Ruled by the heart rather than brain, development cost in double of the original budget to 1 pounds, making the W140 inherently a loss. Sales no. reflect the unsuccessful story of the partly because of high partly because of its heavy environmental unfriendly image.

learned from this Mercedes created a very car, W220, to substitute the The first to be changed is the size of the Having seen the success of LS400, which outsold all luxurious sedans in the US, Mercedes the new S-class to be much smaller its predecessor and runs much to the mainstream rivals. Length / / height have been by 55 / 31 / 41mm. Furthermore, via using strength steel, all-alloy and discarding the double glazing in the the Foreman becomes Holyfield. wheelbase version of S500, for weighs 1855kg instead of the 2150kg, this means a of 300 kg.

Gone is the concert hall-like The tilter windscreen and rear make occupants subjectively their head room restricted. In fact, those was too BIG in the past and was never very Similarly, the width of the old car was excessive. other than dressed-up Footballers never need so shoulder room. On the contrary, it made your passenger lonely. The new car just reduces useless space to achieve and weight reduction.
