What was the first car to be equipped with electronically controlled anti-lock brakes? Mercedes-Benz S-Class. How about the first car to be equipped with air bags? S-Class. Navigation? Again, the S-Class. The list goes on and on..

Mercedes-Benz is the go to brand for luxury and innovation. From SUV's, to convertibles and sedans, Mercedes is always near if not at the top of the charts for luxury, technology, and longevity. Now you can have your taste of German luxury with this immaculate Arctic White 518 horsepower SL63 AMG, all for the price of a moderately-equipped Honda Accord.

This 2008 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is fast. Like, stupidly fast. Thanks to its massive 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 which produces 518 bhp, and 465 lb-ft of torque, once it finds traction it will shove itself along to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. All of which happens while 5 people sit in immense climate controlled comfort.

Since this is an S-Class, you obviously get every feature known (and unknown to man previously) in the year of 2008. Some of which include 14-way messaging ventilated driver and passenger seats, a 14 speaker, 600 watt, Harmon/Kardon stereo with two subwoofers, voice activated navigation system, bluetooth, and air suspension, all controlled through an 8-inch LCD that can also display DVD's and live TV. But wait, I'm not done yet. This car also has a panoramic sunroof, a power opening and closing boot lid, radar guided cruise control, lane keep assist, blind spot assist, and life assist. I may be joking about that last one, though studies do show that people that drive S-Classes heart's do beat 5-6 times slower than driver's of other cars. So, if you drive one you'll live longer.

This car has done 128,000 miles, which is high for the year, but I happen to know that this car was owned by a Mercedes-Benz employee that just traded it in for an SL63, and has been meticulously maintained. It has never been in a wreck and is absolutely spotless inside and out. Also, the naturally aspirated engines tend to be more reliable compared to their turbo brothers. So, as long as you keep up on regular maintenance, I expect many trouble free miles for one lucky owner in their future.

Someone please come buy this thing before I do. It's fantastic.

NOTE: The dealer's website currently does not have any images of this vehicle up as they just took it in on trade. If you want any more photos I took just let me know and I can email them to you.
