So, this video is absolutely up our start-finish straight, even if its subject is not one of the usual suspects. Filmed at the Targa High Country 2022, this is a compilation of clips of Geoff Nicholls and Ray Farrell in their absolutely epic sounding Mercedes 450SE. With the exception of the specially engineered 450SEL 6.6, a first-generation W116 S-Class has never sounded so good as it thunders (really the only appropriate term) through the beautiful mountain scenery of Tasmania. Almost as entertaining are the cheers and roars of approval from spectators audible after the Mercedes has monstered past.
