One of Mercedes’ legendary cars. The W116 450SEL 6.9 shocked the world when new with its outrageous 6.9-litre displacement giving this large, decidedly unsporting saloon car supercar rivalling performance, with just a subtle ‘6.9’ badge to signify its intent. Beloved by F1 drivers of the day and a regular star of the big screen, the 6.9 was the ultimate saloon car of the late 70s. It combined brawn with sophistication in its hydro pneumatic suspension, dry-sumped, fuel-injected engine, carrying on from what the 300SEL 6.3 started but in a more complete, civilised package.
This 6.9 was supplied new in the UK in May ’78, finished in Midnight Blue with Mushroom leather interior. It is on the road and MoT’d and would happily drive anywhere. There has been a lot of money spent on the car over the last four years ensuring it is solid underneath and mechanically sound and reliable. And it has been regularly driven and enjoyed.
This work has included all new brake calipers, flexible hoses, lines and discs and pads, plus a new exhaust system and a rebuilt fuel pump pack. In 2016 extensive repairs were made to the underside so that aspect of the car is now completely solid. Inside the seats have been recovered in new leather (original seat covers come with the car) and the carpeting replaced.
The engine runs well (aside from a slight exhaust manifold blow) and the hydro pneumatic suspension works correctly, does not sink and provides an excellent ride.
The body has corrosion to most panels and would benefit from restoration, however the car comes with a set of good replacement panels including a new bonnet and good doors and boot lid.
Whilst this is a project, it benefits from having much of the mechanical side already addressed and can be driven and enjoyed prior to commencing the restoration. Right hand drive 6.9s are rare, iconic cars so this offers the potential for a very rewarding project indeed.
