vee 12 it looks good, and anything went wong is going to cost a fortune, worse are these newer ones everything is run by computer, even if u have deep pockets there're just not too many indie mech or shops out there to work on them for small price, and even if u dont mind to get your hands dirty.
Ins program they will make it a high deductible and low ceiling per yr. Only way is to buy a CPO re-furbished by MBdealers, but u will look at 2-3x retail price as they will carry a 2-3 yrs of extended W. But what will the deductible be?
In that rate u mind as well buy new, the lease payment will be so close anyways.
These V12 have steep depreciation, the 320 or 300 probably worth more than the V12 in 5-6yrs time. In reality the 300 doesnt save anymore gas than the 420 or 500.
I would stay away from them, more cyl= more maint cost, higher repair bill.
