1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL 6.0 AMG

Description

Prior to its merger with Daimler AG, AMG was an independent tuner that was established in 1967 by Daimler-Benz engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher (the G is for Grossaspach, Aufrecht’s birthplace). AMG would modify engines and sell performance accessories that customers could use to upgrade their Mercedes-Benz automobiles. By the 1980s, customers were special-ordering Mercedes-Benzes through AMG with expensive modifications, yet the two companies’ first joint product, the AMG C36, would not be introduced until 1993.
Powered by a 6.0-litre V8, the engine itself was designed and built at Affalterbach using AMG custom quad-cam head with four valves per cylinder, producing twice the torque at half the engine speed of the original 5.6-litre engine. On the outside, the car was fitted with distinctive AMG-designed front and rear fenders and door panels that allowed much wider wheels and tires to be fitted.
Offered in this wonderful colour combination of midnight blue with sumptuous blue leather interior, this excellent example is showing approximately 99,000km on the odometer. A ferociously fast saloon car that is sure to turn heads.
