This 2008 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG was sold new at Fletcher Jones Motorcars for approximately $198,000 in March 2008 and resided in Beverly Hills with its original owner until 2014. It now shows only 57k miles and is finished in Black (040) over Anthracite (511) exclusive Nappa leather. Features include Distronic PLUS radar cruise control, night view assist, bi-xenon headlights with active curvelight illumination, electric rear roller blind, Keyless-Go, park assist, and more. Power comes from a 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12 paired with a five-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission. This three-owner W221 AMG is now offered by the seller with a detailed Vehicle Master Inquiry (VMI), clean Carfax report, factory books & literature, and a clean Ohio title.
Compared to the standard W221 S-Class, the S65 AMG featured a lowered ride height, revised front and rear bumpers, side skirt extensions, unique exterior badging, and a quad-exit exhaust system. This example received a full detail and ceramic coating in preparation for the sale. The seller notes that paint appears to be original all around with no indications of prior paintwork.
Staggered 20″ AMG five-spoke wheels are mounted with new Continental ExtremeContact tires measuring 255/35 and 275/35 respectively, and showing 2021 date codes. AMG-modified Active Body Control (ABC) suspension was standard, along with a braking system utilizing uprated calipers and cross-drilled discs measuring 15.4″ up front and 14.4″ in the rear. The seller reports that the front brake pads and rotors were replaced approximately 700 miles ago along with all four tires.
The cabin is trimmed in S65-exclusive quilted Anthracite (511) Nappa leather, accented with hand-polished gloss burled walnut trim. Notable features include heated and ventilated multi-contour seats, navigation, a 14-speaker 600-watt Harman Kardon Logic7 sound system, an in-dash CD changer, Distronic PLUS radar cruise control, night view assist, bi-xenon headlights with active curvelight illumination, heat insulating & infrared reflecting safety glass all around, active dynamic front seats, panoramic glass sliding roof, multi-contour and climate controlled front and rear seats, electric rear roller blind, electric window blinds for the rear windows, park assist, rear-view camera, Keyless-Go, and more.
The heated multi-function steering wheel frames instrumentation consisting of a configurable LCD display, a 7k-rpm tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline, and gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital odometer indicates approximately 57,000 miles with under 2,500 of those miles being added by the seller.
The twin-turbocharged and intercooled 6.0-liter V12 was factory-rated at 604 horsepower at 4,800 rpm and 738 lb-ft of torque between 2,000-4,000 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed AMG Speedshift transmission. The engine is covered in an AMG-exclusive carbon fiber airbox showing the signature of the single-engine maker emblazoned on a plaque at the center of the airbox. The engine mounts, transmission mounts and alternator were replaced by Fletcher Jones approximately 20k miles ago.
This example is accompanied by a Vehicle Master Inquiry (VMI) from Mercedes-Benz detailing all service work performed on the vehicle since new at any Mercedes-Benz facility. The VMI is viewable in the gallery below. Service indicated on the attached Carfax shows regular dealer service history and linear mileage updates throughout. The report also indicates no accidents or other damage and only three-owners since new. This S65 AMG is now offered by the seller in Ohio with factory books & literature and a clean Ohio title.
