AMG UPGRADED, MOTOR INCREASED TO 6.0L, $25K UPGRADE DONE IN 1990, ALL RECEIPTS
Yes, you are looking at one of the ultra-rare last/best independent AMG cars. This 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC AMG is what you got if you could threw the budget away and wanted a true performance luxury machine. AMG enlarged the Mercedes V8 to 6.0-liters, added suspension components, and installed new appearance upgrades inside & out. This is a rare package that has been loved and maintained since day one.
For those who don't remember AMG used to not be a part of Mercedes. They were an independent company that would only work on the best and most expensive Benzes around. Because they were so good with M-B products, AMG was eventually brought in-house to be like BMW's M division. But this 560SEC is one of the rarest and final cars to come from the time when AMG chose their projects with care. Not many of these coupes received this treatment because it rocketed the top-of-the-line Mercedes well into Ferrari price territory. But that was ok because these were super quick, too. Besides just the badge on the trunk, you can instantly tell the AMG cars by features like the new body-colored grille, wider special AMG alloy wheels, and lower more aggressive stance from the sports suspension. Of course it all still looks fantastic today, because this has been a garage-kept treasure all its life. You can easily see it in the pictures with the condition of this white hardtop coupe, and it's just confirmed by the actual mileage that barely averaged more than 1,000 miles per year.
Inside is pure Mercedes luxury. The "C" in 560 SEC denotes the coupe version in the full-size flagship line. So it has the space (including in the rear) and impressiveness of its four-door sibling with an added dash of sportiness. This is furthered by the special AMG white-faced gauge setup. Fully upholstered in high-quality blue leather, the interior will be familiar to any Mercedes fan, and it's a testament to good design that it is so easy to get behind the wheel and feel instantly at ease. The seats, door panels, carpets, and other soft parts are in outstanding condition and seem to defy the decades. This modern classic comes with desirable features, including automatic climate control, exterior temperature display, power windows, power locks, heated seats, dual airbags, cruise control, powered sunroof, and the famous Mercedes-Benz power seat controls. The A/C system was recently rebuilt and uses R134a refrigerant, and the stereo has been upgraded to a full custom system with an Alpine AM/FM/CD head unit and powered speakers throughout the car. Those two features combined means you can truly enjoy this pillarless hardtop with all the windows down and stay cool while hearing your music even approaching triple-digit speeds.
Under the hood is what AMG does best. The OHV 5.6-liter V8 that's impressive in the 560 was only the base for AMG. The upgrades included enlarging the motor to 6.0-liters; and installing a performance exhaust system, including headers. This became a vastly more powerful machine (some horsepower ratings reached 385) and so the fully independent suspension was also upgraded to handle this speedy coupe's attitude. Best of all, there has been plenty of regular maintenance on this low mileage car, so we can show you that it remains in top condition today. It's still a Mercedes at heart, so you get power steering, a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and four-wheel disc brakes.
