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 29th June 2001 this Mercedes-Benz presents supremely well in black with beige leather trim. The S-Class range over cars are exceedingly well appointed and this is certainly no exception. Equipped with air conditioning, electric seats both front and rear, cruise control and parking aids. This low mileage example has led a very cosseted life, always being garaged and mostly chauffeur driven. Having travelled less than 1,200 miles per annum, it is not unreasonable to say this S600 is barely run-in. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate, this one owner Mercedes-Benz is described as being a joy to drive with no known faults.
