For more than half a century the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been the pinnacle of luxury, safety, status, and ingenuity as the benchmark by which every other manufacturer measures their flagship sedans. Every iteration of the S-Class receives notable improvements over the prior generations and even as the new models are released, these W222 chassis cars make it seem as though perfection has already been achieved. Facts aside, this specific S550 is an absolute winner with its one owner history, low miles and absolutely stunning (and rare) designo color combination. There's certain examples to avoid and certain examples to buy... this one falls in the buy column. To quote Scorsese: “Buy this thing and you’ll be upper class by about Tuesday…”
