Mercedes S-Class: I Am Your Father
The biggest Benz of all started out less like a saloon, more like a big red bus…
Posted: 21 Mar 2013
You'll remember this car: it's the one Jeremy actually bought with his own money way back in Series 11 (James bought the Rolls-Royce), and it's a monster of a car. It appeared a year and a half after the last 300 rolled off the production line, and came with a 6.3-litre V8 to make it the top dollar Benz.
As Jeremy told you back then, it was favoured by the kind of gentleman who had the ability to order an air strike at a moment's notice, and was thus both feared and respected. But it was impeccably built: air suspension, hydraulic appointments all-round (including that boot), and a wheelbase big enough to dominate.
