A start up and walk around have been provided by the seller below.
Coined as the “Grand Sport Tourer” by Mercedes-Benz, the R-Class was a luxury entrant into the growing Minivan segment of the early 2000s which retained all of the usual creature comforts and high standards of your typical Mercedes-Benz while providing a form factor which was tailored to the needs of a growing family. Fitted with the larger 5.0L M113 V8, this R500 came highly optioned with heated front and second row seats, Harman Kardon sound, a panorama sunroof, and many additional luxuries along with the AMG bumpers from the ultra-rare R63 AMG. In combination with a handful of tasteful modifications, this W251 offers the perfect package for those looking for a seven seater that brings a unique touch of luxury. We love the R-Class’ position in today’s marketplace and encourage bargain-minded, forward-looking bidders to jump now before the rest of the pack catches on.
