This example is one of only 2,138 560 SEC models made in 1991, the car's final model year. The previous Arizona owner took loving care of this car since 2010 and the car is sold on a clean Carfax. Made in May 1991 at Mercedes-Benz's Sindelfingen, Germany factory, this big Benz is finished in Smoke Silver Metallic (code 702). The paint and trim are in overall very good order but there are a few paint chips visible on the leading edge of the hood and front bumper. The car's body carries a drag coefficient of 0.34, which was quite good for such a large coupe 30 years ago. The body is solid, the cargo area is clean and engine bay is extremely tidy. The car's body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the body. This Benz rolls on Michelin Primacy MXV4 radials, size 205/65R15 at every corner. Each one is mounted onto a BBS aluminum alloy wheel. The wheels present with some scrapes and blemishes while the tires are in very good condition. Under the hood is a 5.5L SOHC all-aluminum V-8 engine (code M117) with Bosch KE electronic fuel injection. The motor is linked to a four-speed automatic transmission (code 4G-TRONIC). This car received a new distributor cap, spark plugs and ignition wiring in 2021. Driver convenience features include electronic climate control (code 581), power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, sunroof (code 412), power windows, cruise control, power locks, power sideview mirrors, power and heated front seats (code 873) with memory and power antenna. The refrigerant in the car's air-conditioning system was converted to R134a in 2021, according to the previous owner. Safety equipment includes dual front airbags (code 291), anti-lock brakes, traction control, anti-theft system (code 551) and headlight wipers. The car's beige leather interior (code 265) is believed to be original. The front buckets and rear seats look very good overall, with some minor wear visible on the driver's side seat bolsters as testimony to enjoying the car. The matching headliner and four-spoke steering wheel are in fine shape. The brown-over-tan dashboard offer color contrast and looks great while the inner door liners have held up well. The center console, dash and door panels all have burled walnut accents, and there is a crack in the one on the driver's door. The console and console-mounted shift lever all look great and a factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and six speakers completes the interior. The W126 class carried a bevy of firsts in multiple facets: oUse of high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) sheet steel? oStandard anti-lock brakes oSeatbelt pre-tensioners oFront and rear crumple zones oFluted taillamps to maintain visibility even when dirty oDual front airbags oTraction control and center high-mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) oCourtesy lights on the doors' underside to see the pavement when exiting the vehicle at night oRear reading lamps oExterior temperature sensor with LC display oWorld's first seat belt presenters oHaptic power seat switches oFactory theft-deterrent system oTopographical sensor in the four-speed automatic transmission + throttle pedal position oFirst trip computer option Competition to this Benz in 1991 included Aston Martin's Virage, Audi's Coupe, Ford's Thunderbird Super Coupe, Jaguar's XJ-S and Porsche's 928. Documentation includes original leather zippered binder containing original owner's manual, original stereo guide, original dealer directory for U.S., Canada, original car care guide and more. Grand tourers like this one seem to come along once in a generation. This big Benz was the pinnacle of engineering and style to some people, which is what helps it maintain its allure after three decad
