2005 Mercedes-Benz (W164) ML500 AMG Edition



This 2005 Mercedes-Benz ML500 (W164) is an Australian-delivered second-generation example of Mercedes enduring SUV. It is powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine which sends 228kW/406Nm to all four wheels through a permanent 4Matic drivetrain system. The transmission in this car is a seven-speed automatic gearbox. This vehicle currently displays 180,177km on its odometer.



The Mercedes-Benz ML was the first luxury SUV produced by the German car maker and spurred a range of high-riding Benzes that dominate our roads today. Notwithstanding the G Wagon which was more utilitarian and military in its focus, the ML was an SUV that you could use everyday thanks to a luxurious ride quality, nice cabin appointments, and E-Class-levels of space on the inside. Where its predecessor was plagued by quality issues, the W164-generation made its debut in 2005 as an almost-entirely-new car with more sporting and aerodynamic looks. The ML500 is the most powerful car in the range aside from the ML63 AMG and manages a zero-to-100km/h run in 6.9 seconds. A special AMG Edition trim line was available which enhanced the character of the car with subtle design highlights and accent badging.



Finished in silver paintwork on the exterior and with black leather upholstery inside, this ML500 chooses a timeless specification. Being an AMG Edition this car’s spec list is long and includes pneumatic air suspension, adaptive dampers, and heated seats. The car also specifies woodgrain interior trim. It is fitted with a Becker GPS Bluetooth head unit. It rides on a set of 20-inch alloy Mercedes-Benz wheels which are wrapped in Continental tyres.



Built in Alabama, USA in early 2005, this car was complied and sold new in Australia in October 2005. The current owner acquired it in 2020 and spent some time servicing it back to its original and current condition. Most recent work includes the rectification of the air-conditioning, new air suspension, reconditioned transmission, and new adaptive rear shock absorbers. The seller notes everything works mechanically and it passed a roadworthy test in November 2021.



Exterior condition presents very well for a vehicle of its mileage. The silver paintwork displays in great order without obvious marking or scratching and no signs of body damage is observed. The chrome trimmings on the exterior show in polished condition and the car’s other trim items seem to be in good shape. Some minor curb rash damage appears on the wheels while the tyres retain a decent amount of tread.



The cabin of this ML500 shows a low level of wear and tear. The black leather upholstery presents very well for the vehicle’s mileage with no major cracks or wear visible. The dashboard and instrumentation looks to be in fine order without much wear observed, while the door cards and steering wheel show no marks or damage. Scuffing to the door sills is considered normal for the car’s age. The carpeting throughout the cabin appears clean and unmarked.
