  • One owner from new, purchased new by the vendor while living in America
  • 104,000 miles from new
  • Finished in Midnight Blue paintwork with Grey leather interior

Supplanting the 500SEC as flagship of the Mercedes-Benz C126 range, the 560SEC was launched at the September 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show. Sharing the same basic M117 engine architecture as its lesser sibling, the new model employed a longer stroke and Bosch KE 111 Jetronic ignition. Credited with some 300bhp and 325lbft of torque in non-catalyst guise, the 560SEC boasted four-speed automatic transmission as standard. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and 150mph, the high-performance coupe proved a rewarding and enjoyable drive thanks to its all round independent suspension (complete with back axle acceleration stabiliser), four-wheel disc brakes, and power assisted steering. The fastest, most powerful Mercedes-Benz of its generation, the 560SEC was a strong seller with some 5,299 despatched worldwide in 1989.

Manufactured new in 1989, the 560 SEC offered was purchased new by the only owner (the vendor) while living in America. Specified from the factory with a premium sound system; climate control; electric controlled front seats; and bodywork protection, the 560 was used by the vendor during their time in America, before accompanying the vendors to the United Kingdom upon their return in 2001. Not used on the road for several years, the Mercedes-Benz was running and driving until recently when the car is understood to have developed a fault with the immobiliser. Therefore offered in need of attention to the immobiliser, the SEC will also require a degree of recommissioning having been off the road for several years. With just 104,000 miles from new, SECs with only one owner from new are few and far between. Accompanied by a history file that has significant amounts of paperwork from the car's time in America, and a current V5C document showing zero former keepers.
