Lot : Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC

Vintage, Classic & Collectors Motor Vehicles, BCA (22 April 2008)

First appearing in 1981, the SEC was a most striking design based on the 'S' Class saloon. Unlike many coupés, it boasted a light and airy interior and accommodation and furnishings were of the usual high standard. With their firm yet smooth ride and excellent road manners, the SE coupés were a highly regarded motor car and are now establishing a following as a worthy latter-day classic offering, as they do, exceptional value for money. A 1985 example, this motor car was supplied new to comedian and TV personality, the late Bob Monkhouse, and its impressive specification includes climate control and air conditioning, electrically heated front seats, blue hide upholstery, central locking and much more. AMG suspension and body kit were fitted and the car sits on 5-spoke alloy wheels with locking nuts. The Pirelli P6000 tyres have recently been replaced and we are advised that the car is mechanically in good condition in all respects. It is said to drive superbly, and is only now being offered for sale due to the vendor's imminent emigration. A pleasing example in all respects, it is supplied with documentation including partial service history, a V5 registration document and an MOT certificate current until 1st August 2008.
