There aren’t enough words to describe a Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG — both good and bad. You can probably guess the bad words, but I’m pretty high on these cars, especially the W221 chassis. I think the most impressive part is that you could have 604 horsepower and 738 ft-lb of torque in a normal four door sedan that can give you slow and gentle massage, all while being totally silent. Normally, to get that kind of power you would need to buy something Italian that is reliable and usable as a wild pack of possums. (Or maybe just buy a 911 Turbo.) Yes, you paid dearly for an S65 when new, over $200,000, but you got what you paid for. A vehicle with hyper car power that a grandmother could drive. Now that we are over a decade in to W221 S65 and they’ve reached Honda Accord levels of purchase price, is it worth rolling the dice on one? Maybe if you are a little crazy. Although this 2007 in Utah might just be the one to get.

To say you have to be careful when purchasing an S65 is a massive understatement. I’m not going to go into every possible weak spot on these cars, but on this specific car the seller has the Vehicle Master Inquiry from Mercedes that is over nine pages long. The font on those pages is pretty small too. Thankfully, everything seems to be fully sorted on this car and it looks to be a turn-key and go example. For being 11 years-old and having 115,000 miles, this one looks outstanding both inside and out. Even the paint has been fully corrected to a super high level. This is exactly the kind of car you want to buy because S65 ownership isn’t something you dip your toe into, you have to fully commit or it will be most certainly a bad experience.
The seller of this car is asking a reasonable $26,999, which isn’t the cheapest S65, but like I’ve said over and over, that isn’t the name of the game here. I’m willing to bet that with some fancy math, you can calculate how much cheaper it would be to just pay a little more up front than try to do the whole ”I bought these cheapest XXX in the country” that seems to be all the rage with the YouTubers right now. I hate to keep repeating myself, but if you really want a $220,000 experience for almost a tenth of the price, this wouldn’t be a bad way to go. Just make sure to be fully prepared when you are presented with a suspension error message on that fancy display.
Andrew, I agree with you – it seems there are already too many videos like “I bought the cheapest XXX” on YouTube. Like they don’t know other ways to attract audience. And suspension error message is just one of many possible issues. Maybe not the worst since owners have already dealt with ABS for a while and there is some experience shared online. I’ve watching C63 AMG group on Facebook. Even C63 people have many electrical stuff which they can’t even troubleshoot by themselves. And unfortunately a single error message may require to troubleshoot several components since the system is pretty complicated. If only Lexus came with similar cars. I guess x65 AMG cars are unique and I’m not sure if there is any competition. Thus I’d like to own one. Maybe later. Regarding this example mileage is my main concern. I suppose some expensive components may be already pretty worn. I guess it’s better to pay a bit over $30K and get car with VMI, service history and lower mileage.
