The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a luxury saloon and was officially introduced in 1972 succeeding 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. 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).
This lovely left hand drive example from Japan is presented in silver with black leather interior which looks amazing considering it’s 22 years old! This luxurious saloon comes with electric sunroof, electric heated memory seats to the front, cruise control, electric steering column, climate control and its Japanese service stickers can still be seen on the vehicle. This is a wonderful example in great condition throughout which belies its age and powered by the smooth five litre V8, it really is a superb luxury saloon.
