The Mercedes-Benz S-Class remains the ultra-luxury car against which other ultra-luxury aspirants are judged and this 2005 S55 AMG is no exception. The look is unmistakably Mercedes, with a dignity of design appropriate for a technological flagship that exudes luxury, refinement, and class. As examples aged and technology advanced, many of these W220 flagships became obsolete to many drivers and were replaced with newer models. Very few exist in this condition and even fewer with so little mileage are offered for sale. It's also worth noting this is a later model year which are the most desirable over the earlier year models. These cars have moved on from status symbols to be timeless future classics for enthusiasts who enjoy a blown V8, a cloud-like ride, and the exclusivity of a car rarely seen in traffic today.
