To be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at The Silverstone Classic Sale 2019 to be held at The Wing Building, Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom, NN12 8TN from July 26, 2019 to July 28, 2019. Guide price: £20000 - £30000. Top of the range W126 S-Class with 272-bhp from the 5.5-litre V8UK-supplied in right-hand drive and moved to Japan for a number of yearsReturned to the UK in 2009 with a warranted mileage of just 14,866 Joined a private collection in 2011Fully maintained, both in Japan and here. Current mileage just over 17,000  For decades, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been something of an automotive yardstick for technology. These luxury saloons have always represented the very best of the German marque's forward-thinking design with many world firsts debuting on an S-Class. In its homeland, this model is referred to as the "Sonderklasse," or Special-Class in English, and the W126 generation was very special indeed.Only the second generation of the car to officially carry the S-Class nameplate, the W126 succeeded the very popular W116. Launched in 1979 after six years in development, this was to be the car that would take Mercedes-Benz into the next decade and serve as the flagship for the three-pointed-star. Designers wanted the W126 to be the unquestionable champion in the areas of safety, technology, and efficiency and they managed to do that for over a decade. In 1990, the most expensive top of the W126 range was the 560 SEL, a veritable palace on wheels. It combined the super smooth 5.6-litre V8 and the long wheelbase of the SE range, meaning it competed directly with the Rolls-Royce Spirit of the day - both in terms of price and size.This particular right-hand drive car, finished in Arctic White, was supplied in June 1990 and after a spell out in Japan returned to these shores in 2009 with a warranted mileage of just 14,866. It has been fully maintained, both in Japan and here, up until 2011 when it was purchased as part of a special and unique collection. Since then, the mileage has risen to just over 17,000 and therefore must be one of the lowest mileage 560 SELs in the world today. These cars are now regarded as having the best build quality of any period of Mercedes-Benz production and are tipped as having the best investment potential for the future, and consequently, this rare car represents an opportunity not to be missed! Prior to the sale, this vehicle will have an oil and filter service with fresh fluids and be MOT'd, road tested and inspected.
