…Or 5 years…
Based on a recent study, the S-Class Mercedes Benz will be worth roughly 16% of it’s original purchase price after 5 years. Specifically the S65.
A mind boggling 738 lb-ft. of torque and 604 horsepower from a turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine provides plenty of punch. The AMG-assembled V12 is so torquey that Mercedes beefy 7 speed Auto box wasn’t holding up, so a bulletproof 5 speed unit was used.
Couple that with endless features, the kind you’ll see on ‘normal’ cars in 10 years or so (Thanks TG for that statement!), incredible comfort, serious style, and the ability to whisk 5 adults and luggage away at great speed, and you have yourself a $200,000 car…..That in 5 years you can pick up for about $35,000.
We all know that cars tend to lose value over time, but some are far worse than others. If you’re shopping for something serious, buying a car that is a bit older, with a good, clean maintenance history, and perhaps the option for some extended factory or aftermarket warranty is the only way to go.
