      Mercedes w140 s500/600 vs hummer h2 vs landrover range rover

      Hey guys this is your friendly nieghbourhood frankenstein

      I am ready to buy a luxury car financially but not mentally and that is where i need the evil help of my fellow gearheads.I want your 100% opinion,you can condemn my choice and say what you think.

      1: Mercedes benz w140... what i like about this car.

      This merc is the best merc to date with respect to built quality,double pane window glass,every feature,enough or more than adequate power,handling,braking and reasonable fuel effiency,and is available for peanuts.

      Negative points: What examples available are old but in superb condition
      Looks dated.

      2:Hummer h2 : This is got the best ,i repeat the best road presence,chicks will form ques to meet you,looks awesome ,people stop their cars and take a pic.

      Negative aspects:..costs more than a crore for good examples.
      Fuel effiency is 1km with ac so any trip i need minimun 40000 for fuel.
      It is out of production <company closed>
      Arka have given a bottoms up with respect to offroad capability in indian,especially south indian conditions.


      3: Land rover range rover... its got good snob value ,looks decent,diesel ,but its neither of the 2 and i cant dare take it to palar chalenge.

      Negative: TOO expensive for what you get ,i dont like it that much.



      So what do i do ,save a crore and get what i will get if i get a car for a crore: merc

      Get the hummer and get screwed later

      Buy the range rover vogue and be politically correct.

      The first thing i have to say is, List out your priorities. What exactly are you looking for?
      The cars shortlisted have no relation to each other. One is a 20+ year old sedan, the other a blinged out import and the third is a proper diesel SUV.

      For the price of the suv's, you can get enough 140's to drive a different one every day!

      Depends on what you're really really looking for actually! A sedan? A SUV? Or a bling ride from Dubai?

      Thank you jay d krraj and suhas.
      I am confused,if i get the s600 v12 i can plan many trips on the highway,hummer is the ultimate showoff machine ,but sadly fuel effiency is bad. I have no paticular needs and these cars are for time pass..

      o oh..not the best news to know. you know what you're gonna do with it and I'm guessing you've considered all this in the price.
