Lets see what everyone would kill to own.

I think S65 is the best of them all. Bad ass as they come.

Lots of other models I´d like to see in that list.
Don´t know much about the older models, so I tend to stick to models ranging from around 1980 and newer.
The W/V/C126 S-class was quite a car of its time, not to mention the old 600 Pullmann (ok, that´s a lot older than 1980, but still a tremendous car!).

The W124 500 E is also worth mentioning (overall, I consider the 124-series to be the best Benz, at least over the past 25 years).

And let´s not forget our beloved W140s - wouldn´t mind getting my hands on a loaded, mint condition ´98 (as we don´t get ´99s here in Europe :) ) S500 with low mileage.

Out of that list, I chose SL65, which I went in last week one friday night. Incredible car.


However, the W140 (a 1999 S600 or a Grand Edition) would be my top pick.

Are you kidding me !!!! as much as i worship the w140....but come on !!!
non of the above cars are in the same class as the Gullwing....


If i had to do this poll i would put these cars to choose from..


Of course the mercedes sport classic------
----------------------------Gullwing--------------------

Most expensive car ever sold in history.which happens to be a Mercedes..

---------------1954 Mercedes W 196 -- ($24 million)---------------

The classic of classics...8th most expensive car sold in history...

----------1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster----------


and just to be fair to the modern mercedes.........i would put mercedes flagship.

----------The 600 v12 series (whether it is 600sel, sl600, s600,s65, etc..)-----

And of course mercedes modern gullwing .....

------------------Mercedes SLR------------------------------------------

Ghost I hear what your saying M8y but to myself Benz is not about sports cars , they have and do make some realy nice sporty type cars . I see Benz as the maker of the best 4 door ride you can get . I have a Lotus now thats a sports car ! to the bare bone , I have had Astons for the big lux two door , but the W140is a flagship and not just a trying to cover the market model or how much HP can we get out of this baby , they do nothing for me not even the gullwing or the SLR . Just the way I see them ;)

Well...we already do have a W140...so no need to wish for that.

My vote went to a s65, its an ultimate sleeper. Great potential for power increase.
Quarter mile times in low 12's, 11;s?/???? Thats just crazy. It would rock spanking Ferraris in a 4 door car.

Ghost, i have to agree with you, but i'm partial to my Sebastian, of course, living the dream about 2 hrs north of you. we should do a benz race down 39 sometime, oh say at 4 or 5 in the morning.

Ultimate Benz:

Mercedes Benz W140/C140

Mercedes Benz R129

Mercedes Benz W126/C126

Mercedes Benz CLS

Mercedes Benz W221

Mercedes Benz W125 CL

That's the ultimate Benz :)
you might want to re-consider the W219 CLS Class. They are really beautiful cars, but they are utterly useless because there is no headroom at all because of those pillars. Even in the front, you can hurt your head because the of those pillars.

Its a good dream car, but a useless car to live with IMO.

I don't know because i havent seat in them. I 've seen at least 15 units over hear and black colour looks good on them. They look very 'Mercedes' .That's why it'a an ultimate Mercedes Benz. You know what i mean. Some other Merc looks too Japanese.
