Car Details:1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC AMG 6.0 Widebody coupe

Sale Details:Platinum Only

Auction:RM Sotheby's, RM Sotheby's Essen 2019 on April 11th, 2019

Lot #:Platinum Only

SCM #:6897974

Condition Description

Sold new as an AMG conversion in Baden-Baden, Germany—with the full slate of AMG accessories—yet was bought by the consignor in Japan. Seventeen-inch AMG multi-piece wheels on Japanese-made Dunlop tires. Rims showing some bimetallic corrosion. Excellent thick repaint, only apparent in masking lines around AMG hood badge, plus windshield and backlight perimeter. Inventory label on windshield where a VIN would be if this was a North American car. Door fit okay, but not as much on the button as one expects from a Benz. Door-panel wood is two different finishes: gloss and semi-gloss, but all is in pretty good shape. Modern CD sound system in center console. Moderate wear on outboard driver's seat-bolster piping is worst of the seat wear. Newer chambered, dual-exhaust system.
