Published on February 26, 2014 by Tycho de Feijter
A wondrous white W140 Mercedes-Benz S500 L, Spotted in China just outside the eastern section of the Fourth Ring Road in Beijing. The vehicle looked dirty & dusty but was otherwise in a reasonable shape. I passed by the same place earlier that day and then I saw two men working hard under the bonnet, indicating a problem with the fatass V8 engine.
The S500 L is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine with an output of 335hp and 480nm. The L was the stretched variant with the wheelbase extended with exactly 99 mm to 3139mm, bringing total length to 5213. The W140 was manufactured from 1991 until 1998, it was also the first S-class that Mercedes-Benz officially sold in China. This particular car has an original black license plate, indicating it once belonged to a foreign-funded company. Time now for our Famous W140 Mercedes-Benz S600 China Collection™: S600 on the market, perfect S600, the best S600, Pullman S6000, S500 with W210 E, motorcade, motorcade, S500, crash, body kit, S500 in white, S600, and another S600.
