In the late-80s, the heaviest of heavy-hitters was the Mercedes-Benz S-class, with the dramatic 560SEC coupe at the very top of the hierarchy. Stunning luxury machines like this black-on-black 1988 example could hammer the Autobahn all day at triple-digit speeds, coddling their occupants like no other car in the world. Fresh off a recent service by a Mercedes-Benz dealership, this one is ready to impress today. Few cars have a more commanding road presence than an S-class Mercedes, especially in sinister, inky black. With a recent paint job, this one doesnt look 24 years old, now rejuvenated and beautifully preserved thanks to an enthusiastic owner. The big coupe has style in spades, with a dramatic hardtop profile and sleek lines that definitely announce that this big Benz takes no prisoners. In typical German fashion, the design is restrained and the clean lines minimize the cars size, but theres no denying that this is a lot of car hammering down the road. A few bits of chrome, like the surround for the window opening emphasizes the cars best attributes, and theres just no mistaking the big 3-pointed star up front that moves lesser traffic out of the way like a snow plow. Experts will note subtle modifications like the clear parking light lenses and smoked taillights, both of which seem to further enhance the sleek shape. Inside, the S-class got every luxury and convenience item Mercedes engineers could imagine in 1988. Power leather buckets are firm and supportive and in shockingly good condition considering the age and mileage on this coupe. Gorgeous door panels feature different materials and shapes that helped Mercedes break out of its cold, impersonal interior look, and the burled walnut on the center console warms it up inside nicely. White-faced gauges are a modern twist on the clear instruments Mercedes always offered, and theres a massive stereo system featuring a Kenwood head unit, speakers fitted throughout the interior, and a big subwoofer in the trunk. Heated seats, climate control, power windows, and a sunroof are all included, making this a first-class luxury liner. The 5.6 liter V8 under the hood is one of Mercedes most reliable units, capable of running for hundreds of thousands of miles with little more than basic maintenance. Torquey and smooth, it moves the big coupe with the effortless ease of an electric motor, and the relentless push of torque makes it feel like it could accelerate forever. Beautifully maintained, the engine bay is spotless, from the big chrome air cleaner lid to all the hoses and wires that comprise what was, at the time, the worlds most technically advanced automobile. Obviously, someone loved this one-A LOT. Its the same deal underneath, where theres a 4-speed automatic with syrupy smooth shifts and a fully independent suspension that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft. Oversized 18-inch AMG wheels look simply awesome, and wear 245/45/18 performance radials. First-class accommodations and a ton of luxury for the price of a 3-year-old Honda Accord. Call today!
