Description

UK-supplied and just one registered keeper from newFull service and MOT historyStunning colour combinationPeriod Lorinser wheelsVery rare and undoubtedly a best of breedcontenderNot many people remember that back in 1990 the most expensive production car you could buy in the UK was not the Rolls Royce Silver Spirit, but in fact the Mercedes-Benz top of the range 500 SEC.The 5.0-litre silky smooth fuel-injected V8 coupled with a 4-speed auto box was a sublime combination and offered in three versions of the S class - 500SE 4 door saloon, 500SEL long-wheelbase saloon and the flagship 500SEC Coupe.Availability was extremely scarce with just a few hundred Coupversions allocated annually in the UK, mostly to celebrities and industry leaders of the time.Here we have a rare original UK 500SEC, with just one registered keeper and a warranted 73,744miles covered from new. The comprehensive history file shows bills, receipts and old MOTs confirming the mileage as genuine with Evans Furniture of High Wycombe as the sole registered keeper throughout.Finished in Arctic White with smart Blue Grey leather upholstery, the car also has Lorinser period wheels which both lower the cars profile and add to its dramatic appearance and look. It'sin real time-warp condition and drives very smoothly, quickly and quietly just as it did back in the day.In summary ~ a modern classic from the early 1990s with refinements such as electric seats (which pass you the seatbelt when you close the doors), power steering, central locking, ABS brakes, air conditioning, cruise control and electric sunroof ~ all of which allow you to enjoy the car today in comfort and make the car ideal for European or long-distance trips to the far corners of the UK in a reliable car which is still a very special place to be.The original book pack with original instruction manual and service book is still present as are a spare set of keys.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location of Stoneleigh Park (CV8 2LG) Monday to Friday, between Thursday 29th October 12th November.
