Introduced in 1990, the 560SEC AMG was perhaps the most fabled of the “pre-merger” upgraded Mercedes-Benz automobiles. The car was powered with a 6.0-liter engine, producing twice the torque of the original 5.6-liter Mercedes-Benz engine.

Experts believe that only 50 or so of these pre-merger 560s exist — and one is on offer here. On file is paperwork from Japan proving its low mileage, and a full service in the U.K. in 2016.
