Introduction

Darren Rungasamy
Automotive Editor, Photographer and Consigner

The S-Class always has an air of prestige and presence, this early noughties example is no different.

For more than 50 years, the Mercedes-Benz S Class has been the brand's premier luxury saloon, with each iteration outperforming the previous in terms of comfort and refinement. The fourth-generation W220 first appeared in 1999 and visually offered a more rounded shape, with the usual focus on elegance and style. Kitted with a long list of modern safety features, the car was also fitted with 'Airmatic' suspension which at the time was unrivalled for comfort.

Along with its tasteful interior, dynamic driving ability and safety kit, the S Class is something of an ideal modern classic, particularly if you find a good solid example. And that's exactly what we have here. With just ~31,000 on the clock, this carefully owned example has had one lady owner since new and comes with full service history.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Darren after meeting Eulalee the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

A very comfortable car on the motorway, it just eats up the miles, it will be missed.

Eulalee has owned this car for 20 years, buying it from new. She had used the car on a regular basis, with occasional journeys on the motorway too but all in all, it has seen an astonishingly low mileage for a car like this over its 20 years.

With regular servicing and garage storage, the Mercedes has, not surprisingly been dependable. Unfortunately, the owner is selling the car due to a lack of recent use.

Angela, Eulalee's niece who is assisting her aunt with the sale will be happy to answer any questions you have about the car in the comments section below.

Exterior

Beautifully presented, the car has spent most of its life away from the elements.

Wheels and Tyres

The car is fitted with the correct sized Continental tyres, all are around 10 years old but still show a good amount of tread. The alloy wheels are in excellent condition, with no significant suggestions of kerb damage or wear.

Bodywork

The bodywork reflects the cars very low mileage, with no issues in terms of structural issues. The floorplan, engine bay, sills and inner wings are solid, with its jacking points intact.

There were no signs of corrosion noted on the external panels with the wings, arches and door bottoms all in remarkably solid condition. This can be attributed to its garage storage since new. There are a handful of minor dents observed, but can be easily treated. All doors open and close well, with the soft-close functions working as expected. The panel gaps and panel fits are excellent throughout.

Paint

Naturally, for a car that is 20 years old, there are a handful of minor blemishes noted on the car. The bonnet show a handful of minor chips and the top of the front wings have light scuffing, with the odd blemish noted on the bumpers. It wouldn't take much effort to get this car looking as new though.

Glass and Trim

The glass is in good condition throughout, with no issues regarding chips or laminate damage. The exterior trim chrome is good, with no significant issues noted on the side trim. The glass seals and door rubbers are intact.

Interior

A tasteful leather interior, a soothing and refined place to be, this cabin will help the miles pass by.

Seats and Carpets

The interior presentation is as expected very positive, with only the areas around the driver's seat being worth mentioning. The seat itself has a few minor marks but the seats are rip free and show very little in terms of wear. The carpets are good throughout and it's worth mentioning that the owner has cut and fitted house carpets on top of the original items, which has helped preserve the original mats.

Dashboard

The dashboard is in excellent condition, with just the area around the handbrake showing wear. The plastics, leather and veneer have been well looked after and are almost like new. The dials, controls and switches are all in good condition and everything with the exception of the air-con is functional. The headlining and door cards are clean with no damage.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel is good, with no significant signs of damage, the wheel controls show minor suggestions of wear. The gear shift is in excellent condition.

Mechanics

The S Class's reliability is legendary and its mechanical durability remains intact.

Engine and Gearbox

The car started up with no hesitation, the engine runs smoothly with no issues, leaks or unwanted noises. The gear shift is said to be seamless, with no problem with its operation. The exhaust is sound and functions without drama.

Suspension and Brakes

The condition of the suspension components and braking components are good, with no issues observed on the discs and pads. The car runs on air suspension and no issues have been reported, with the ride not emitting any clunks or squeaks.

The Drive

The rides well, with no issues observed in regards to its road-holding. The steering is direct and true, with no judder and the brakes function well with no noises.

Electrics and Other

The S Class is a fully equipped machine, with a huge array of electrical goodies - luckily all are said to be working. The windows, exterior mirror and sunroof all work with no straining to the motors. The electric seat functions are all said to work too.

The AC has never been used due to Eulalee's preferences but is reported to be working. It will need topping up after extended period of lack of use.

History and Paperwork

Its servicing and MOT's needs have been carried out over the years like clockwork, and the mileage for a car of this type is incredibly low.

Having been bought new by the current owner, the car has not seen much work other than regular servicing and MOT's, all you'd expect from a Mercedes-Benz of this era. It is said not to have suffered any mechanical failures with any potential issues addressed when the car has been serviced. The car comes with a very recent MOT and has just been serviced.

Do you know what the stain on the driver’s seat is and what caused the split in the plastic alongside?
