The Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 is the high-performance top-of-the-line version of the W116 model S-Class luxury saloon. It was built by Daimler-Benz in Stuttgart, Germany and based on the long-wheelbase version of the W116 chassis introduced in 1972. The model was generally referred to in the company's literature as the "6.9", to separate it from the regular 450SEL. It featured the largest engine of any non-American production car post WWII.
The 6.9 was first shown to the motoring press at the Geneva Auto Show in 1974, and produced between 1975 and 1981 in extremely limited numbers. It was billed as the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz car line, and the successor to Mercedes-Benz's original high-performance sedan, the 300SEL 6.3. The 6.9 also has the distinction of being among the first vehicles ever produced with optional electronically controlled anti-lock brakes, first introduced by Mercedes-Benz and Bosch in 1978. The 6.9's successor — the top of range 560 SEL — continued the 6.9's self-leveling hydropneumatic suspension as an extra-cost option.
The "6.9" we have to offer is simply stunning to drive, and very quick even against modern high performance cars of today.
Finished in Magnetitblau metallic with the expensive optional velour interior which really adds to to beauty of this 450SEL.
It has covered 95k effortless kilometers since it was first registered in 1979. I have recently given it a new MOT.
