In the '90s, the heaviest of heavy-hitters was the Mercedes-Benz S-class, with the dramatic 560 SEL sedan at the top of the hierarchy. Luxury machines like this very attractive Black 1990 (the final year of the venerable W126 generation) example could hammer the Autobahn all day at triple-digit speeds, all whilst coddling their occupants like no other car in the world. For a car with an original cost that's the equivalent of almost $150,000 today, this is a great way to get incredible luxury at an incredible discount. If you want the ultimate in vintage luxury, it's a simple decision to choose "The best or nothing".

Few cars have a more commanding road presence than an S-class Mercedes, and you'll have no trouble cruising through traffic with this handsome 4-door sedan. Still wearing it factory-original paint and looking nothing short of remarkable for a vehicle of this age, it goes to show you what the best paint in the world can deliver. It's simply held up better than any paint ever could in the 30 years and 73,198 miles since it was born, and that's what you get when you make the life-altering decision to buy a Mercedes-Benz. Of course, some of that is probably thanks to enthusiastic owners, but there's no denying that this car has led an easy life since it left the factory in Deutschland. All the gaps and seams are near perfect, and even though the finish has acquired a few light scratches here and there (and they are very minor, a professional cut-and-buff would likely eradicate most of them), this Benz still shows incredibly well. The big sedan has style in spades, with a formal profile and sleek lines that definitely announce that this big Benz takes no prisoners. In typical German fashion, the design is restrained and the clean lines minimize the car's size, but there's no denying that this is a lot of sheetmetal hammering down the road. A few bits of chrome shine up great, like the surrounds for the window openings, and the contrast emphasizes the car's best attributes. And of course, there's just no mistaking the big 3-pointed star up front that moves lesser traffic out of the way like a snow plow.

Inside, the S-class got every luxury and convenience item Mercedes engineers could imagine in 1990. Power heated black leather buckets are firm and supportive and in shockingly great condition considering the age on this heavy cruiser. Gorgeous door panels feature different materials and shapes that helped Mercedes break out of its cold, impersonal interior look that plagued it decades before, and the burled walnut throughout the cabin warms up everything nicely. Big, clear instruments are similar to those Mercedes always offered, and there's a massive stereo system featuring a stock Mercedes AM/FM/Cassette/CD changer and speakers fitted throughout the interior. Heated power seats, an electronically adjustable steering wheel, electric sunroof, automatic climate control, cruise control, power windows and locks, and a giant trunk are all included, making this a first-class luxury liner with enough creature comforts to appease even spoiled Millennials.

The 5.6 liter V8 under the hood is one of Mercedes' most reliable units, capable of running for hundreds of thousands of miles with little more than basic maintenance. Torquey and smooth, it moves the big sedan with the effortless ease of an electric motor, and the relentless push of torque makes it feel like it could accelerate forever. Beautifully maintained (and yes, we have the maintenance records to prove it), the engine bay is nearly spotless (another reason we're leaning toward those kilometers as being original, despite the lack of undeniable proof), from the big aluminum air cleaner lid to all the hoses and wires that comprise what was, at the time, the world's most technically advanced automobile. Obviously, the 4 previous owners loved this Merc like a member of the family and the maintenance and low mileage means that it's still bulletproof reliable today. It's the same deal underneath, where there's a 4-speed automatic with syrupy smooth shifts and a fully independent suspension that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft. Classic Mercedes-Benz light alloy wheels look right and wear 205/65/15 Michelin performance radials at all four corners.

First-class accommodations and a ton of luxury for the price of a used Hyundai. And this one is loaded with manuals and even the original window sticker, a further example of its well-preserved status. Low mileage, low ownership vintage Mercs don't pop up that often, and when they do, they don't last long. Call today!
