Unique opportunity: Mercedes S 600 Coupé from the Sultan of Brunei
Too many cars and not enough time to drive them? This can happen when you own several cars! Sure, a pure luxury problem – but one or the other may know it. Now imagine, the collection comprises roughly 3,000 to 7,000 vehicles. So it is not surprising that not all of them can be moved regularly.
Sounds unrealistic? Well, Brunei’s royal family is said to have had a fleet of between 3,000 and 7,000 cars and motorcycles at its peak. The Sultan and his brother Prince Jefri thus created what is probably the largest car collection in the world between 1980 and the early 2000s. A collection full of myths and few facts. Presumably, the majority of the vehicles are still in Brunei, but every now and then individual cars can escape from Brunei.
S 600 Coupé with less than 1000 kilometers on the clock
Former base new price of DM 221,950
The new price of the S 600 Coupé is remarkable. With a base price of DM 221,950, it was more expensive than a 600 SL or 600 SEL. All three rely on the same 6.0 liter V12 (M 120) with 394 hp and 570 Nm maximum torque. A four-speed automatic was installed until the summer of 1995 (later a five-speed automatic). The S 600 Coupé accelerates to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and manages an electronically limited 250 km/h.
