2006 Mercedes-Benz S500L (W221)

Thumping 5.5-litre V8 S-class here in LWB form; husband and wife owned and showing just 9,754 miles - find another?

Ok, so perhaps not the most obvious Modern Classic, but with only two owners from new (husband and wife) and showing just 9,754 miles from new, its really rather special.

Finished in Obsidian Black and sitting on its original 18inch 9-spoke alloy wheels, this December 2006 example looks almost like its driven straight out of some Canary Wharf HQ or Diplomatic/Embassy role such is the presence of this flagship Mercedes motorcar.

In 385bhp 5.5 litre V8 S500L guise, the car is in long-wheel base format and as such features an even more extensive options list including (but not limited to) double glazing, 7-speed automatic transmission, soft-close, automatic open/close boot, heated electric front memory seats, sat nav, adjustable infotainment screen, adaptive cruise control, sunroof, digital climate control with AC, rear window blind, walnut trim, half timbered steering wheel, electric folding mirrors, head light wash, reverse camera, parking sensors, air suspension, automatic lights and wipers.

Rear passengers in this example can also indulge in individually heated and electrically controlled reclining seats making rear travel a cinch, and a cosseting one at that with more legroom than standard and a beautifully leather trimmed interior to relax and while away the miles.

Within the history file, we find the V5C, considerable owner’s pack with manuals and duplicate service book showing the car was supplied by Mercedes Benz of Chelsea who look to have maintained the car throughout its stamped history, the last of the 7 stamps was in October 2015 at 6,583 miles. In addition, the car has a current MOT valid until July 2022 with 4 minor advisories for tyres and brake pads on the rear.

Furthermore, we also see a more recent service invoice from Kensington Autocare for a service and machine polish in June 2019 at 8,612 miles at a cost of £1680 and VOSA MOT history print-out.

Ready to be enjoyed, this ultra-low mileage W221 series S500L is a huge amount of car, status and luxury for the estimate suggested and it comes with the private plate R500DAL so the neighbours wont know how old it is.
