Mercedes W140 S Class - S280
As far I can tell this 96 S 280 is still in excellent original condition and is a credit to its 5 previous owners. This is the facelift model but unusually it has a 4 stage auto transmission instead of the 5 stage that was standard. Even though this is the base model it still comes with airbags, traction control and electric front seats. Despite being a large car it is very smooth and easy to drive. The 2.8 litre twin cam straight six engine delivers plenty of power and is surprisingly economical.
