The 280 series cars (W108 chassis), all had the regular coil spring suspension.

The 300 series cars (W109 chassis), which is the same body style, had the air bag suspension.

They drive pretty nice for a 40 year old car. The 4.5 liter V8 is a nice motor. It is a single overhead cam design, with Bosch D-Jet electronic fuel injection. I get about 12 mpg in town, and 15 mpg on the highway.

I have read that never were homologated in America.

Well the brand could be studied in some MBA as how to sink a triumphant brand.

As Lancia was like the Audi of the 80s and 90s and now is nothing. The new Delta is horrible so you don't loose anything.

Do you have Fiat or Alfa? Alfa is pretty good nowadays.

Land Cruiser/S65 pairing is great.

I remember really loving that car, because it was so large and cool and had a diesel engine and 4x4. I don't think I was older than 5 or 6 years.

The S65 is a sick car. It's about 600 hp, right?

Yep, something about the old Land Cruisers hints at a kind of timelessness few cars can achieve.

Thanks man, I bought it for a steal when the newer S-class came out. Specs are: 604 bhp, 738 lb-ft torque, and 0-62mph in about 4.2 seconds.

Thanks. You get the best of both worlds in one of the best and most reliable 4x4s ever made in addition to an incredibly fast and powerful sedan.

The S65 is incredible, it will have collector's value someday. If that is not important, then drive the turd out of it, because it'll return that much as well. Incredible car, it's like the 600 Pullman or 500E of the noughts.

Good to know. Thanks! I had read that the airbag suspensions were sort of a maintenance nightmare. I'd much rather have good old coil springs.

I don´t think Pontiac has the same status in the US as Alfa Romeo has (or had) in Europe...
