I’m a sucker for oddball cars. Be it a rare color, prototype or oddity that might have not lit up the sales charts, you’ve got me hooked. Today, we’ll take a look at something that few in the US knew was an option for 1994 over at Mercedes-Benz: a manual transmission W140 S class. Yes, a few of these exist out there, but not many. The 5-speed manual was relegated to the entry level six-cylinder models in the range, such as this S280. It’s fairly common knowledge that the entry level S class in the US, the S320, with its slightly larger six cylinder engine wasn’t one to light up the quarter mile. But with the row-your-own option in this S280 for sale in Italy, at least it allows you to make the most of what you’ve got.
