Was this the best S-Class ever? Well if the ruling classes were setting the benchmark in the 80’s then the answer is a definite ‘yes’. Dignitaries and high-ranking politicians the world-over chose the W126 as their mode of transport by default. Sitting in the back seat it is easy to see why. Even today the way the car simply glides over the road suggests it is riding on a cushion of air. This particular 1988 SEL which is being sold on behalf of the owner has had a mint spent on it since 2004. The interior has had a complete re-fit with its re-upholstered seats, fresh carpets and interior trim. Externally the car benefits from good quality paintwork, new trim and refurbished wheels – all told a whopping £18,000 has been spent over the last few years which says something for the enthusiasm and commitment of the previous owners. Even with 158k on the clock the engine starts on the button and pulls like the Orient Express. Travel in first-class style and comfort with the rear blinds pulled, feet on the foot-rest and rear seats reclined  – and all this for £6000! Click here for more details.
