About this vehicle
This 1996 Mercedes-Benz S500 is an original. The owner has had it for 4 years. The vehicle runs great and is mainly used for weekend drives.
Has an updated stereo (JVC with Bluetooth audio streaming, telephone and back up camera), original stereo in the trunk.

Legendary C140 Merc. Very rare, M119 5L V8 engine with the monster 7226 5 speed transmission. The best combo - a piece of Mercedes history - this engine was tuned up to 803 HP (added 2 huge turbos but the same basic engine was used) by Sauber in 1989 LeMans race and won the race after 44 years of absence from the race. Mercedes had left the 24 hours in 1955 due to a bad accident (83 spectators died).
I bought the car in 2017 and did thousands in due and preventive maintenance (it was running ok even then). No leaks (valve cover gaskets, lower oil pan gasket, all PCV hoses, spark plugs, chain guides, cam oilers have been changed to aluminum older reliable model, transmission conductor plate, full trans service twice to get the fluid changed up, transmission mount, rear differential service, brake flush, power steering flush, inner and outer tie rod ends and alignment...) the list goes on.
