"Hello Jesmond, It's been 2 weeks since the Alfa Sprint arrived, and we have covered around 750 km in that time. We are both loving driving the car, and are so glad that we managed to find such an amazingly original example of this classic model. The Alfa is absolutely correct to your description, and we would like to sincerely thank you for carrying out the sale process in such an efficient and correct manner; everything you promised was done, and it was delivered ahead of time, so that we could display it at the major Blenheim Classic Car day as we had hoped. We would certainly recommend you, and Waimak Classic Cars as excellent to deal with."Ash & Sandra, Motueka, New Zealand
Arguably, these cars were the best cars in the world at launch.
In 1979, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class was relaunched, and once again took a big technological leap from what came before. Aerodynamic styling penned by Bruno Sacco signalled a new look that would filter its way down the entire range, and showed that Mercedes-Benz was not about to lose its lead in its sector of the marketplace.
Original engine line-up spanned 2.8-litre and six-cylinders, as well as thet 3.8- and 5.0-litre V8s, all of which were very well established. By 1981, these engines were updated for improved fuel consumption.
