We offer this 1991 Mercedes Benz 560SEC for sale in our Atlanta Showroom. This is the one they call Dr. Feelgood! Stay with me, this Mercedes has the triple crown…It was car was hand built in Germany, Clean Car Fax, and is documented as the personal car of Mick Mars, the lead guitarist from Motley Crue. We have the registration, license plate “MARS8DZ” and documentation. It that is not enough of a proof of the celebrity ownership, the “Crue” keychain and Mick Marz is embroidered in the floor mats. Let’s put aside the fact this car was owned by the lead guitarist of one the biggest rockin’ bands of all time, this MB is an ICON of the 80’s and 90’s. Does anyone remember this MB in the movie Roadhouse, well this is the car that was driven. If there is one marque closely identified with the life-style of a contemporary Super Star, it must be Mercedes-Benz. Of course, Mercedes-Benz knows precisely what it's up to. It is Mercedes' avowed intention that these 5.6-litre V8 projectiles should provide the very ultimate in up-market prestige motoring, appealing to the sort of customers whose standards of taste and discernment lead to only the best. Heart of the 560SEC is the well-proven light alloy V8 from To enhance the engine's freerunning characteristics, the crankshaft has eight counter-weights instead of six. With its multi-functional ignition and mixture formation system, the 5547cc unit produces a healthy 300bhp at 5000 rpm, sufficient to propel the coupes aerodynamically superb profile at over a genuine 140 mph. As you slip in behind the wheel of the 560SEC you are immediately conscious that this is a mixture to leave the occupants blissfully unaware that everything has it place, and I emphasize the word blissfully. The first reminder of the car's wide-ranging appeal comes when considering the driving position. Its range is quite remarkable. Make no mistake, although this is a two-door coupe, it has plenty of room for four people and all their luggage. Surveying the instruments from behind that steering wheel, there is no concession to the passage of time. Stylistic alterations to the instrumentation certainly form no part of the Mercedes-Benz credo. It is always welcomingly familiar ground for the driver. The fascia has a classic appeal. Dominating the scene is the 170 mph speedometer flanked on the right by the rev counter red-lined at 6,000 rpm and a small clock. On the left of the speedometer is another circular dial, segments of which provide gauges for fuel contents, oil pressure, water temperature. Below this binnacle is a battery of warning lights covering most of the auxiliary controls, bulb failures etc. The central console contains a superb sophisticated and reliable air conditioning system includes separate controls for each foot well in addition to six vents at various points across the walnut-trimmed fascia. Aside from the electrically adjustable seats, there are other aids to calm living incorporated into the 560SEC's basic internal specification. The arm which obligingly extends to "offer" you the seat belt, like some sort of mechanical valet, retreats unobtrusively if you decline to accept its offer within a fixed time. Visibility is terrific and all the minor secondary controls fall to hand easily. Cocooned within the insulated luxury of its high quality cabin, the 560SEC imbues a feeling of calm well-being even before the key has been turned in the ignition. A touch on the key and the subdued, reassuring throb of that V8 comes to life without the slightest hesitation. Unquestionably, it is one of the World's great cars. Not because it carries the three-pointed star on its radiator grille, not because of its superb performance and docility for a car of its size, not because of its high level of equipment. The Mercedes-Benz 560SEC earns its right to a slot close to the very pinnacle of automobile engineering because of the manner in which it combines a whole host of enviable traits, blending them into an exquisitely balanced package which radiates high production standards, superb engineering and a keen perception of what the discerning buyer really appreciates.
