This is one of the alltime great luxury
cars. Hand built, the W-140 model of
these few years is one of the heaviest
cars ever made (5950 pounds). It's
quiet, safe, and geared for highway
speed ather than zipping around town.
Even with the economical 3.2 liter
engine it cruises effortlessly at 120
mph. The bigger engine in the 500
helps at the low end in city
acceleration I would imagine. Gas
mileage is about 19 MPG.
Body style still gets looks everywhere
it goes. Comfort, weight, double thick
window panes are just unbeatable.
