1999 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Grand Edition Description

A beautifully powerful sedan for your driving pleasure.
Fly in - drive home!
If you haven't driven one, you owe it to yourself to check these cars out!

As Edmunds describes them... "Sleek, smooth and bursting with power, the S-Class sedans are some of the most imposing cars on the road.
Big Mercedes sedans have always been the ultimate automobiles. They scream success, are engineered to be driven hard and keep the general public at bay. The S-Class projects confidence, prestige and a certain amount of cold indifference."
1 of only 600 made worldwide!
These cars were hand built in Germany and specially tested by Mercedes-Benz engineers.
"The Grand Edition was built to commemorate the end of the W140 production line and body style.These overbuilt cars are a true statement of Mercedes-Benz superiority. Finished in Obsidian Black with parchment leather interior and the interior/wood combination was exclusive to this model as were the illuminated door sills, special floor mats and 18" AMG Aero Monoblock sport wheels."
Mine is an wonderful, lower mile example of these cars. It is ingreat overall condition and mechanically excellent. In the interior, there is a wear mark on the driver's seat, the wood trim on the doors located around the power seat controls is cracked,and the ash tray is broken. Electronically, the soft touch closing door feature is a bit finicky and doesn't always function and neither do the headlight wipers. There are a couple of door dings on the exterior. Car is not perfect but it is certainly one you can be proud to own and drive about! Friends feel like royalty when you pick them up and drive them around in this!
This vehicle is incredible to take on longer trips or just drive in general. It is roomy and comfortable with greatamounts of leg room for all passengers. No more complaints from the back seat - you almost feel lost back there! The two paned glass makes it exceptionally quite, the fuel tank is huge, and the power on tap simply makes you sit back and relax, knowing it will perform when necessary!
This car eats up miles effortlessly and it is amazing, due to its road manners and quietness, how short the drive seems and how refreshed one still feels after a full day of driving. This is a solid well mannered vehicle.
I had the transmission and differential serviced at 84,684 miles and replaced the A/C compressor and receiver dryer as well. The 100K service was performed at 96,843. During that time, I had them replace the rear hydraulicshocks and the front shocks which was almost $2000 in parts alone - that won't be a concern again for some miles to come. 4 new Michelin Pilot Sports were installed and a 4 wheel alignment completed. No timing belt though - the Germans engineers went with timing chains - these cars are built!!!
You will be hard pressed to find a better maintained and more reliable car of thisstature, for this price. I drove from OKC to Houston, TX and back this past weekend - about 1,000 miles round trip. It performed flawlesslyand my fuel calculations indicated approximately 23 mpg. This is not the kind of car one regrets buying.
I've owned this Mercedes for the past 10 years or so and am saddened by the prospect of letting it go.However, I recently acquired a Buick GNX so my 74 Datsun (also advertised on Ebay), 2003 Audi S8, and this magnificent beast have to go. Too many mouths to feed!
This vehicle is being sold "As Is" with no warranties expressed or implied.Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have further questions.Car is driven, miles will be higher than indicated in listing.
