I passed on a “once in a lifetime” Mercedes S600 V12 at my local CarMax at $30,998, and was agitated when it showed up in Boston a week later at $29,998. Thought I’ll never see a V12 Mercedes at that price again. This morning, a cheaper one pops, with lower miles even! It’s in Miami, and yes, the Carfax shows it backed into another car (common there?) and had some accident damage some time back. But at $23,998, and with another $3,500 you can get 100,000 miles of MaxCare bumper-to-bumper warranty, this thing is a steal. With 510hp, 612 ft-lbs of torque, night vision, every luxury feature including auto cruise control (Distronic Plus), AND the warranty, I can’t imagine there’s another 11 year old car that’s such a bargain. The CarMax link is here – if dead the car is being transferred, on hold, or sold.
