Lot 203 - 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC
|£21,000 - £26,000
The W126 was the flagship series for Mercedes-Benz at the time. Debuted in September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 range, the W126 was the second-generation to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 was initially offered with straight-six, V8, and turbo diesel engine saloon cars. In September 1981, a two-door coupé version of the W126 was introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, capacious, and powerful. The W126 S-Class sported a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company's line-up. The W126 line also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental restraint systems, seatbelt pre-tensioners and traction control system.
This Mercedes-Benz was first registered in Hong Kong on 8th April 1991 and imported into the UK in 2006. It has been registered with the DVLA and the index plate of H613 EGU was issued. These super stylish pillarless coupés were held in high esteem in the day and are now starting to gather pace within the classic car market. This example has covered 102,600Km which is a shade under 64,000 miles, barely run-in! Presenting in very good condition, with an excellent interior this SEC comes with its original toolkit and we are advised, drives very well with no known faults.
