Representing the fourth generation of the S-Class, the W220 ushered in the new millennium for Mercedes-Benz’s flagship sedan, introducing new technology and a new design language that would influence their models for years to come. This 2000 S430 was delivered new to Crater Lake Motors of Medford, Oregon, ordered in the rarely seen color of Horizon Blue over an Ash leather interior, and was optioned with heated rear seats, soft-close doors, and a rear power sunshade. Showing approximately 81k miles on the odometer, this S430 is now being offered at auction at no reserve by the seller based out of California.
The exterior is finished in Horizon Blue (347) a classic Mercedes-Benz color first used in the 1970s. Equipment includes automatic headlamps, intermittent windshield wipers with rain sensors, a heated windshield-washer system, auto-dimming side mirrors with integrated turn signals, and a polished front grille with matching trim lining the bumpers, windows, door handles, and side molding. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The factory 16” wheels are mounted with Advanta ER-700 tires.
The interior features 14-way heated and power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support upholstered in Ash leather with matching door panels and carpeting. Calyptus wood trim lines the dashboard, center stack, center console, and door panels. Amenities include automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, cruise control, a Bose premium sound system, a COMAND navigation/audio display, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, a power sliding sunroof, and a trip computer. Additional options include heated rear seats and a power rear sun shade. The seller reports some signs minor of wear throughout the interior from age.
The S430 is powered by a 4.3L SOHC 24-valve M113 V8 that was factory rated at 275 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission. Performance features include an Airmatic suspension with Adaptive Dampening (ADS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with Auto Slip Control (ASR), and power 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and Brake Assist. The seller reports the mirror turn indicator warning light is illuminated.
