1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SE

$_57 (1)

One of the rarest W126 Mercedes-Benz S-Classes ever produced was one we never saw here on US shores: the 560SE. A mere 1,251 were ever manufactured between 1988 and 1991. This was a short-wheelbase version of the flagship 560SEL sedan, which at first would seem to be a bit of an odd combination. Most who were in the market for this well optioned car would want the extra rear legroom, hence the low production numbers. Before the days of the W124 based 500E/E500, however, there were perhaps some that were hungry for the largest engine in the range in something just a bit smaller.

With much of the W126 production eligible for import to the US, this 1990 560SE will soon be legal to bring over to these shores in 2015. With so few produced, a car like this for sale in Hamburg, Germany is a way to stand out from the rest of the W126 crowd.

The W126 S-class is known for being able to rack up the miles, much in the same manner of other vintage Benzes. Values for the best examples of 560SELs are hovering around the $15,000 mark, give or take a bit. This 560SE has a good bit of miles on it, so anything over $10,000 seems a bit optimistic, no matter how rare this particular model may be. Considering shipping and importation costs that would face US buyers, it would seem this car will probably change hands to another European owner.
