2 weeks old Mercedes S-Class burst into fire

Recommended Posts

A brand new Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTec belonging to an elderly German couple suffered a total write-off after a fierce fire started in its engine bay at a small town in Germany.

The cause of fire was not mentioned in the report but it was said that the flagship sedan suffered extensive damage under its hood.

At the heart of Mercedes' W222 S350 BlueTEC is a 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel powerplant mated to a 7-speeder auto 'box to produce an output of 258hp and 620Nm of torque that will launch the 2-tonner sedan up to a max speed of 250kmh.

Majority of brands have parts sourced from India or China nowadays. It is not something uncommon.

wooden horse.

 

Wood supports fire.

 

Nothing to do with fortune telling. It's FS and evolving cyclical environmental change.

Correct.

anyway, visited Cars expo, saw S class from PI.

 

For potential buyers, pls note that some models are short wheel base version, for me, if buy S class must get the long wheelbase version.

(C&C all long wheel base version, Lexus LS borneo motors bring both short and long wheelbase).

Long wheelbase is useful if got Ah Mat. If owner is the Ah Mat, what's the pt?
