FS: S600 V12 TT W221 Designo, Records from new, original paint, no snow/salt use
The car is auctioned on ebay - let's see how it goes. Please contact me with any questions.
A rare S600 with no accidents, original paint on all panels as verified with digital paint thickness gauge, full service records including documented meticulous Mercedes dealership service for the first ~95,000 miles at Fletcher Jones in Fremont CA.
Absolutely no smoking and no fragrances used - still original, strong leather smell. Only mature, adult use.
Only CA and FL use without any snow/salt exposure, no rust.
Due to it's condition and history the car will be a best fit for a knowledgeable Mercedes V12 enthusiast or collector, who can fully appreciate it.
All the effortless power, smoothness, luxury and countless options of those cars are well known to prospective buyers. A few unique things to mention are beautiful Designo paint (gray in shade, sparkling multicolor - mostly green hue in sunshine) with high quality Designo leather, matte wood and Alcantara interior. A huge quality, look and feel difference comparing to a standard S600 interior (not to mention the base S550 interior). Bluetooth and iPhone cable integration packages, Night Vision, Panoramic Roof, Keyless Go, 4 zone climate control, dynamic seats with massage/heating/cooling, reclining rear seats, optional 19" wheels etc etc.
All power shades, windows, panoramic roof shades and sun roof opening work flawlessly without common pano grinding noises which have been addressed with a repair and a design upgrade.
I've made extensive efforts to address typical issues of S600, if done at a dealer the cost would be well over $10,000 (which a buyer of a similar car without those issues already addressed would be expected to pay). Some include:
Both ignition cassettes and ignition voltage regulator fully rebuilt (all cylinders) by Clark of V12icpack, no misfire problems caused by original or used parts
24 spark plugs and brand new plug insulators/boots
Both turbocharges fixed with new coolant seals
Engine and transmission mounts replaced with original OEM parts
Sticky steering wheel buttons fixed
New front (May 2017) and rear (Nov 2018) batteries
Frequent oil changes, including Mobil 1 with original Mercedes filter just performed, recent front tires, rotors and pads.
All factory books in the original holder, Mercedes audio demo CD and 2 working keys are also included.
I have owned this car since 2015. According to detailed service records the car has had only one previous owner (listed in Carfax/Autocheck as 3 different ownerships due to ownership type changes). The documentation indicates that this previous (original) owner was actually a multi billionaire CEO, who has also owned an Indy 500 team. So it appears that there were sufficient financial resources to properly service, maintain and garage the car :-)
