Depreciated Luxury: 2001 Mercedes Benz S500 AMG Sport W220

Back before Mercedes-Benz plastered AMG stickers (and hefty price premiums) on everything that moves (AMG Golf carts, AMG Barbie Benz, AMG toothbrush...etc) it offered an all or nothing proposition for the big Benzes, until Y2K when it started offered "AMG Sport Package" as an option to the get some of insane acceleration of the AMG S55 with a price tag of only $90k...but that same car costs less than the sport package (MSRP $4900) on the used market today.  Find this 2001 Mercedes Benz S500 AMG Sport offered for $4,500 in Laguna Hills, CA via craigslist.

  1. I would love that car, especially if there is no rust on AMG vehicles? and the AC works as well as on American cars. Would need to get rid of the hydraulic suspension and revert to coil over springs and shocks (KYB OK).

  2. S500, the only thing better with that engine would be in wagon form -

  3. Small dealer; maybe 'too good to be true' might just be. I mean this is just
    too good. Almost $2904able.

  4. Took me time to understand all of the comments, but I seriously enjoyed the write-up. It proved being really helpful to me and Im positive to all of the commenters right here! Its constantly nice when you can not only be informed, but also entertained! I am certain you had enjoyable writing this write-up. limo hire perth
