Despite weighing almost 1¾ tons, the 560 SEC raced to 100km/h (62mph) in only 7.2 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 156 mph, these figures being a considerable improvement over those of the 500 SEC. As befitted one of Mercedes-Benz's flagships, the 560 SEC came standard with a host of desirable features, while customers could choose from an equally lengthy list of options. Despite its elevated price, the 560 SEC would turn out to be the most popular of the W126 coupés. Surely destined to be classics of the future, 28,929 examples of this luxuriously equipped, limited edition model were made between 1985 and 1991.
This 1988 560 SEC Auto is described by the vendor as being in stunning condition. The car has only covered 58,000 miles from new, with 3 previous owners. The last two owners from 1994 until 2017 have been car collectors and its been hardly used all its life.
The car has just been serviced and given a new MOT. Everything is said to work, and the vendor states that there is no apparent rust or underseal to hide issues. The paint is as it was when it left the factory. Unfortunately there is very little paperwork as the third owner is deceased and most of it was lost, but the vendor has contacted other keepers and they have confirmed the mileage and the details of these owners are in the paperwork.
