Big, luxury S-class + Manual tranny? Makes no sense to me.

Not to get too nit picky but it's really an E in 'homeland' trim. Automatics didn't start to get too trendy until recently. On a trip to see the in-laws, I rode with a friend on the autobahn in his A class 1.7L TD 5 speed auto and it was actually a nice ride, not as small as a Smart car but close!

Thats most certainly a W140.


From what I understand of overseas W140 sales that was not a popular option. Who wants a manual S, its not a 3 series.
The cloth is quite nice.

Getriebe = Gearbox? my German is naught but Antrieb: Manuelle Schaltung
means manual shifting I believe
Looking at the interior pic its clearly a manual shift with that leather 'gator around the shift handle

In europe, you used to be able to buy a top of the line S class with a stick shift, back in the day. You have not lived until you do a four wheel drift in a big W109 car. It was a 1971 300SEL 3.5, with a four speed stick. Imagine air suspension, over 230hp v8, headlight washers, and really good brakes. The seller got upset because I wanted to buy his car for parts, and he invited me for a ride. We easily hit 130kph in his 'hood before doing a powerslide into a four lane road where he ran it through the gears to well over 100mph. I don't know how fast he really went because the speedo was in kph and I was holding on for dear life. The guy also had a Testarossa, so I figured we were somewhat safe, but I was glad to get out of his car when we got back to his house. I think you could get the W126 cars with stick shift as well. Those crazy Germans.

You could get a 280SEL with a stick, that was it.

It looks like it would make for a great sleeper.
