V12 Aftermarket Warranty??

Does anyone know any US companies that will warranty a 2003 S600 with 40k miles that's been out of manufacturer warranty for years? I've Google'd 5 companies and they all do S430's and S500's but NONE of them will touch a 600. Any help is appreciated!

I don't know about your 600 and this company but I have one with them, in case you didn't find them using the Google search.

You will have serious trouble finding any warranty company who will touch that car with a 10 foot pole. It doesn't make any sense for them to cover it, because there is little to no money to be made on the V12.

mr.xpowerseller is correct. The 12 bangers all develop costly oil leaks, the oil cooler is terribly expensive and so are the coil packs but I don't know if those are covered so not worth mentioning. One of the MB techs I know said they all start leaking but always after the factory warranty has expired.
