1997 Mercedes-Benz S 600
The Mercedes-Benz S 600 was the ultimate luxury car in its days. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class, formerly known as Sonderklasse, is known for being the next step in automobile technology for decades. The S-Class has debuted many of the company’s latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features, and safety systems. It’s the full-sized luxury flagship vehicle produced by Mercedes-Benz. The S-Class designation for the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz models was officially introduced in 1972 with the W116, and has remained in use ever since.
In 1991, the third generation of the S-Class was introduce with the W140 series replacing the W126 line Mercedes-Benz. The W140 grew in proportions and featured two wheelbase lengths and a shorter-wheelbase W140 coupé. Production totaled 432,732 units.
The W140 cost 25% more than the W126 that it replaced and featured double-pane window glazing, self-closing boot lid and doors, electric windows with a jam-protection feature (lowering when encountering an obstruction), and a heating system which emitted warm air while residual energy was available after the engine was turned off. In 1993, Mercedes-Benz model nomenclature was rationalized, with the SE/SEL/SEC cars becoming the S-Class and alphanumerical designations inverted (e.g. the both 500SE and 500SEL became S500 regardless of wheelbase length). In 1995, the W140 received a minor face lift featuring clear turn signal indicator lenses on the front and rear as well as headlamps fitted with separate low- and high-beam reflectors for the US market. Following the mid-year face lift, the W140 coupe and sedan (Saloon) featured Electronic Stability Control. This particular generation of S-class is heavily referred to or nicknamed as the Mercedes “Shabah/شبح”(Meaning ghost when translated) in many middle eastern countries.
