"The W116 was Mercedes-Benz flagship luxury sedan produced from September 1972 until 1980. The W116 were the first Mercedes-Benz models to be officially called the S-Class, although earlier sedan models had already unofficially been designated with the letter 'S' – for Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The car was presented in September 1972. The model range initially included two versions of the M110 engine a straight-six with 2746cc, the 280 S and the 280 SE, plus the 350 SE, powered by the V8 with 3.5 litre engine which naturally was more desirable to those driving a flagship Mercedes-Benz.
This silver with contrasting blue trim example was first registered in August 1974, receipts in the history file lead us to believe this example was restored between 1998 and 2000 with numerous Mercedes-Benz invoices for parts and has since been looked after by a number of Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. Offered with an MoT certificate until July 2019 this example of the 70's flagship Mercedes-Benz is sure to appreciated by like minded Benz fans."
