The Car

The W126 series Mercedes Benz was built for the discerning wealthy German traveller to quickly navigate the derestricted autobahn network at high speed whilst offering exceptional comfort and style. Its 300-horsepower V8 enabled a true 155 mph top speed, while acceleration from zero to sixty took no more than 7 seconds. It was probably the most comfortable way to travel across the country. Even at 140 mph, you can talk in normal voice or listen to music without being disturbed by wind or road noise. The high-speed refinement and stability were hardly matched by other cars at the time, let alone one offering space for four big guys.

We're delighted to offer this 560SEC on consignment. The car was manufactured in September 1986 in Germany and then first registered in February 1987 in Japan. This low mileage example later went on to be exported to Auckland, New Zealand in 2007 to its second owner who kept the car dry stored. The vehicle was then more recently exported by the current owner to the United Kingdom in early 2019.

The car is very dry having been dry stored with it’s two most recent owners and still drives beautifully. It is rare to find an example like this with such low mileage, having covered a mere 12,241 miles since August 2006. New Zealand vehicle history report showing change of ownership, and annual ‘Warrant of Fitness’ (WOF) Inspections that detail mileage at 6-month intervals between 2007 and 2018.

UK first registration documents and accompanying MOT certificate.

There is also a host of recent bills, this includes a new Bosch battery, new exhaust system from the downpipe back, along with smaller trim items and refurbishment of a period Becker radio.

We are here and open for business

These are truly extraordinary times. Although we’re not as raring to go as usual, we still remain open, with shipping line's continuing to run, although at a reduced frequency. 

  Keeping our distance 

 Fortunately we are a small team and geographically spread. The team are largely working from home with the exception of our independent mechanics who are able to continue to work safely. 

 What does this mean for YOU

 We continue to operate and send out vehicles globally on a monthly basis. Our ability to prepare a vehicle to a client's specification is somewhat stifled. Although our mechanics are doing their very best, to meet smaller requests.

  Fast Moving Cars 

 AKA lockdown project. 

We’ve been working hard over recent months to gather a collection of "FAST MOVING CARS". These are rolling projects, although not perfect, they are ideal for first time importers giving a taste of what English classics have to offer.  

  Fighting fit in no time

 We are confident that we will come through this stronger and we wish safety and good health to everyone and their families. 

We are only a call, email or text away so please don’t hesitate.
