About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC
Smoke Silver Metallic (702U) with Beige Leather (265)
The SEC was the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz range, topped by the 5.6 litre V8 powered 560 SEC. To put it simply, in 1989 this would have been the ultimate automotive status symbol.
This 560 SEC boasted a list price when new (with options) of £64,398. If we adjust that figure for inflation and translate it into ‘2019 Money’ we come out with a figure of £169,874. Not only was this car eye-wateringly expensive when new, it was also more expensive than a Ferrari Testarossa of the same year.
Being the flagship of the range meant there weren’t too many boxes to tick when ordering a 560 SEC from the showroom. This car has Acceleration Skid Control which would have added more than £5,000 to the list price in today’s money.
Coming from an astute collector, this car has covered just 63,000 careful miles and is presented in showroom condition throughout.
An opportunity for a new owner to acquire possibly the best 560 SEC currently available.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
