Overview

, a 1989 European Mercedes 560 sec in left hand drive. 45,000km from new (original, certified) and is as close to a brand new 560 sec as one will ever find. This is probably the best of its kind in the world. Full 300bhp version only sold new in Europe. The most powerful and most desirable version. This is not a Japanese or American detuned import. This was the car that all formula 1 drivers of the 1980`s owned privately: Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell all owned a 560 sec. For a reason: it was the best, most over engineered road car of the time. Even today, the level of refinement of this 28 year old car would put to shame many of its contemporaries. It remains a hugely accomplished GT car capable of 160mph+ in total comfort. Smoke silver, black leather. It had one private owner before me. The interior is remarkable and the black leather still retains its factory matt sheen. The woods have been refurbished by Silvercrest and are better than new. Everything works as it should including belt arms, clock, aircon. The headlining is exceptional too with none of the sagging found in other cars. All original papers and documents are present with the car. All work and servicing is up to date. The self leveling suspension works as it should. The car still retains its factory wax in the engine bay as well as the factory color markings under the chassis. There is no corrosion on the car. I fitted a more modern Becker head-unit (the same brand used by Mercedes when new) with an ipod connection. The original Becker unit comes with the car. Other small details: the spare wheel in the boot has never been used and retains its original tyre. The tool kit is present and correct. All glass around the car including the windscreen is original with the Mercedes branding proving originality. It has had an expensive service last month (June/July 2018) to ensure that everything works perfectly: a/c overhauled, wheels refinished, new bolts, new michelin tyres, wheel alignment and correct leveling`, new clock (hard to find), new front shock absorbers, new engine mounts and many other tiny details making this car unique. The invoice is above £7,000. Hundreds of pictures of this car are available inside, outside and underneath. This is the ultimate 560sec that will grace any collection. Visible in the London and Surrey area.
