Spotted in China: W140 Mercedes-Benz S-Class with AMG body kit

A shiny white and slightly Bling W140 Mercedes-Benz S320 S-Class limousine with a period AMG body kit, Spotted in China in a super car shop on the Beijing Tuning Street in the east of the capital. The brilliant Benz was in perfect shape and recently imported from the United States for a wealthy Mercedes collector in China.


Black windows all around allowing for secret ‘conversation’ inside this fine porn-star style Mercedes-Benz. AMG alloys are very shiny and the rear tires are gigantic, typical for German tuning in the golden days of the early nineteen-nineties. At the time AMG was still an independent company, Mercedes-Benz only acquired AMG in 1999 and the W140 was made from 1991 until 1998. AMG so, could do whatever it wanted with the W140 S!


Warning! Looking at the right of the picture might cause Yellow Ass super Car Fever. The W140 S30 was powered by a 3.2 liter six-in-line with 228hp and 315nm. AMG however wasn’t known for leaving engines alone, easily extracting up to 50 extra horses from the solid Mercedes power plants.

The W140 was the very first Mercedes-Benz S-Class that was officially exported to China. Time now for our Famous China-Mercedes-Benz W140 Collection™: black S500, green S280, S600 in black, Pullman S6000, S500 with W210 E, motorcade, motorcade, S500, crash, body kit, S500 in white, S600, and another S600.

    Is it possible to register the W140 generation in Beijing? or are they passed the maximum age?

    @MWL. It is officially not allowed to register a newly-imported W140 in Beijing, but if you know the right people it is very well possible…

    Older W140’s that are already registered can still legally drive in Beijing, but it is getting more difficult like with any other older car. For example, you need to have it inspected twice a year instead of once and inspection fees are more expensive (1400 yuan for my 1998 Beijing-Jeep, twice a year).

    Thanks for the answer. Also, does this dealer have a name or website?

    I cannot help but point out that this car does not have an AMG bodykit, only the wheels. The car has a parktronic front and rear bumper, that’s about it.
