  • Mercedes always uses the halo S-Class model as a showcase for its latest technology and refinement and the latest W221 version of 2006, the first S-Class of the new millennium, was no exception
  • At launch, it was lauded by Autocar magazine as 'unquestionably the best car in its class and arguably the most complete road car in history'
  • The 388bhp, 5.5-litre V8 is mated to a 7-speed gearbox offering 0-62mph in just 5.6 seconds
  • A discreet, LWB (5.2m) Grand Saloon where build-quality, refinement and technology are paramount
  • Originally delivered to the UAE with delivery mileage only. An exciting and rare opportunity.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is amongst the world’s most revered luxury cars and it’s only really Rolls-Royce, Bentley and possibly Mercedes' own Maybach that could truly claim to trump it for reputation, but with those all being more than twice as expensive, that’s hardly surprising.

You could argue that what makes the S-Class special is its history but, in reality, it’s the fact that Mercedes uses the S-Class as a showcase for its latest technology that makes it stand out. With this incarnation of the S500, Mercedes paid obsessive attention to tranquillity whilst driving, giving a driving experience like no other. Never has a driver felt so remote from the outside world, and yet remained connected to the car to such a degree.

The 2006-2013 (W221) S-Class is no different. For example, it was available with infra-red night vision, seats that massage their occupants and a pre-collision assist system of a type that’s taken almost a decade to become commonplace on other cars.

After reports of dubious build quality linked to the previous S-Class, Mercedes went to town on, not only the design of the interior, but also its fit and finish. There was also a larger boot than before (think estate car space in a saloon body) and there’s enough room in the back seats to stretch out, particularly if you choose a long-wheelbase car.

This left-hand drive example was originally delivery new the UAE in 2012 and is showing delivery mileage only. An exciting and rare opportunity.
