The most powerful S class version
First registered on 8 April 1991 in Paris, this Mercedes 560 SEL changed hands on 1 February 1994, staying in the capital. A succession gave Daimler Chrysler the opportunity to buy the car in 2003, with the name on the registration document changing to Mercedes-Benz France in February 2009. That year, the metallic anthracite grey coachwork and various chrome accessories were completely restored. The car remains in well-preserved condition, inside and out. The black leather interior and carpets show no notable defects. Thanks to the long wheelbase of the SEL version, the car boasts a particularly spacious passenger compartment. The level of finish and equipment correspond to the high standing of this model, and include a Becker Mexico radio, sunroof, rear window blind, memory heated front seats, tinted windscreen and windows, automatic air-conditioning, rear footrests, volumetric alarms...
