Seller offering a 2004 Mercedes Benz S55 AMG with 122,614 disclosed miles for $12,000. That’s a bit of a discount from the $106,500 MSRP for the base S55 14 years ago. Seller has owned the vehicle for a few years and says it is pretty clean for its age and runs, fits, and drives awesome – super reliable. Exterior black over black leather interior looks clean. No major dents or scratches in the pictures. Leather interior has expected cracking/wear for age.
The 2005 S55 is powered by a supercharged 5.4 V8 which produces 493-hp, 516 ft-lb of torque, 5-speed automatic transmission (with push button shifting on the steering wheel), and a 0-60 of 4.5 seconds. that was on par with a Porsche 911 in 2004. In the United States, the S55 was only sold in the long wheelbase form.
There is always a math involved with these heavily depreciated exotics. While the buy-in price is attainable, what is the cost of ownership? Unlike the S600 which was equipped with a V12, these supercharged V8’s are reportedly easier to maintain. This 2004 Mercedes Benz S55 AMG is for sale in Orrick, Missouri.
