    Fantastic car.

    These really are huge engineering masterpieces, if not the most pretty of MB models.

    Back in the early 90's this car must have cost more than an average house in the UK?

    It does look in very good order.

    They cost 100k in 1996 .However In 1991 it cost 88k - which is coincidentally 128k in todays money.Don't know what extras can account for the extra 32k
    Surprised car is not white - v popular colour for Arabs

    so in todays money an S600 is cheaper to buy. However the S65 must be equivalent cost wise.

    Closest equivalent to S65 was a 450SEL 6.9 - which was 118k in todays money - so S65 more expensive.
    A 1966 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet was 66k in todays money - close enough to a 70K CLK63 Cabriolet.
    A SL Gullwing from 1954 was only 107k todays money - way cheaper than equivalent Mclaren SLR
