This handsome W140 S-class is presented in the stylish two-tone paint scheme of Blue-Black Metallic with Alto Grey lower trim – undoubtedly one of the smartest Mercedes colour combinations from this period. The gleaming bodywork remains largely original and in excellent order throughout. On close inspection there are one or two honest marks to be found on the bodywork and bumpers, the worst being a minor graze on the lower rear trim, but overall it’s a fine example indeed. In fact, having spent most of its life in Japan, the car is amazingly free from any of the rust issues commonly found on this era of Mercedes, especially the underside.
The S320’s interior space is ample to say the least. Legroom is copious and the seats are notably large and supportive, providing a feeling of luxury and comfort. The leather upholstery still feels soft and supple, and there is no damage or major wear to report. The vast dashboard is free from any unsightly cracks and so is the centre console wood trim – a notorious weak point if over-exposed to sunlight. Furthermore, all of the switchgear is in excellent order and the carpets are kept fresh throughout by a full set of genuine Mercedes overmats, really completing the interior.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
Beneath the large bonnet is an orderly engine bay appearing in great shape, free from any signs of damage or poor repair. At the heart of this S-Class is a 3.2-litre straight-six mated to a silken four-speed automatic transmission. The car is wonderfully smooth on test and drives particularly well, but what really sets this one apart is the exceptional rust-free condition of the underside.
Despite its very low mileage of just 34k miles the W140 is accompanied by a great maintenance history. Unlike many Japanese imports this particular example still retains its original maintenance booklet and accompanying service documents from Japan. The last service was done by our trusted classic car specialists at 29k miles; a fresh service and full mechanical inspection will be carried out prior to sale for the new keeper’s peace of mind.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The S320 sits on its original 16-inch Mercedes alloys. The wheels retain their factory polished finish and present to a good original standard although a perfectionist may choose to refurb – we have left them unrestored to preserve their originality. They are shod in quality tyres all round with plenty of tread remaining.
This excellent and low mileage W140 S-Class was first registered in August 1995. It resided on the salt-free roads of Japan until 2016 when it was purchased by 4 Star and imported into the UK with all taxes paid on arrival. The car was then fully registered by us before swiftly selling to its new owner. The odometer now reads 55,326km, which equates to a mere 34,377 miles.
Within the History File you’ll find the original Mercedes document pack containing the service booklet, owner’s manual, and Mercedes stereo instructions. Other paperwork includes a raft of underside photos, UK registration documents, MOT certificates, and maintenance invoices from new. Services have been carried out at the following mileages: 1,419 – 1,895 – 9,751 – 15,259 – 16,680 – 17,129 – 17,778 – 19,542 – and lastly at 29,591 miles in August 2018. The car will be freshly serviced prior to sale with a full mechanical inspection carried out also. The advisory-free MOT is valid until October 2020.
