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 2004 example was delivered new in Alberta, Canada, and eventually relocated to California in 2005 from which it was recently acquired by the seller. It was specified in the special order color of Designo Silver Metallic over a Gravel Nappa leather interior. Options include front multi-contour heated and ventilated seats featuring a massage function, soft-close doors, chestnut wood trim, a trunk-mounted 6-CD changer, and 4-zone climate control with rear air conditioning controls. Now showing just over 60k miles on the odometer, this well-kept 2004 S500 is being offered by its seller out of New York.
The exterior is finished in optional Designo Silver Metallic (029U) and includes bi-xenon headlights with level control and heated washers, auto-dimming power-folding mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, heat-insulating glass, and a polished front grille with matching trim lining bumpers, windows, door handles, and side molding. The seller reports the front passenger door has been refinished and notes very signs of minor wear to the exterior. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The factory chromed 17” 5-spoke wheels are mounted with older Michelin tires.
The interior features 14-way power-adjustable heated, ventilated and massaging front seats upholstered in Gravel Nappa leather with matching door panels and carpeting. Optional chestnut wood lines the dashboard, center stack, center console, and door panels as well as the steering wheel, gear selector, and grab handles. Optional equipment includes soft-close doors, 4-zone climate control with a rear-mounted control panel, and a 6-CD changer located in the trunk. Standard amenities consist of a power glass sunroof, power accessories, cruise control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, courtesy lights, electrostatic dust and pollen filter, a multifunction steering wheel, a 6.5” LCD screen with navigation, and a 12-speaker BOSE Cabin-Surround audio system.
The S500 is equipped with a 5.0L M113 V8 rated at 302 HP and 339 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by a 7-speed adaptive automatic transmission, which allows for acceleration from 0-60 MPH in 5.7 seconds with an electronically-limited top speed of 155 MPH. Performance features include an Airmatic with electronically controlled pneumatic spring-struts, front and rear anti-roll bars, the Adaptive Damping System, dual driver-selectable sport modes, automatic 4-wheel level control, automatic speed-sensitive lowering, speed-sensitive power steering, Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers, dual-piston sliding rear calipers, Brake Assist, and Electronic Brake Force Distribution. The CARFAX report shows a history of dealership and specialty shop maintenance, and the seller reports all fluids were replaced in preparation for the next owner.
