Help me to choose the perfect benz for me :)

Hello all, so now i have saved up some money for myself, and i'm going to buy another car.

The car will be used for fun, and will not be my daily driver. Just a fun/cruising car.

Its one of these i want:

W126 560SEL with kompressor +++ over 400bhp. Also extremly rare custom interior. Full AMG body kit.

W140 S500/600

W124 E500 in perfect condition.

R129 SL500/600

I really like the 560SEL and the E500, but i don't know about the others.

As i said i want something fun to drive, so being that the 560 is tuned, is just a good thing, since i probably will tune the car i'm buying. Of course i will not tune or touch anything on the E500, being that is a such a special car.

I want to hear what other people think about a fun car to drive or to cruise with.

Hope somebody can answer my question

I'm biased since I have a 126, but I would go with the supercharged 560. There aren't too many supercharged ones out there, and even the stock 560's are very fast for such a large car. It would also be the most reliable,(assuming it's been treated well,) and cheapest to maintain. If you are looking for something to hold its value though, the E500 would probably be your best bet. It would also be more fun for city driving due to its smaller size and 5-link rear suspension. IMO out of those though, the 560 with an amg kit is by far the best looking, as its design has stood the test of time and still looks amazing. The 140,124, and 129 are already very dated looking, without the classic look that the 126 has.
