Built at the end of the ‘over-engineered’ era of Mercedes, the W140 S600 was already a mightily impressive car, boasting innovations in comfort (double glazed windows), safety (Brake Assist System) and performance (0-60 in 5.6 seconds). It’s what AMG did with it, however, that elevated it to legendary status.

In the early 90s, unlike today, you couldn’t simply walk into your local Mercedes dealer to order the AMG model of your choice – especially not an S70. To be worthy of one of those, you had to be better connected and better off financially than most. In fact, it’s estimated that only 18 Mercedes S70s were ever made.

This exceptional 1992 model started life as a special order car in Japan and was fitted with the optional O.Z AMG Aero 3-piece wheels with body coloured centres. Together with the already muscular shape of the W140, as well as the beefy AMG bodykit, the end result is one of the meanest looking cars ever produced.

AMG’s most significant modification, however, was the 7.0 V12 that powers the car to 60mph in 5.2 seconds and to a top speed of an epic 186mph! The engine (of which only 123 were ever made) is the same unit as that of the Pagani Zonda C12-S and Zonda GR, as well as the Mercedes SL70 AMG and puts out no less than 496bhp and a staggering 719nm of torque.

With just 67k kilometers on the clock and having received recent work including an engine and gearbox service, new brakes all around and a refurb of all 4 wheels, the car is in exceptional condition throughout and wants for nothing.

The Blue-Black metallic paintwork is flawless and all panel gaps and shut lines are correct. The black leather interior and all wood trim are excellent, and all of the switches and features operate perfectly.

This is a superb example of one of the rarest and most notorious Mercedes ever made and is ready to be enjoyed as a cross-continent crusher, or as part of a collection.
