Elegant and timeless, the Mercedes SEC was a style icon of its era that married everything that was great from the legendary W126 chassis S-Class with Bruno Sacco’s handsome pillar-less body. A shape that did not have a bad angle. For many this was the ultimate GT car for long distance touring and a car to which many aspired.
This 1989 420SEC is one previously supplied by ourselves and we’re always pleased to see again. Finished in arguably one of the best colour combinations of Nautic Blue metallic with grey leather, it is equipped with all the usual luxuries of the SEC plus heated/memory electric seats.
Supplied by Hadleigh Ltd of London, the first owner in Central London kept the car until 2002, at which point it had covered just 10k miles, but the subsequent owners have enjoyed the car a little more taking the mileage today to a, still low, 76,128 miles. Supporting the mileage is a Full Service History – the service book contains 20 stamps and that is backed up by a large folder of receipts that begin with the original bill of sale when new.
All original books and manuals come with the car along with previous registration certificates and MoT certificates. HPI clear. Last serviced by ourselves just over 1000 miles ago.
As the history and condition today show this SEC has been beautifully looked after from day one. The body is excellent throughout, matching Michelin tyres all round, the interior is really lovely and the car drives just as it should.
The ‘420SEC’ registration comes with the car.
In summary, a superb, low mileage late SEC in great colours and with excellent provenance.
