'A family bus like a Viano needs an estate agent to sell it, it's that big and versatile . . . The Viano turns every trip into an event - in a good way. Entering it is to step up into a brave, new world. Its vast windscreen bathes you in light while giving you almost Eddie Stobart-levels of forward vision. Completing the HGV-effect is a shift lever that sprouts conveniently from the fascia. In truth, you're probably sitting no higher than the driver of a Range Rover; after all, the Viano will fit most multi-storey car parks. But it's different and it's fun' (The Sunday Times, John Evans, 10th April 2014).
Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since new. Purchased from the Mercedes-Benz Retail Group (Ealing) for £44,021.50, its impressive specification included a fridge, COMAND Sat-Nav, rear electric Panoramic glass sunroof, rear air-conditioning, electrically adjustable front seats, electrically operated sliding doors, 18in alloys, Obsidian Black paintwork and 'Lugano' Orion Grey leather upholstery. A long wheelbase model in the more luxurious Ambiente trim, it is powered by a 3-litre V6 turbodiesel (rated at 224bhp / 324lbft) allied to automatic transmission. An HPi check reveals that (a) the MPV has had no former keepers and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. First MOT tested at 4,776 miles on May 1st 2015, the Viano is currently undergoing a cherished number plate transfer (the number visible in the photos 'XLL 6' does not form part of the sale but is available by separate negotiation). Now showing just over 5,000 miles, this imposing Mercedes-Benz comes with a book pack showing a service at 4,046 miles will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.
PLEASE NOTE: This lot possesses a MOT certificate valid until 27th November 2017.
PLEASE NOTE: This lot is not accompanied by a V5C Registration Document. It is currently undergoing a number plate transfer (the cherished registration 'XLL 6' is being retained) and a new V5C Registration Document will be forwarded to the new owner in due course.
