A driving video has been provided by the seller below.
The W221 harkened in a new era of S-Class dominance with reliability, luxury, and cross-platform competition that rivaled the best of the US, EU and Japan. The S65, epitomizing the height of luxury, technological capability, and performance, excelled in every single competitive class while also providing a seamlessly beautiful package to deliver the deceptive device. Armed with nearly 800 ft-lbs of torque and every conceivable option available for the 2010's, this vehicle exceeded the expectations of not only cultivated car buyers, but also critics of the time. With night vision, distronic radar cruise and planet-altering torque, this ultra-flagship model of the big-body Benz was a highlight that still demands top attention (and dollars) from collectors who understand that market depreciation does not necessarily equal devaluation. This S65 AMG is particularly special as a Designo Graphite Edition featuring special paint and a Designo two-tone Corteccia and Charcoal interior. To top that, this example has only 38k miles from one previous owner and the Designo Matte Natural Wood adds the finishing touches. As if S65 ownership wasn't exclusive enough, this particular car takes it to another level.
