"The big-daddy 560 SEL was the range topper of the S-Class range.
The M117 V-8 engine increased to 5.6-liters for its final
variation, the largest during the W126 era... Not only was this the
greatest S-Class money could buy at the time, but it's the one that
ended up in most driveways of those who could afford it, mainly
because it came with all the bells and whistles. Such extras
included a standard power-adjustable reclining rear bench seat,
heated seats, a self-leveling rear-suspension, and a limited-slip
differential." - Hagerty.com/media
This 1991 Mercedes Benz 560 SEL has only been driven 61,621 miles
by its two previous owners. Regular maintenance and full-time
indoor storage has left this Mercedes with no rust shown on both
the body and undercarriage. The car has been repainted several
years ago in the original color of Midnight Blue (Dunkelblau) and
presents very well. Upon very close inspection you may find some
very slight paint imperfections due to age and elements. The
interior is immaculate, with no wear or discoloration to the light
brown leather and carpet. The upper dash, display panel and
controls present like new. Aside from a small fracture in the wood
veneer near the shifter (shown in images) and fractured plastic
casing on the rear seatbelt buckles the interior looks like it just
rolled off the showroom floor.
The Mercedes is brought to a quick start with the electronic fuel
injection bringing it to smooth idle. The largest Mercedes engine
available for this model, the 5.6-liter V8 engine runs great and
can quickly get to the factory rated max speed of 155mph, this was
the fastest available full-sized vehicle in 1991. This
Mercedes-Benz W126 is "The End of an Era" and viewed by many as the
last model made with such precision and care.
If you are looking for a high-end car to drive in comfort or just a
Sunday morning cruiser this Mercedes Benz is an excellent
