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. 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 in 1999, this S500 Long Wheelbase has only covered 42,000 miles. Presented in Alabaster White paintwork with a Nappa leather interior. The specification of an S500 is comprehensive and this car benefits from a whole host of options including electric memory seats (front and rear), command system with navigation and cruise control to name but a few. Owned by our vendor since 2015, this example is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until January 2024. This car offers astonishing value for money given the cost when new and the mileage.
