Footnotes

  • With each successive generation of Mercedes-Benz cars, the Stuttgart manufacturer maintains its tradition of offering the very finest automobiles across a wide range of classes. Luxuriously appointed, high-performance coupés and cabriolets have always functioned as the company's flagship models, and the continuance of this highly successful policy resulted in the introduction of the 500SEC and 600SEC in 1992. Debuted at the North American International Auto Show, Detroit in February and the Geneva Salon in March, the duo was based on the top-of-the-range 'S-Class' models introduced the previous year. The pair shared the same new bodyshell and were powered by an all-new 6.0-litre 48-valve V12 engine in the latter's case, while the former continued to use its predecessor's 5.0-litre 32-valve V8. Standard equipment on these supremely well appointed automobiles included four-speed automatic transmission, traction control and pneumatically self-closing doors, while adaptive suspension was a stock feature of the 600SEC (optional on the 500SEC). Both were electronically limited to a maximum speed of 155mph, surely fast enough for most mortals. In 1994 Mercedes-Benz changed the model designations of the 500SEC/600SEC to S500/S600 and again in 1998 when they became known as the CL500/CL600. Mechanically the duo remained unchanged.
    This S600 coupé comes with its original purchase invoice for £88,000, this eye-watering figure reflecting the fact that these cars came 'fully loaded' as standard, with very few options. Noteworthy features include automatic transmission, a sunroof and fully colour co-ordinated bodywork. 'L818 XVV' has had two owners from new and currently displays a total of 86,000 miles on the odometer. Representing a rare opportunity to acquire one Mercedes-Benz's most highly desired Gran Turismos of recent years at a fraction of its cost when new, the car is offered with partial Mercedes-Benz service history, current MoT and Swansea V5 registration document.
