The Mercedes-Benz W140 is a series of flagship vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz from 1991 to 1998 in sedan/saloon and coupe body styles and two wheelbase lengths (SE and SEL). Mercedes-Benz unveiled the W140 S-Class at Geneva Motor Show in March 1991 with sales launch in April 1991.
All models were renamed in June 1993 as part of the corporate-wide nomenclature changes for 1994 model year on, becoming S regardless of wheelbase length or body style as well as fuel type.
The three body types are carried over from the W126: four-door sedan/saloon in two wheelbase lengths and one two-door coupé. The model types are assigned as W140 for standard wheelbase, V140 for long wheelbase, and C140 for coupé. The W140 S-Class introduced noted safety innovations:
- Brake Assist System BAS
- Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
- Xenon High-intensity discharge headlights
- Side airbags and seat occupancy sensors
- Automatic windscreen wipers with rain sensors
This model also introduced a lot of comfort and convenience options and more drivetrain technologies.
