Here is some info found at wikipedia about the w140
The Mercedes-Benz W140 was a series of flagship vehicles manufactured by
the German automotive marque Mercedes-Benz. The car premiered at the Geneva
Motor Show in March 1991, with the first examples rolling off the
production line on August 6, 1991. Short (SE) and long (SEL) wheelbase
sedans were offered initially, as well as the coupé (SEC) body style from
January 1992. Like all Mercedes-Benz lines, the W140 S-Class was
rationalized in late 1993 using the new "letter-first" nomenclature,
dropping the named distinction between body styles. The SE/SEL/SEC cars
were renamed the S-Class, with alphanumerical designations inverted. For
example the both 500SE and 500SEL became S500 regardless of wheelbase
length. In 1996 the coupé models following a mid-life update where
separated into the CL-class. The W140 series S-Class was superseded by the
W220 S-Class in 1999 after an eight year production run, the coupé by the
C215 CL-Class for model year 2000.
As with its predecessor, the W140 was the first of the "next generation" of
Mercedes-Benz models to feature the company's new design theme. The W140
introduced new innovations such as double-pane window glazing ,
self-closing doors and boot lid, electric windows which lowered back down
upon encountering an obstruction, rear-parking markers which rose from the
rear wings (discontinued on later vehicles, and replaced with
sonar-assisted parking) and a heating system which emitted warm air after
the engine was turned off. The vehicle is believed to have cost
Mercedes-Benz over $1 billion to develop.
For details like this, the W140 is often known as the last Mercedes to be
"overengineered," a Mercedes trait that was costing the company in product
delays and overbudgeting. For the consumer, the W140 cost a considerable 25
percent more than its predecessor, the W126. In addition, the intense
pressure from Infiniti and Lexus led to adding more features and options as
to set the W140 apart from the rest and to justify the higher price.
The W140 was to feature air suspension as an option, but Mercedes was still
perfecting the technology and chose to launch air-suspension in the next
generation S-Class in 2000. Following the mid-year facelift in 1994,
Mercedes-Benz made Electronic Stability Control an optional fixture to both
sedan and coupé body styles in the W140 range. Both the sedan and coupé
body styles were equipped with Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR) as a
Like its predecessor, the car was available in two wheelbase lengths (short
W140 and long V140) along with the C140 coupé. In 1992, a new 6 litre 408
engine joined the lineup for the first time with the 600SE, 600SEL and
600SEC. A "V12" badge was affixed to the C-pillar.
In 1993, the 408 horsepower V12 engine was
slightly detuned to 389 horsepower to comply with
tighter emission control regulations in the United States and Europe. The
V8 models were tuned down from 322 horsepower to 315 horsepower.
The W140 S600 was available with a leather dashboard and a suede headliner,
unlike the V8 and inline 6-cylinder models. In 1994 the S600 also came with
a wood/leather steering wheel, wood/leather gear shifter, wood rear ashtray
covers, and two tone leather seating further distinctions from its lower
Following the new Mercedes-Benz tradition of mid-life facelifts (starting
with the W126 in 1986), the W140 received a minor facelift in 1994. The
clear turn signal indicator lenses on the front were the most obvious
change, as was the grille including a new and distinctive one for S600's.
Headlamps were fitted with separate low H7, H1 fog, and high H1 beam
reflectors in 1995, pre 1995 used an H4 bulb and H3 for the fog lamp. In
1994 the two tone exterior bumpers were painted to match the upper portions
of the vehicles and the rear indicator lenses became clear.
