The W220 S-Class, launched in 1998, brought the executive-level Mercedes firmly up-to date and re-established itself as the leader and innovator in the luxury car market. Featuring a range of petrol, diesel and supercharged petrol engines, the new vehicle - which continued the design theme set by the A-Class - stood out amongst its competitors.
Generously equipped as standard, 'MB04 KWC' was ordered by its one private recorded keeper with the following desirable extras:
- 6-way adjustable electric heated seats
- 'Appearance Pack' with 5-spoke alloy wheels
- COMAND Satellite Navigation
- high-gloss burr-walnut trim
- Parktronic front & rear visual and audio parking sensors
- Mercedes Nokia Mobile Telephone
- CD auto-changer
- Glass electric sunroof
The accompanying original sales invoice shows the vehicle cost £49000 even after the owner had negotiated his discount! During 12 years' careful ownership, the 204hp luxury saloon has averaged around 32 mpg! Because the S-Class is over 10 years old some classic car insurers are already offering to cover it which could result in an annual premium of £100 per year depending upon mileage and personal circumstances. Though, even regular policy quotes for it can be negotiated down to £187 per year. Meticulously maintained on a bi-annual basis by Mercedes-Benz and independent local Mercedes specialists, the vehicle can only be described as outstanding having covered a remarkable 34,000 warranted miles, from new. This is a truly rare opportunity to own what is probably one of the best examples of an original, unmolested and cherished vehicle in regular service by its doting keeper until illness has forced this most reluctant of sales. Offered with MOT, recently serviced and riding on matching Michelin Sport tyres, what better way of driving home in pure opulence could one want?
