Buying The Armored Mercedes From André Rieu?

Buying the armored Mercedes-Benz from André Rieu? by Bart Oostvogels | Autovisie

AMSTERDAM - André Rieu thinks it is time for a new car. Therefore he has placed his 2007 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG with long wheelbase up for sale on Marketplace (The Dutch version of E-Bay)

The S65 AMG with long wheelbase was one of the most expensive Mercedes cars on the Dutch market in 2007. Back then the car had a price tag of over 309,000 euro, without the armor. The asking price now stands at 129,000 euro (figuring a depreciation of 20,000 euro per year). Still a big sack of money, but you will also get the necessary extras. Rieu's car for example, is heavily armored. It has extra thick metal sheets and reinforced windows. The S65 AMG has to withstand a hail of bullets without any problems.

It Is a Monster
According to the ad, it is a "limousine with a monster under the hood". And they are not lying, because the S65 AMG features a 6.0 liter V12 gasoline engine with two turbochargers. Enough for 612 horsepower! The car can travel at more than 300 km/h (180mls/hour) and has a modest number of 109, 321 kilometers (67,928mls) on the odometer. If it could be sold for slightly less than listed, is not known. But André Rieu's CD "Greatest Hits" will definitely be included.

According to a spokesman André Rieu now drives a Tesla Model S. 
With which he is overjoyed.


Thanks to John for this and Translating it for us.

Cool. And Pierre put up the advert, that's cute I think. Good luck with the sale, but that shouldn't be a problem.

André veut changer sa voiture ? Pourquoi pas? Je lui souhaite de trouver un acheteur, afin qu'il puisse concrétiser son souhait. GOD BLESS YOU, André pour la belle musique et amitiés de France. Francine.
