1988 Mercedes 420 SEC W126 with Stylish Modifications
A rare sight on our roads, Mercedes produced much lower numbers of the 420 SEC’s, with just 3,680 built. Compare this to 30,184 of the 500’s, 28,929 of the 560’s & 11,267 380’s and it’s easy to see why the 420 SEC is now the rarest example by a long way; according to the DVLA there are only 69 examples currently licensed on UK roads.
This stylish 4.2-litre V8 coupe , delivers circa 221bhp to the rear wheels through a super smooth four-speed automatic transmission.
Finished in black, de-chromed & de-badged with a stunning cream leather & burr walnut interior and riding on 18-inch AMG monoblock wheels shod with Accelera and Avon tyres; it certainly has an impressive road presence.
As you’d expect from a flagship Mercedes, the cabin is all about luxury & style, including electric front and rear windows, electrically operated mirrors, electrically adjustable front seats, seatbelt butlers, a heated rear screen, a sunroof, cruise control and a retro fitted JVC head unit with USB and auxiliary connectivity.
These were the equivalent of £130,000 in todays money and represent the height of ‘80s motoring sophistication and incredible value for money.
