1979 Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9 The 450 SEL 6.9 is the high-performance
version of the W116 S-Class saloon. It was based on the
long-wheelbase version of W116 chassis introduced in 1972 and
equipped with Mercedes-Benz M100 V8 engine and full hydropneumatic
suspension system. The 450 SEL 6.9 was presented to the public at
the Geneva Auto Show in 1974 as the successor to the original
high-performance saloon from Mercedes-Benz, the 300 SEL 6.3
(1968-1972). Like 300 SEL 6.3, the nomenclate, 6.9, was affixed to
the trunk lid as to differentiate itself from 450 SEL. The 450 SEL
6.9 was produced in a very limited number from 1975 to 1981. only
about 350 cars were imported to the United States in 1979. This is
a very nice example of a rare Mercedes, Southern California Car
with no rust issues, looks and runs beautifully.
