In July 1998, the W220 was introduced and, as with each new S-Class, it brought in innovations such as Airmatic air suspension and Active Ventilated Seats (which used miniature fans in the seats to move air through perforations). A navigation system with centre console-mounted screen display was introduced along with the COMAND input control system. Other options included keyless entry and ignition, a radar-controlled Distronic cruise control system and a cylinder shut-off system called Active Cylinder Control. The S65 AMG was introduced in 2003 and went on sale in 2004 as a 2005 model. Powered by a 6.0 L 612bhp, V12 twin turbo engine, the S65 was the most powerful S-Class, as well as the world's most powerful production saloon car. The S65 had a 0 to 60mph time of 4.2 seconds which was a conservative Mercedes-Benz estimate compared to owner-tested times of 3.8 seconds; the S65 could reach 100mph under 9 seconds.
This early S65 was first registered in April 2004 and has since had four previous keepers. Costing a whopping £142,000 new, this S65 is suitably 'loaded' with many extras including exclusive Nappa leather, infrared protective side and rear glass, heater and ventilated front and rear seats including dynamic massaging, distronic cruise control, electric sunblind's and climate control across all zones to name a few. Presented in brilliant silver with graphite Nappa leather with anthracite, it has covered a mere 75,493 miles. This opulent 12 cylinder Bi-Turbo can still embarrass many supercars today, all whilst the passengers enjoy a massage from their seats! A valid MoT test certificate is present along with a V5 Registration document.
