This particular example has had only one family owner since new and has spent virtually its entire life garaged in Hastings, NE and a car which was obviously always garaged with no signs of any accidents with the factory 'Black' color paint still in virtually flawless condition and with an absolutely beautiful condition and all original 'Gray' 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 clean CARFAX report and its full service history. Purchased on 6/12/1992 at 'Aristocrat Motor Company', the Mercedes-benz dealership of Shawnee Mission, KS where the car was initally serviced whilst under warranty and in later years the car was serviced at a local NAPA Auto Care Center independent repair shop, 'Halloran Automotive' of Hastings, NE.
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 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 the last and therefore obviously most desirable and refined year of this iconic motorcar! It was also the only year in the US to have the added factory option available of Traction Control System (Cost $1,975) otherwise known as ASR which was a Mercedes-Benz first and prevented wheelspin. It also 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 last and therefore most desirable year model for the W126 S class series and an especially desirable 1991 560SEC coupe with only one careful family owner since new and boasting all original documentation and service records and only 33K original miles in this most striking and desirable of color combinations available anywhere else!
