I ADORE this car!!
The gear lights in the interior fail to work.
I used to drive a 740 Diesel, but this 760 GLE (built in 1990) is a world of difference and this only in the positive sense!!
The 760 GLE is a subtle car, but in a split second it can turn into a very powerful beast: one can drive this car in a stylish, female way or one can hit the floor and feel as if you're sitting in a testosterone-boosted sports car! No matter, if at high or low rounds per minute, the V6-engine makes a back-spine-chilling sound. Even when you're driving slowly, the automatic transmission works in such a way that it makes you feel that the engine is very powerful. This gives you a tremendous feeling of strength and male satisfaction!
Although it's a very big car the handling is amazingly easy and thanks to the very small turning circle parking is very comfortable, even in small parking places like underground garages or in narrow streets.
The interior is of such a high quality that even luxurious modern cars, like BMW and Mercedes, have a hard time tipping it. The door styles are covered in velvet and not in some plain plastic!!!
Disadvantage is the mileage: 11-16l per 100km depending on driving style, but you get a lot of luxury and curious looks of overtaken drivers for it!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
