The TV tuner is conected to Playstation 2 leads & a PS2 power supply is also fitted . Kids can play games or watch a dvd whilst driver listens to satnav /cd changer or radio & can even use the phone without interupting the rear set up. .. well cool as the kids say .

This car can be anything you want... Daily commuter, motorway cruiser, or the ultimate sports saloon. These cars used to be the F1 pace car until the new SL55 arrived. With adaptive suspension switched on it transforms the ride from luxury comfortable saloon to a firm , taught sports saloon.

The car has been used daily and has never been on a track or abused in any way.

I still enjoy the car and have a grin from ear to ear each time I travel along an empty country road .

The bodywork has a couple of light scratches and stone chips, nothing serious. The front wheels need a refurb as there are some kerbing marks - again, nothing serious, but once attended to will bring the car back to showroom condition.

Flyer & shude has seen the car so know its a good un!

It drives, handles & brakes superbly - basically as steady as a rock even at 140mph (on a private road of course!)
feels like you are only doing about 80

Looking for serious offers around £ 25k

It's the Daddy!

I'll second that! 'Tis a lovely motor and has the setup I (meaning SWMBO!) want in the back of mine (rear monitor, PS2, TV, etc).

Sounds good, too :D

Not sure now as i cant find anything that beats it.

I'm not keen on the new E55 due the bad reports of electrical problems, plus I personally think the new 211 is a bit too plasticy inside.

I fancy an Aston Martin DB7 but not much room in the rear - same for the jag xkr . I dont like Porche or BMW, I've had a maserati 3200 (looks good, sounds good but cr*p to drive & unreliable) which leaves Audi I guess or maybe a CLK55 ..

I notice from your rolling road post that you already have an E55? you after a matching pair ? ;)

Still, I'm open to offers - no guarantee I will sell at any price though.

I've got an e55 estate and dont need the use of the extra space at the rear. I was thinking of either keeping it or changing it for a saloon one.

I honestly wish I could afford this. Awesome car, seen it once before and oggled till my eyes dropped out. Seriously hope it goes to a club member who I know will look after it as much as Steve has.
