1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SE

12,000 Miles and One Owner From New


In 1979 the type series W 126 replaced the preceding model from the series W 116. In the 1980’s the 126 became the icon of West German politicians and business tycoons. Members of the federal government were almost exclusively driven in these cars, however, usually in an armoured version. The former chancellor Helmut Kohl had a model from this series and put it out of service only after it had done ca. 500,000 kilometres. Even Nelson Mandela had a 500 SE. A total of 74,060 units of the coupé were built.


This blue with blue interior example has been subject to very little use, and is said to be in excellent condition. With only 23,000 miles from new and complete with all tools and books, this example is one for the collector. To be offered with a fresh MoT.
