The stunning paintwork simply gleams with a bright gloss shine and superb finish to really enhance the imposing presence of this executive saloon. Only very light blemishes can be seen upon close inspection, and worthy of mention are small touched in loading marks to the rear bumper and a very light paint rub to the nearside rear corner. The beautifully made trim sections, glass lights and badges are pristine. The striking front grille and prominent Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star remind you of the makers legacy. The original supplying Mercedes Benz dealer number plates and rear screen sticker remain fitted. Truly representative of a one owner, garaged and cossetted example having covered just 44,074 miles from new, this example is far superior to the usual offerings and one for future preservation.
Luxury and opulence in abundance, a cabin space to overwhelm and delight! Trimmed in beautiful factory optional MB Lex in Orion Grey Leather, (Code 158), the upholstery is spotlessly clean, commensurate with the low mileage covered. The ergonomically designed seats are well preserved and supremely comfortable with the desirable and optional electric memory heated seats. All bolsters are firm and fully intact, and only light stretching to the driver’s seat base is visible. All burr walnut cappings and other leather trim sections are pristine, as is the Orion Grey headlining. The functions and controls operate exactly as they should including the perfect LCD display for the trip computer, clock and outside temperature which often fails. Inside the immaculate boot area is the original warning triangle, complete tool roll, jack and unopened first aid kit, and even factory build stickers and the dealer supplied circular wheel changing card have been preserved! Impeccable comfort to all occupants with Mercedes-Benz build quality assured.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The six-cylinder Mercedes V-engine of 2597cc displacement produces 170bhp at 5500rpm and 240Nm torque at 4500rpm to achieve a top speed of 139mph and 0-62 in just 9.3 seconds, impressive for a large executive machine. The exceptionally clean engine bay remains exactly as Mercedes Benz intended and displays factory plates, stickers and panel stampings. The 5-speed automatic transmission with Speedtronic cruise control offers effortless cruising capabilities.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory standard 16” eleven spoke style light alloy wheels are in excellent order with only very light scratches visible. Factory correct matching Pirelli P6000 215/55 R16 tyres are fitted all round, including the spare which has the coloured banding still visible. The anti-lock braking system with Brake Assist (BAS) offers hugely positive stopping power to install complete peace of mind.
