This 2002 Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG was sold new in October 2001 and driven for a year in California before being offered by the Mercedes-Benz dealer in Honolulu, Hawaii as a Certified Pre-Owned example. The ML remained in Hawaii through 2017 when it was brought back to California and then purchased by the current owner and seller Maryland in 2021. This AMG W163 is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic (744) over Black Exclusive leather (561A) and is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 driving all four wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes facelift-specific xenon headlamps behind projector lenses, 18″ AMG wheels, the original AMG sculpted body kit, power-adjustable heated front seats, cruise control, navigation, Bose audio, and a lockable safe box located beneath the front passenger seat. The seller has included $13k of records and receipts showing regular service under ownership. This ML55 AMG shows 36k miles and is now offered by the seller with a spare tire and cover, rear cargo cover, factory literature, two keys with a safe box key, service records, a recent Carfax report, and a clean Maryland title.
