2005 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 Sport Auto


  • Well-equipped Mercedes SUV
  • ULEZ-friendly 
  • Desirable Sport trim
  • Drives well


With the imminent expansion of London’s ULEZ ultra low emissions zone and similar environmental control schemes developing across the UK, the market for Euro 4 standard petrol-engined SUVs is booming – perhaps not the message that policymakers want to hear, but facts are facts and large petrol-engined 4x4s largely fly under the radar of such schemes. 

The second-generation Mercedes-Benz ML 350 is one such vehicle – its diesel siblings might be chargeable under the ULEZ system but according to the data by which emissions standards are measured, the ML 350 is squeaky clean.

Here, then, is your chance to own a prestigious premium-brand SUV that gets around emissions charges. 

The second-generation ML is a nice car to drive – introduced in 2005, it is a far cry from its clunky predecessor. Refined, dynamically competent and extremely comfortable, it’s a proper Mercedes-Benz, served here in ML 350 Sport flavour, which means a 3.5-litre V6 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission.

  • No known mechanical faults


The second generation of ML was a massively improved car compared with its predecessor and is a sharp and lively machine to drive, especially with Mercedes-Benz’s 3.5-litre V6 under the bonnet – 232bhp, 0-60mph in a lively 8.1 seconds and seamless gear shifts from the excellent 7G-TRONIC gearbox make it relaxing around town yet eager and refined on the open road. 

It’s a great way of being able to still enjoy the comforts, accoutrements and presence of driving an SUV without being hit heavily by emissions charges.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
