W140 S600 added to the collection

Before the summer I acquired a 1996 w140 S600 (Japan spec) as an addition to my w123 280CE, hence the updated site main picture as of July 2017. It is actually the same car I did the review on last year and the offer was simply too good to refuse. The car is an extremely good find with under 70.000 km original km in its 20 years lifespan.

The car collection is now actually beginning to be a collection rather than a car! My plans with this car is to keep it completely original and use it mainly for long road trips with extreme comfort, silence and v12 power on-demand. I also hope the value for this flagship will increase significantly since the 600 version is rarer than most production vehicles and the value is now around the lowest it can be (I hope).

I will be posting maintenance DIYs where possible with this car, which are extremely hard to find by the way! And I will be looking into doing car related videos, starting with filming the S600 and then the 280CE. I did some camera tests now in the summer, which I will post almost immediately under the Videos section. I am though planning to making betterĀ videos with use of external mic for excellent sound quality which so many car videos lack except high end production.
