1987 Mercedes C126 560SEC 6.0 AMG Widebody

Another ultra-rare AMG widebody on the register, and this one as of 2014 has the lowest mileage of them all, at 14,000 miles.  For the full list of AMGs on the register, click here. Like most of the cars we come across, this one appears to have been looked after very well. This particular car was last seen on car-from-uk.com, with an undisclosed sale price. At the time of sale, the seller made the following comments about the car:

"Built on a made to order basis by the famous AMG  AG of Germany. It is unknown exactly how many of these legendary cars were built however many AMG enthusiasts and Benz collector believes there were about 75 Wide-Body built per year from 1986 to 1991 which in total 375 cars. These 6L DOHC engines were truly ahead of its time. while top German and Italian sports cars where pushing 300hp these AMG. were packing massive power 385hp/283KW and 417lb/ft of torque. The modification AMG did to theses SEC did not stop with only the motor. they also modified the body with wide panels and aerodynamic for better performance the suspension. power train. exhaust system. brake system and tires and rims also got their share of modification. While all these modifications add.  elegance and style to the interior was also upgraded with the Recaro seats. leather headliner. extra burl wood for the doors and other areas. With all these modifications comes a high price tag the price for these cars back then was $200k USD and up.

From the 375 AMG built during that era there is about 50 or less survived today. and this AMG is one of them with only 14k miles on it fully documented this AMG is perfect car to collect. I have been collecting these magnificent cars for over 15 years and in the past 5 years these cars are doubling and tripling in value. many Benz collectors believe the value of these cars will go up to the mid $200k in the next five years."
