If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Spotted on Trade Me: 2003 Mercedes-Benz S600 V12 Bi-Turbo

This is the 493hp, 800nm luxurious space ship you have been looking for. Weighing in at over two tonnes it still manages 0-100 kph in under 4.8 seconds. This example looks particularly well looked after and is New Zealand new with low mileage. Both of those are pretty rare for a car like this down here. At $24,900 NZD it has depreciated roughly $325,100 in 11 years. I’m sure you’d get a hefty bill when one of the many techno gadgets break but providing the car has been looked after and regularly serviced you might get away pretty lightly. And if you don’t, at least you’d have fun while burning money. And rubber. Link to auction here.


Trade Me is the New Zealand version of eBay/Craigslist. I will aim to post up auctions for any interesting and rare cars that we get in this little corner of the world known as New Zealand.
