1987 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 560 SEL 5.6 V8


A fist in a velvet glove


Nothing major has gone wrong; we just serviced her and she keeps going.

General Comments:

Car is truly beautiful, she has black exterior with grey leather interior.

For the kilometers on her clock, the 560 SEL puts a lot of other newer v8s to shame.

I raced a yellow CV8 Monaro, and at 190klms the Monaro was three to 4 cars behind, and could not overtake even though it was a manual. Don't they see the 560 badge or know it means "danger"?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
