Old-generation S Class is technologically sophisticated, but just too big. Virtually unrivalled for prestige, comfort, power and reliability, these behemoths lack the discreet elegance of the BMW 7-Series or Audi A8.

Buying used

Obsolete, but still retains a certain cachet. Great value for money. The 1991 generation S-Class offered 300 SE/SEL, 400 SE/SEL, 500 SE/SEL, and 600 SEL models. SEL models are long-wheelbase, giving an extra four inches of rear legroom.

The bloated boardroom Panzer is a trophy car. Initial ownership often had more to do with the appearance of wealth than taste - and that's why it finds buyers for the same reason today. But they're fussy, so that means the car must be in first class condition with a full service history.
