1990 Mercedes Koenig Specials 560SEC Widebody

Koenig Specials started tuning Mercedes in 1984. They did work on Ferrari and Porsche as well and in most cases the finished project was significantly wider than it started. For Benzs K.S. offered supercharged and twin turbo variants. Customers were able to ask for pretty much anything they wanted. The trade mark though is those monster flares with tires as wide as they are tall, this one features 335/35/17 tires out back.

There is not a lot of description here, but the pictures do speak for themselves. The car has 33,000 miles. It would be great if it came with provenance/ownership history. Sometimes with cars like these it is hard to know what is stock and what isn’t underneath the obvious.

The interior has been totally customized with everything from a TV to a trunk mounted DVD an VHS player and lots of extra wood. 5 point harness and stylized Koenig gauges go along with the period cell phone.

The looks of Koenig cars can be polarizing, I for one like the monochromatic scheme in something other than white. No one can argue the exclusiveness of these nor their outrageous cost when new. Lots of bidding has this one up to $28,000 with the reserve not met or about quadruple what a decent standard 560SEC will cost you.
