Lot 219: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC
The Mercedes-Benz 500SEC was first introduced at the 1981 Frankfurt Motor Show where its fluent elegance caused a ripple of excitement amongst the traditional Mercedes buying public. Developed from the W126 saloon of the S Class series, the shape of this coupe showed clearly its heritage; however its front end had a lower sportier looking profile. Absolutely the best materials went into the production of this top line coupe which included all of safety demands of the S Class saloons as well as a generously comfortable arrangement of controls and excellent utilization of available space. The V8 light alloy fuel injected petrol engine was modified to achieve the highest possible torque at low engine speeds. This fine example presented here finished in diamond blue metallic has a full leather interior, electric sunroof, heated seats and air conditioning. Having covered 89,000 miles it comes with a full service history and a recent £3,000 bill from Mercedes-Benz main agents in Canterbury, Kent. Described as being in excellent condition by its forth owner, a collector of Mercedes-Benz, who is only selling to make way for a new model. These classic Mercedes coupes still remain popular, as they are robust and reliable while still giving you the look of a classic, but the performance and quality of a more modern car.
