This 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 6.0 AMG was delivered new to Japan in 1991 and is presented with 72,945 km (~45k miles). The car was first imported to the United States in 2018 and subsequently acquired by the current owner in February 2019. The car is finished in Astral Silver (735) over Black leather (261) and power comes from an AMG-modified 6.0L V8 paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes cruise control, a power sunroof, automatic climate control, and heated front and rear seats with front seat position memory. Other AMG features include a full body kit including bumpers, side skirts, and spoiler, 3-piece AMG wheels, exhaust, steering wheel, rear wooden tray tables, door trim, and shift knob, and AMG gauges. The car has remained in climate controlled storage and recent service in 2021 included all fresh fluids including oil, coolant, brakes, and transmission along with new brake pads and rotors. The car is now being offered by the seller on behalf of the owner with an original AMG brochure, factory literature, two keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title.
This 6.0 SEL was originally finished in Black Pearl from the factory and received a full body repaint to Astral Silver (735) in Japan under previous ownership. The car features a full period-correct AMG full body kit including front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and a ducktail spoiler designed to reduce drag and wind resistance. Other exterior features include a sunroof with tilt function, lower front fog lights, paint-matched chrome trim, and dual exit AMG exhaust tips.
Staggered 3-piece AMG Aero III wheels made by OZ Racing have a silver-painted face with a polished lip and hardware. The wheels are fitted with new directional Nexen N3000 tires measuring 235/45 up front and 275/40 in the rear. The seller states that the car received new brake pads and rotors in 2021 along with a brake fluid flush.
The interior is finished in Black leather (261) along with a matching dash and carpet. Burl wood accents the cabin on the center console, doors and dash while additional wood trim pieces have been added by AMG including a shift knob, rear folding tray tables, and additional door trim. An AMG plaque can be seen on the center console above the shift surround and additional amenities include cruise control, a power sunroof, automatic climate control, and heated front and rear seats with front seat position memory.
The AMG four-spoke steering wheel is made by Momo and frames AMG instrumentation including a 300kph speedometer, 7k rpm tachometer with an inset clock, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and instant economy. The odometer currently reads 72,945 km (~45k miles).
This W126 features an AMG-modified 6.0-liter DOHC 32-valve M117/9 V8 engine that increased engine output to approximately 380 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The car originally came fitted with a 5.5L V8 which AMG swapped the stock single-cam, two-valve-per-cylinder heads for its own free-breathing, twin-cam, four-valve-per-cylinder units. Photos of the engine bay are provided showing the AMG valve cover stickers indicating the 6.0 conversion. Recent service in 2021 included all fresh fluids including oil, coolant, brakes, and transmission along with new brake pads and rotors.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission with a Torsen limited-slip differential and a reinforced rear subframe. Additional underbody photos are provided in the gallery.
The factory tool roll and spare tire are located in the trunk area and AMG-specific indicator stickers can be seen on the top of the trunk seal.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage since its first entry in September 2018 when it was imported into the United States. This W126 6.0 sedan is now offered in Florida with an original AMG brochure, factory literature, two keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title.
