Finished in Classic White, this mighty coupe is in magnificent condition. The huge bonnet is free from stone chips and the contour is perfectly straight with no ripples, poor repairs or door dinks in sight, in fact there is not a dent or scratch to be found anywhere on or around the body. The chrome work on the bumpers is in excellent condition and the two tone grey trim contrasting the white paintwork nicely, matching its splendid condition.
Finished with only the best leather available at the time, this 'Special class' must have felt every bit that back in 1985. Lashings of wood trim are combined with a totally blue colour scheme and topped with all of the options available from Mercedes Benz, all of which are fully functional and remain in excellent condition. Fully electric heated memory seats allow the driver or passenger to be seduced into total comfort. The electric functions of the windows and sunroof are available to control the inside cabin temperature manually or the optional and uprated automatic climate control system with air conditioning. There is no need to even reach for the front seat belts as they're automatically handed to you by the car. Stop for some cold refreshments and the car provides just that, with a Mercedes fitted Engel boot fridge stowed neatly in the boot!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 5L V8 is in fine condition and has been treated to a lifetime of Mercedes main dealer services from day one. With a recent overhaul the car is running as well as it did when new, providing performance or total luxury cruising. The 4 speed automatic changes through the gears as it should and wafts the car along with a seamless motion.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The standard light weight alloy wheels are in excellent condition with not a mark or scuff in sight. The rear tyres look almost new with plenty of tread left on the fronts. The spare wheel looks unused and still bares its original Mercedes sticker. The brakes work as they should pulling the car to a controlled and effortless stop.
This 500 SEC has had a full service history with Mercedes Benz, in particular its supplying dealer Mercedes Benz Brentford, who supplied the car then serviced it a further 10 times over the first 52,997 miles of its life. It then visited Mercedes Benz Park Royal for its last service at 54,946. This mighty coupe has only had a total of 2 owners in its life.
The original owners pack is still present, along with two original keys, the fully stamped service book and the V5 document.
