When new in 1988, the SEC was the top of the range Mercedes-Benz Coupe and supplied in limited numbers. This particular, UK-spec 420 SEC was supplied by London Road Garage of Romford finished in Pajett Red with Light Ivory hide upholstery. Today it has covered just 38,000 miles and is in exceptional condition having been professionally stored as part of this very significant private collection since 2011. High quality examples of the SEC are now recognised as the next emerging classic and we would suggest that this is one of the finest examples currently available.
Prior to the sale, this vehicle will have an oil and filter service with fresh fluids and be MOT'd, road tested and inspected.
