She was initially owned by Silicon Valley legendary entrepreneur and billionaire, Alejandro Zaffaroni.https://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/07/business/alejandro-zaffaroni-biotechnology-entrepreneur-dies-at-91.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alejandro_Zaffaroni https://news.stanford.edu/news/2014/march/alejandro-zaffaroni-obit-030314.html Dr. Zaffaroni was a serial inventor and a pioneer in the biotech world. It is against this backdrop that this car must be considered. One of the main issues many of these 600 Mercedes Benz offerings face as they advance in age is the neglect they receive by owners who cannot afford to care for them properly. This was clearly not the case with Dr. Zaffaroni's 600 SEL. Extensive records in the Mercedes Benz database reveal that this car was serviced often and as needed for preventative maintenance. Perhaps that is why nothing major has ever been done to this car. It resided in Dr. Zaffaroni's estate in Atherton, California in the garage from 1992 when it was new until after Dr. Zaffaroni's passing in 2014 when his widow decided to part with it. The original paint has benefitted immensely from it's long-term garaging and shows very well with few and minor

blemishes here and there. There is a crease to the sheet metal right above the front passenger side fender from where I suspect the garage door opening was misjudged. From certain angles, this is not noticeable at all, while from others and up close, it is. So I wanted to mention it to you although I do consider it to be minor. Also, I am told that the oil pressure needle needs a new sensor to work properly. Other than that, all works as it should, to the best of my knowledge. It is a very complex car. The car passed California emissions testing with flying colors.I have all original books, most of the keys (less one of the infrared remotes) and all repair records back to day one are available in the Mercedes Benz database. This car is way too over the top for me to recall every little thing.The transmission has been rebuilt by with full warranty. The reason that I want to sell it is that I want a newer S-Class. I am the third owner. I don't consider myself a collector, although this is my 5th Benz. A Mercedes-Benz enthusiast will appreciate it very much. It is very rare to find this particular car, which is considered by many Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts as the last "real Mercedes" that was built.
