I was surprised to see this car sitting outside when I came to work this morning, Barolo Red is one of the rarest colors across the Mercedes-Benz product line, and very rare on the S class. Upon closer inspection I realized that this was a very special vehicle indeed. At almost $127,000 it is one of the most expensive S550 4matic vehicles in the entire United States.
I have included the original window sticker (below) for your reference. This is the most heavily equipped S class I have, personally, ever seen. It has all sorts of options, including the new “SPLITVIEW” screen in the front so the front seat passenger can watch a DVD from the dash mounted nav screen while not distracting the driver from the navigation. It’s got DISTRONIC PLUS, the Driver Assist package, and the awesome “Rear Seat Package”. I have always joked that if I had an S class I would have to hire a driver, as the back seat of the luxo barges is THE place to be.
