1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC

The businessman's express for 1988. When you drove up to a company party in a Signal Red Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, you had arrived. Those who could afford the $80k+ price tag knew what they were getting: not just prestige without pretension, but smooth power, reliability and most important unparalleled build quality. Some Mercedes experts believe the 126 chassis Mercedes to be one of the finest post-war Mercedes ever built, and one of the best automobiles ever manufactured...unsurpassed to this day. Sadly, most of us know contemporary Mercedes-Benz abandoned their "quality-first" business model, driving smart and market-aware buyers into snatching up these timeless future classics.
