With the introduction of the W126, Mercedes-Benz reverted back to the old formula of basing their large, four seater coupe on the S class sedan instead of the SL roadster as we saw with the SLC. The SEC debuted in 1981 and very much appeared like a two-door S class, with a few minor differences and the trademark pillarless design Mercedes coupes were known for. The ultimate version of the SEC was the 560SEC, introduced for the 1986 model year and manufactured until 1991, capping a production run of just under 75,000 SEC coupes.
This 560SEC for sale in New Jersey has covered under 50,000 miles and, for me, is the definition of understated elegance.

This is an amazing 1989 Mercedes 560SEC coupe. These cars are getting harder and harder to find. This example is stunning. It rides and drives tight and straight. It shows it was babied all its life. I have service records, books, and window sticker. Tires are like new.This car has only 42,527 miles. This is the one.
Growing up, my father had a 1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E in this very color combination. While I enjoy unique interior and exterior colors, the blue interior can be overwhelming at times, as there is just so much of it. However, silver over blue is a classic Mercedes color combination, so I’ll give it a pass. Around $17,000 to $20,000 is about the maximum you’d expect to pay for a clean, late model SEC coupe. At $22,000 we’re not far off that mark, so given a discount off the Buy It Now price, someone is going to snag one beautiful grand touring machine.
