Facts about the model

Mercedes W116 serien - med flera olika motoralternativ - blev en stor succé när den introducerades 1972. Den ansågs vara dåtidens kanske säkraste bil. Kvaliteten var också på toppnivå och den var först i Mercedes-familjen att kallas ”S-klasse”.
Bilen utsågs till Årets Bil i Europa 1974. En titel som normalt bara tilldelas små- och mellanklassbilar. Designern bakom den lyckade modellen var Friedrich Geiger som också var pappa till Mercedes-klassikerna 540 K och 300 SL. Båda dessa modeller är sen länge väldigt eftertraktade av samlare och säljs numera för rena fantasibelopp.
