Help me!
« on: 06 January 2014, 02:43 AM »
Hi! I sometimes write on your forum. I am a mb fan, and my next purchase is armored w116, but actually, I want to give up. It's very difficult to find one of 292 cars on such a big planet. Yesterday, I began to think seriously about w116 limo. Where I can find some limos, with engines, on wheels?
Thanks for help.
Ian.

For what it's worth, there's two armoured W126s for sale at the moment:
http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C309973
http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C458312

What about that armoured 116 in Sweden that was available not so long ago on Car and Classic? Was it sold before you got a chance to have a look? I remember linking to it under one of your previous posts.

Basically, your best bet to find something in Europe is to follow Car and Classic and AutoScout24.de.

Check this one out. Not sure if it is one of the 292 "factory" armored ones.

Actually, nobody read my post. This forum can't help me with armored version. Can you help me with limo?

I don't believe there was a factory armoured 116, all of them are conversions to the best of my knowledge.

These were called "Sonderschutz" / "Special Protection" TJ, and came from factory as 350SE/SEL or 450SE/SEL only. Each one was purpose built at the protection level required by whoever was willing to pay the (undisclosed amount of) money. These even have their own category in the EPC.

Maybe I have not understood you, but w116 Sonderschutz are real model. But me, with this forum can't find it.

Thanks or this info. I think it is not factory armoured. Who knows? Factory or not?
