As you may have guessed, I am big car buff, I really like Mercedes Benz cars due to the fact that my father owned one when I was a child. This car is a bit of an impulse buy. I found it on eBay and could not resist buying it. Even though I own 3 cars already and have no place to put them!. I have always liked the W116 body shape. This is the flagship model of the 70's. The W116 model probably the least popular of the big body Mercedes Benz cars however this car is special. It is the 6.9 liter model. This car was the fastest production sedan car in its time and the most technologically advanced. The dry sump lubricated engine produces 286hp and can do 140mph. It has hydraulic self leveling suspension on all four wheels. In 1979 this car cost $40,000 dollars. It had no competition.
