Start Up & Rev of a 1988 Mercedes Benz 420 SEL. This has a 4.2L V8 making 228 HP while paired to a 4 Speed auto. The W126 is probably the Most & last truly reliable Mercedes built. These just little complexity, great handling for their time built and heavy weight. Tough As nails car. This generation Mercedes is 1 of my favorites. I rode in a 1990 420 SEL throughout most in my childhood. The power figures are not impressive on paper but when driven personally, they really move around quick. 420 is my favorite. The 300 SEL with the Inline 6 is really slow, and the 560 SEL is fast k but Guzzles gas like a Ford Excursion. Which makes 420 the Sweet spot. Biggest downside in these is the Seats. They are hard as a rock and can leave you flat assed on long trips.
