The SEC was arguably the best (if not the most charismatic) coupe in the world when it was launched – but then it had a good starting point, being based on the S-Class saloon. Originally launched in 380 and 500 form, the SEC in its most basic variation came with 204bhp and steel wheels, with ABS only an optional extra until 1985.
The post-1985 facelift 420SEC was a much more accomplished all-rounder. The 500SEC was the range-topper for five years until the 560, and had a fairly lazy 240bhp, electric seats, ABS and a walnut-veneered dash. Formidable then, fast and comfortable now, all SECs offer a lot of car for your money.
Presented in red with a cream interior this SEC is presented in good condition throughout with an excellent service history. Proven by service records, the car has done 60,000 miles from new, with the current odometer reading 27,000 miles owing to the fact it was changed during restoration. The car has enjoyed a recent full service at a cost of £5,000 in which alls seals have been replaced, a new Bosch fuel distribution pump has been installed and a new air conditioning pump. All electrics are in working order and with no rust, this lovely SEC is ready to enjoy.
