... unfortunately those are just pretty looking renditions, but MB never officially made any coupe variants of the W116 that I know of... closest might be the SL/C, or CE... nod.gif

My aunt's husband once had a 80s Jag XJ6, nope it didnt have a 5.0L engine but with a 3.4L engine, bought and owned since new.
Imagine whats the fuel consumption when that car had 2 petrol tanks.

Old Jags are not popular in Malaysia; needs someone to appreciate British engineering.

I somehow started to appreciate these classics as I grew older. W126 300 SE and W124 still stands out to me.

Love BMW's E39 and E34 too.

Old Jags have their 'don't mess with me look' and i love it!

Will definitely make this my hobby someday. I just don't have the time and space in my house now to keep these beauties. smile.gif

300k is considered ok if the car is well kept! I remembered I had a scale model of this when I was a teenager! laugh.gif

I love the W140 . Beautiful land yard cruisers
Unfortunately it needs extra TLC for these old cruisers.
Now (in 2019) the car is already 21 years old.

Engine is reliable but I have heard several cases of gearbox giving way due to age and massive weight.
Someone in Thailand is creative enough, to drop in a 1KD Hilux Diesel engine. More torque than the original S320 3.2L engine
However back in Malaysia, whether such conversion (petrol to diesel) will pass JPJ, is another issue.

W140s are quite robust and generally should withstand regular use if serviced and maintained well.

My family's S280 is still being used occasionally during weekends; just that some of the interior trims are showing the usual signs of wear and tear.

Good to hear that there are still some caring W140 owners. Sometimes it's sad to see some W140 being abandon because the owner either can't maintain or can't find the right spare parts.
Just in front of my house there is a W220 left abandon for months. Nobody claims it or fix it.

Just curious is the 2.8L undersized for such huge car?
