100% Original Paint:

1976 Mercedes-Benz 280S

Please wait a few moments while our high-resolution photos load.

Filling the shoes of its predecessor, the Mercedes W108/109, built from 1967 until 1972, was no easy task. But the folks in Stuttgart-Sindelfingen did it, and today, several generations of S-Class sedans in the future, we realize that the W116 is the best Sonderklasse ever made.

The W116 is solid as a bank fault. Every bit of it. Its quality is evident the moment you open the door, and close it. Lacking the electronic nannies of its successor, the W126, it is destined to live forever, whereas the lifespan of its successor will be limited by the electronics that control, well, pretty much everything.

The 1976 Mercedes-Benz 280S Sonderklasse Sedan prominently presented here, is the finest W116 we've ever had the pleasure to own. A low mileage California car, it features 100% factory original paint and interior, and boasts an interesting provenance as well.
