Mercedes Benz 350SEL FV (1978)

Mercedes launched V8 engined versions of its new S-Class alongside the six cylinder models in 1972. The V8 model range included 350 and 450 types with a choice of short wheelbase SE or long wheelbase SEL bodies. Most UK imported cars came "fully loaded" with power operated features and automatic transmission.

The original Mercedes S-Class "reigned" as the "best car in the world" unchallenged until 1980. Performance, build-quality and presence were incredible in 1972 and still remained impressive even in 1980.
