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 line-up, 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 totalled 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 22nd May 2001, this S600 limousine has only had one owner from new. That owner being Roger Taylor an English musician, singer and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the drummer for the rock band Queen. The car presents very well in its original colour combination of black with black interior. It has been exceptionally well cared for and we are advised she drives very well with no known faults. A well stamped service book accompanies this Mercedes and judging by the picnic tables to the rear, we can only assume Mr. Taylor employed a chauffeur occasionally. Offered for sale without reserve, this S600 L with its interesting and highly esteemed owner, offers astonishing value given the original capital cost.
