For years the Mercedes-Benz S Class has been the gold standard that all other automotive manufacturers compare their luxury cars to stately timelss and innovate in every generation. The S-Class is often the first vehicle to come to mind when the world's wealthy are in seach of a new automobile. For the 1970s generation the S-class (W116), the most desirable iteration was the 450SEL 6.9.

Based on the long-wheelbase W116 chassis, Mercedes-Benz shoehorned a gigantic 6.9-liter V8 into the engine bay, one capable of producing 286 BHP. Despite the car's monumental gross weight of 5,335 pounds, the 6.9 accelerates from 0-60 mph in a little over seven seconds and boasts a top speed of nearly 140 mph mind bening performance for such a heavy vehicle. By the end of production, only 1816 of the 6.9 were sold to the United States over the course of four years of production.
