Great Cruiser! — Well would have liked to finish this project but i had bigger fish to fry, so i sold it. A BEAutiful looking car but time was not on my side. The interior was awesome. Big, comfortable, and clean! You feel like king of the road in this!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

It's A Timeless Classic From One Of The Worlds Most Prestigious Car Producers — A timeless shape and classey appeal, the W107 is one of Mercedes most enduring and desirable models ever. This model is a Straight 6, 2.8 litre fuel injected twin cam manual, with around 200bhp. Top speed of 214km/h. A total of 107, 038 were produced between 1974-1989. Beautiful and fun to drive, with both hard and soft tops.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Exclusive imposing car

Cons

Milage...

My Maffia Car — Ammmazing classicer! What a car! If you look at it, you think of a Black president with little flags on the front! The interieur was Cream leather with seats like you dont find now a days. Real springs on the backseat which realy bounc, bounc and bouce! It has alot of power under the hood: 2.8 V6 super petrol. For it's weigt it really has good acceleration and go's up to 200km/h! But the milage... About 15 to 20L per 100Km when driving at ease.. So double if you like to give gas. -> Me (+- €500 a month only for gas). Brakes: old brakes give a long brakeline, that was my problem. I trashed the car completly in a big crash! My new car is also great but does not have the head turns when you pass by. I miss the maffia charm of my exclusive BIG Mercedes!

Great All-rounder By Syed

Well built and fun to drive, though feels a little under-powered at times which in-turn might be because of unusually tall gear ratios....I would say its a great car, only let down by reliability issu... Read More

Classic german sedan. Smooth straight-six mated to a 4-speed automatic. Close to no equipment at all, apart from armrests, radio and a sunroof. Has a nice ride and a quality touch. Was driven by a gr... Read More

Bloody huge, but 7 seats and enough space to move a small army makes it hugely practical, plus it was quite quick considering its size! Nice interior and despite 220,000 on the clock it just didnt wan... Read More
