2002 S320 for sale here in Newcastle I drove past the car yesterday which was parked out the front of the MBCCC Presidentís house.

I did notice the suspension is sitting quite low or sagged!

The body on that car looks like it was driven to the local supermarket every week and parked by feel.

Sorry Tim but it almost looks like a parts car due to current value off W220 getting boot repaired and suspension could be more than car is worth in good condition . As boot impact could mean damaged boot floor

Styria 2008 means it doesn't have earlier brake issues and 5.5 litre M273 is 4 valve engine with 60kw more than earlier M113 . it also has distronic radar

Question for Brian, why is this not valued any more than a Regular Bentley Mark VI? I know the Mark VI is not the most desirable Bentley, but my assumption would be a coachbuilt model from a reputable coachbuilder would have been worth more. This body looks much nicer than the normal MK VI body.

M273 engine OK, but may have known sprocket wheel problems.
Mercedes had to deal with a court case because of this.
M273 a much updated development on the M113 design, with 4 camshafts (not 2) and variable valve timing, a bit more economical and powerful.

I am looking for a C209 coupe CLK500 , with a 5.5 M273 engine, but it HAS to have an engine number of more than #8612, to avoid the sprocket wheel problem, but that as right at the end of the C209 production in 2009.
Could very well turn out to be a futile search.
Although CLK 500's with the 5.5 litre M273 engine were produced in 2009, I don't think that any were sent to Australia in 2009 or 2010.

I would agree with you. I would have though such would be worth more. A very good standard-steel bodied MkVI would bring around $60,000 plus. A coach-built equivalent may bring a little more.
Hopefully this is not a sign of a collapsing market?
Regards,
Brian

I agree with C107 and Benzboy but recently auction prices have been down with cars failing to reach reserve . It appears a nice driver though. As for the C209 and M273 most would have been replaced with sprocket issues by now it is over 10 years ago . Hopefully car you look at has service paperwork listing this job SEL 69L.

I don't typically follow MkVI values as the model doesn't have as much appeal for me as the earlier (Derby) or later (S series) models. However, on carsales right now there are:

https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...16486939/?Cr=3

$40k

https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...-5780654/?Cr=4

$55k but butchered with a ford 4.1 liter

https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...16481116/?Cr=5

$60k.


Not sure what that represents, but I will say the bottom car has been for sale for many many months.

Small sample size, but the feeling I am getting is the market has probably softened.

Probably the market has softened. I am not a fan of the MKVI - especially the 4 1/4 litre. The R which followed is better but still not as desirable as an S.
Having said that, really good MKVIs usually change hands within the club and at a price that reflects their condition.
I had the opportunity recently to drive one with 30,000 original miles on it and it was significantly superior to any other I have driven. That makes you wonder how good some restorations really are.
Regards,
Brian

Don't park it outside in the rain or under a sprinkler. With a bent boot lid like that it'll fill up with water.
