Awesome comfort and performance....
Passes everything on the road except a petrol station........
The last of the really great Mercedes saloon cars, built to uncompromising standards of luxury and quality. Powered by the almost unbreakable V8 engine with a vast automatic gearbox, the car easily powers to 155mph. Designed as an executive autobahn cruiser, these cars can be bought from upwards of an insane £500 for a tidy runner. Insurance is around the £150 mark for a 42 year old with no no claims bonus (including breakdown cover). Ideal for weekend cruising and going to shows, don't ever think of using it for the school run as I did when my van broke down: it laps fuel at an alarming rate! (15mpg). On a run however, the car can manage 32mpg at a steady 55mph so it is an acceptable cruiser.
In summary, if you want ultra reliability, luxury and acceleration on a par with an Aston martin DB7, for very little money: this could be the car for you!
