The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a luxury saloon and was officially introduced in 1972 with the W116 S-Class which succeeded previous Mercedes-Benz models dating back to the mid-1950s. As the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the S-Class has debuted many of the company's latest innovations including drivetrain technologies, interior features and safety systems (such as seatbelt pre-tensioners). The W220 S-Class was completely restyled in 1999 with a body that was slightly smaller and lighter than its predecessor. Production of the W220 S-Class totaled 485,000 units; slightly more than the production totals of its predecessor. As with each new S-Class, the W220 brought in new innovations such as Airmatic air suspension and Active Ventilated Seats (which used miniature fans in the seats to move air through perforations).
Originally registered on 10th May, 2005, this S500 can only be described as ‘brand new’. It has only covered 7,225 miles and has been, garaged, chauffeur driven and polished on a regular basis. Our inspection confirmed the car to be totally original and, to be expected, it drove with no faults. The white paintwork does not have a mark on it and the interior is unblemished. The specification of an S500 is comprehensive and this car benefits from a whole host of options including electric memory seats, command system with navigation, electric rear roller blind, TV (front and rear) and the list goes on. Supplied with a V5 registration document, a full years MoT test certificate and some service history from Mercedes-Benz, this offers astonishing value for money given the cost when new.
