ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Behold, a 2007 Mercedes-Benz S550 limousine. In its natural, resting state, this car is already pretty unique. A normal S-Class is already a long car, and then this one is much, much longer on account of the fact that it's a limousine. This alone would probably make it worthy of an Autotrader Find.

But this one has a trick up its sleeve: In back, instead of normal doors, it has ... gullwings. That's right, you rent this thing for $425 to bring you to the prom along with seven of your closest friends, who will eventually grow up to post angry political diatribes on Facebook -- and when you show up, you don't just get out. You open the doors and get out like a true celebrity, climbing out of a vehicle that looks like it may take flight.

Of course, this car's excitement goes far beyond its gullwing doors. In front, the seats are trimmed in some sort of faux (presumably) alligator skin, which actually looks surprisingly comfortable. Not that you'd care, because you'd be spending all your time in back, which is configured for partyin' it up: There's a bar, there are a bunch of seats, there are colored mood lights, there's something to simulate stars, and there's an unusual design on the floors. This is what people want when they buy a limousine.

If you're interested in this S-Class limo, it has a clean Carfax report showing several owners, all in California, where it probably chauffeured celebrities such as Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise and Bill Nye the Science Guy (or possibly it just chauffeured bachelorette parties, but Bill Nye is a better story). It's now offered for sale by Star Motor Sales near Chicago, and it's available with 78,000 miles for $59,985. That's big money for a 10-year-old S-Class, but then, this isn't just any 10-year-old S-Class, now is it? No, it isn't. Not with those gullwings.
