Sunshine Coast's most expensive new car delivered
YOU'RE looking at the most expensive new vehicle ever sold by a luxury dealership on the Sunshine Coast.
That's the belief of Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast as a brand new Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet - with a recommended retail price of just under $580,000 - sits in its Maroochydore showroom ahead of delivery to its locally-based owners.
The exclusive luxury convertible, which costs more than the Sunshine Coast's median house price, was a custom order by the local buyers, who wished to remain anonymous.
They visited the Mercedes-AMG factory in Germany, selected a custom blue colour and were able to watch their new vehicle being built on the production line.
The S65 Cabriolet is powered by a mighty twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 handbuilt engine, which offers an incredible 463kW and 1000Nm of torque. The result is a drop-top capable of 100kmh in 4.1 seconds and on to 299kmh.
"It's so exciting to be able to sell such a prestigious vehicle to one of our clients right here on the Sunshine Coast," said General Sales Manager Zane Hau.
"It is the first AMG S65 Cabriolet to be sold by the dealership, and it's unlikely there would be a similar priced vehicle sold anywhere else on the Sunshine Coast."
What can't be disputed is that the delivery of this ultra-exclusive S65 Cabrio will be a welcome Christmas gift for both the new owners and the Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast dealership.
