This 2005 Mercedes-Benz E500 4Matic Wagon is finished in Bordeaux Red Metallic (567) over a Beige (835) Nappa leather interior and powered by a 5.0-liter M113 V8 paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with SpeedShift. This S211 wagon was originally delivered to Mercedes-Benz of Arlington, VA in October 2004 with an MSRP of $67,570 according to the original window sticker. Equipment on this example includes a factory Airmatic suspension, power-adjustable heated seats, heated steering wheel, Entertainment Package, Heating Package, Memory package, four-zone automatic climate control, through-loading feature, left & right rear door sunblinds, an electric/tilt sunroof, 6-disc CD changer, Harman Kardon stereo, COMAND w/navigation, power cargo cover, retractable cargo net/dog barrier, power rear liftgate, and a rear-facing third-row bench seat. This S211 has a custom rear exhaust from MA-Motorsport and the OEM rear mufflers have been removed. Recent service includes replacement of the SBC pump, fuel tank, front driveshaft, power steering pump, both batteries, new rear OEM brakes and rotors, new OEM wheels, and new Continental tires. The car shows 126k miles from new and is now offered with a clean Carfax report, factory literature, service records, two keys, original window sticker and a clean Maryland title.
The exterior is finished in a rare shade of Bordeaux Red Metallic (567). Features include quad headlights, fog lights, a glass sunroof, roof side rails, and a rear wiper. No accidents or other damage are listed on the included Carfax report and paint is believed to be original. Rock chips, dings and other imperfections are highlighted with specificity in the gallery including scrape on the rear passenger corner and a small crack in the rear passenger tail light lens. The sunroof was resealed in 2021 and does not leak according to the seller.
The car was fitted with a new set of OEM multi-spoke wheels with new Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06 PLUS XL Tires in 2021. The car is equipped with an Adaptive Damping System and a self-leveling Airmatic suspension which can be raised or lowered 2+ inches from inside the cabin. The airmatic compressor filter, valve block, front driveshaft, SBC pump and power steering pump were replaced in 2021-22 along with the rear brake rotors and pads. The rear passenger air spring reportedly has a slow leak when sitting for extended periods and the seller notes that replacement of the rear shocks/dampeners should be completed in the near future. The suspension can be further tuned to Sport 1 or Sport 2 settings which lowers the car between .6 and .8 inches while stiffening the suspension and steering for spirited driving.
The interior is trimmed in Beige (835) Nappa leather with burl wood accents on the dashboard, steering wheel, center console, and doors. Interior amenities include power-adjustable heated seats with memory, heated steering wheel, through-loading feature, left & right rear door sunblinds, 6-disc CD changer, Harman Kardon stereo system, COMAND w/navigation, heated screen washer system, heated rear glass, automatic/power-operated cargo cover, retractable cargo net/dog barrier, power rear liftgate, and a rear-facing third-row bench seat and four-zone automatic climate control. The seller reports that the vanity mirror flap on the driver's visor is broken and one of the burl wood trim tabs on the center console has come off (but is included). The HVAC blower reportedly squeaks slightly under lower speed operation.
The multi-function steering wheel fronts factory instrumentation including an analog clock, a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and digital gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The dashboard houses the climate controls, an infotainment screen, a 6-disc CD changer, a pop-out storage cubby, and a lockable glovebox. The digital odometer shows approximately 126k miles since new.
The cargo area includes the through-loading feature and can be accessed via a power tailgate and contains an automatic/power-operated cargo cover, retractable cargo net/pet barrier, and hideaway rear-facing third row seats with cupholder and headrest.
The 5.0-liter M113 V8 is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with SpeedShift as well as 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Power was rated at 302 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque when new. The car features a custom rear exhaust system and the rear OEM mufflers have been removed. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery below.
