This particular example has obviously enjoyed only very careful and particular owners since new and is a car which was obviously always garaged with no signs of any major accidents (with only one very minor accident reported on the Carfax report following extremely minor rear end damage to the rear bumper) with the factory 'Smoke Silver Metallic' color paint in virtually flawless condition and with an absolutely beautiful condition and all original 'Mushroom' leather interior. The original leather dashboard and the walnut wood veneer interior are still like new too (obviously always garaged from the sun and elements!)
The car has a CARFAX report showing comprehensive service reports being completed at scheduled intervals. We also have a thick file of records documenting the car's service history showing that at no time was any expense spared on this particular car's preventive maintenance.
This was the last year of the legendary W126 series and the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz flagship series officially known as the 'S' class meaning 'Special Class' and had a suggested retail price of over $82K by it's last year of production in 1991. The W126 S-class was a champion in the luxury car market and dominated worldwide sales during its twelve year production run from 1979-91 and by the end of its run was renown internationally as being the world's best selling prestige luxury car! It was awarded the US Highway Loss Data Institute's 'Safest Passenger Car of the Year Award' in both 1988 & 1989! It was replaced by the W140 in 1991.
This is one of the very last and therefore obviously most desirable years of this iconic motorcar! The car boasted both driver and passenger side airbags, crumple zones, cruise control, 8-way power dual stage heated front memory seats, automatic climate control, sunroof and anti-lock brakes! It also boasted new drivetrain technologies such as a four speed automatic transmission with a topographical sensor that monitored the vehicles position whether on an incline or a decline along with the gas pedal position which produced an extraordinary capacity to hold back the acceleration when coasting downhill and to maintain the 'S' class position without using the brake pedal after coming to a complete stop on an incline! It also featured a 'limp home mode' in case of electronic failure and was programmed to start in second gear in order to always allow for smooth wheelspin free launches!
Without a doubt, this is one of the finest classic luxury cars built by Mercedes-Benz and certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer example of this W126 S class series 1990 560SEC coupe in this most striking and desirable of color combinations available anywhere else!
