Mercedes-Benz 450SE w116 W116 450 SEL Long term ownership 1974

Allmän beskrivning : Life was so simple in the past. Take the Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL. It does exactly what says on the tin: a 4.5 litre V8 engine with the “S” standing for S-class, the “E” standing for Einspritzer (injector) and the “L” for long wheel base. What a delightful car! The “S” class has always been built like a tank and our car is no exception to the rule. Amazingly this car has only travelled 25,985 miles since it was first registered in 1974! There is nothing to give away the fact that this Red Metallic 571 S-class has blown out 46 birthday candles. She still drives as majestically as a new S-class, transporting her passengers in serenity and sumptuous luxury. This example was supplied to its first owner in the States in 1974, who kept it until 2019. The car’s history is particularly well documented. All insurance papers are there as well as a copy of the old title, many invoices from her American days and to top it all a complete car wallet containing the metal guarantee disc and Datenkarte. The car has a red metallic finish with white ivory leather upholstery. This is a most delightful combination that properly reflects the car’s elegance. With its 5.06 metre length the Mercedes-Benz is by any standard an enormous car. The M117 90 degree V8 engine develops 193 Ps and takes this 1,730 kg limousine to a top of 210 km/hr. The engine is coupled to a 3-speed automatic, perfectly matched to this limousine’s relaxed character. Naturally you will want for nothing when driving this S-class. The car has air-conditioning, sunroof, electric windows, comfortable seats cruise control and a Becker radio (together with its guarantee certificate!). This car is still the ultimate cruiser thanks to excellent maintenance. Because of its low-mileage it has never needed an engine overhaul. This Mercedes-Benz S-class is also a very interesting proposition as it has youngtimer tax relief (in the Netherlands). In summery we have sourced a wonderful one-owner S-class in unique condition and with a lovely provenance. Gallery Aaldering is Europe’s leading Classic Cars specialist since 1975!

om Mercedes-Benz
År 1886 byggde Karl Benz Benz Patent Motorwagen allmänt betraktas som den första bilen. Lite visste han det var att vara i början av världens mest kända biltillverkare. -Mind Du satsningen finansierades av hans hustru Bertha Benz.

Inte alltför långt Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft grundades av Gottlieb Daimler och Wilhelm Maybach började marknadsföra sin bil 1901 använder nu kända namn: Mercedes (spanska för skänk från ovan), som valdes efter deras distributör Emil Jellinek dotter.

För att göra en lång historia kort, Daimler fusionerades 1926 med Benz & Cie., Blev Daimler-Benz och anta Mercedes-Benz som sin bil varumärke

Även anses av vissa konservativa sanningen är faktiskt tvärtom, Daimler-Benz historia är fylld med "firsts": Honeycomb radiator, float förgasare, fyra hjulbromsarna 1924, (även om Duesenburg Model A rapporterades att idrottsliga dem så tidigt som 1922 ), första dieseldrivna personbilar 1936, Mercedes-Benz 260 D, första direkt bränsleinsprutning i Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (väl inte riktigt så liten 2-takts Gutbrod hade faktiskt den första direkt bränsleinsprutning), fram och bak deformationszoner ie. säkerhetscell av Béla Barényi patenterades 1951 och introducerades i "Ponton" -modellerna, Anti-bromssystem (ABS) erbjöds först på W116 450SEL 6.9, första produktions krockkuddar ... och listan kan göras lång.

Under sina 100 + år har Mercedes producerat mer än en skälig andel av ikoniska bilar; SSKL, 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, W100 600 Pullman, W111 280SE 3,5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6,3, W201 2,3-16 Cosworth för att bara nämna några.

Man får inte glömma de berömda Silverpilarna (Silberpfeile) antingen W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 som alla var mer än kapabla att kastar sina motståndare på banan.
