5. Mercedes S600
Most car fans probably don’t know it, but they can own a V12, 6.0-liter, top of the line Mercedes S-Class for around $10,000. The Mercedes S600 in question was the W220 model, which they produced from 1999 to 2005. It was the biggest and most powerful factory offered model.
When new, it had a base price of over $100,000. But, it is interesting to see how depreciation has affected it over the years. Today, you can buy a S600 in decent shape for $10,000. The first thing you have to know is that maintenance, parts and labor are costly. This is the main reason why this great car costs less than a new Ford Fiesta.
Under the hood is the 6.0-liter V12 engine with 391 HP. It can propel this big, heavy sedan from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. Mercedes had to electronically limit its top speed, but you can remove the limiter to reach 190 mph. If you buy this model, you will get the finest materials and an unbelievable number of options and features. You’ll also get uncompromised performance and effortless cruising.
