2012 Mercedes-Benz E550
Click on image for Fullscreen
This is a remarkably rare car; a late E550 with the 4.7-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. This example has covered just 44k miles from new backed up by a full service history.
This is not an AMG car, it is not loud and it doesn’t have hard suspension. It is, however, an extremely fast, discreet luxury saloon. The specification is huge, with air suspension, key-less go, automatic high-beam control, heated/memory sports seats, active lane assist, adaptive cruise, nav, rear blinds and much more. All listed below.
Updated sat nav with the latest mapping.
We have just brought this car into the UK from the kind, salt-free climate of Japan. It has evidently been garaged all its life as its condition is quite incredible.
Full service history with 10 services recorded, the last having been completed recently. Two keys.
ULEZ compliant but only £325 per annum road tax.
The bodywork and interior are absolutely unmarked. The wheels pristine and wear matching premium tyres all round. As it has come from Japan, the underside is in astonishing condition. The whole car appears as if it left the factory 3 months ago rather than 11 years.
As you might it expect it drives beautifully – smooth, quiet and refined, but absolutely blistering performance on demand.
These late E550s are very rare cars in the UK and this example is surely the best available.
