1988 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC W126 Automatic

An iconic and handsome brute, the 500SEC has just arrived into stock. Finished in Gloss Red with Tan leather and carpets. This Mercedes has covered 143,000 miles from new. The car has only had 3 previous owners (4 in total) with it spending most of its life (1993-2012) with one of its owners.
The car has clearly been cared for throughout its life. Itโ€™s not one that has ever been allowed to rot away nor is it rusty now. It has been kept in regular use and MOT annually. Unfortunately, we are lacking on paperwork history for the car and only have invoices etc. from more recent years.
The car presents very well throughout but does have some small dings and blemishes here and there. That said, we think it is great value at the asking price, just please do not expect a ยฃ25-30,000 car at this sort of money. It drives fantastically and we would be happy to just get in and use it as is or it could be improved upon over time.
The car was recently serviced and will come with a fresh MOT as part of the sale. These icons have skyrocketed in value over the past few years and honest, rot-free examples are hard to come by - especially at this price point!
As with all of our vehicles, we have a digital folder available on request containing more images, walkaround videos, pictures of the underside and scans of the service history. The car can be viewed by appointment at our West London showroom.
