Mercedes-Benz Oldtimer shows up for sale with only 46 km on its odometer. Yes, that’s right. A brand new Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL from 1986 can now be yours if you can come with the asking price of $170K.

The car in question was Mercedes-Benz’s flagship model at the time, the best-motorized, best-equipped, longer-wheelbase version of the W126 Series S-Class, in exterior metallic gray and burgundy interior. And it’s fully optioned, with full leather and airbags. Yes, a 560 SEL,with a 5.5 liter 299 horsepower V8 engine that is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission, airbags, parking heater, leather interior, air conditioning, sliding roof… What else would you need? The 560 SEL can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.9 seconds.

The 1986 S-Class does not seem to have been taken out of the sun in the day, and is so new that it has all the warning signs on it, so these should be removed first.

Nevertheless, the writing says that everything works as intended, although unfortunately it has never been registered, which, according to today’s EU regulations, can cause considerable inconvenience to anyone trying to legalize it, but what should it be? Who is going to hike in such an amber frozen Mercedes to Europe? It will be good for a smooth exhibit somewhere.

The seller does not know what it is worth, but there is no realistic price for one. When they turned to mobile.de for help (where they advertise), they couldn’t say anything, the usual “Keine realistische Preisbewertung möglich-duma” came. The seller then asked about 150 thousand euros.

However, this is only a guide price, cultivated request the seller is open to trial because the car may be worth more, may be worth less. Just one thing – I don’t even know how to look at this, not as if I could buy one, but I’d love to smell the brand new leather of an equally fresh W126 S-Class at least once in my life. That should be harder than you think though…

Because it’s on Madeira Island.
