This 1996 Mercedes-Benz S420 was registered to its original owner in California until the selling dealer’s acquisition in April 2022, and it now has 47k miles. The car is finished in black over matching leather and is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes 16″ eight-hole wheels, a glass sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, power-adjustable front seats, a power-operated rear window shade, and a factory cassette stereo. The spark plugs, fuel filter, and an ignition coil were replaced in preparation for the sale along with the tires. This W140 is now offered with manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The body is finished in black (040) with bright bumper and window trim. Exterior features include a power-operated glass sunroof, headlight washers and wipers, and power-adjustable mirrors. The selling dealer notes paint scrapes on the rear bumper cover.
Chrome-finished 16″ eight-hole wheels are wrapped in 235/60 Hankook Kinergy ST tires that were installed in preparation for the sale. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with multi-piston calipers.
The cabin features power-adjustable front seats with position memory upholstered in black leather, while walnut trim accents the dashboard, center console, and door panels. Amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, power windows, cruise control, rear ashtrays and cigar lighters, a power-operated rear window shade, and a factory cassette stereo.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel is mounted on a power-adjustable column and frames a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, an analog clock, and supplementary gauges. The digital odometer indicates approximately 47k miles, less than 1k of which were added by the selling dealer.
The 4.2-liter V8 was factory rated at 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque when new. The spark plugs, fuel filter, and cylinder #4 ignition coil were replaced in May 2022 when an oil change was also performed.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery.
Manufacturer’s literature is included in the sale.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in California.
