1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 6.0 AMG


This 1989 Mercedes 560SEL AMG 6.0 was produced before the full merger of AMG and Mercedes-Benz. It has the rare M117 6.0L DOHC 32-valve V-8 engine which produces 385 horsepower and is a great testament to the engineering and innovation of AMG in its early days. The engine was said to be designed and built at Affalterbach—AMG Headquarters—using custom quad-cam head with four valves per cylinder, producing twice the torque at half the engine speed of the original 5.6L Mercedes engine. In the late 1980’s, AMG received several requests to produce the M117 V8 Hammer engine with the S-class coupe and sedans (560SEC/SEL). This car was built by AMG with engine number 469 60 25. The production eventually phased out in 1993 when Mercedes gained more control of the AMG factory, which makes these models even more rare and collectible. The exterior is finished in black pearl metallic and fitted with AMG body work, larger brakes, and larger wheels. The interior comes with AMG instrument gauge cluster, AMG steering wheel, black leather, power adjustable rear seats, and fold-out picnic tables. Car has very low miles at 40,885 km (25,405 miles) and has been maintained very well throughout the years. (Source: Original Rare)
