Regularly & Meticulously Maintained, Always stored indoors,Continuing in the tradition of the groundbreaking 300 SEL 6.3, Mercedes-Benz sought to raise the bar with a low-production 6.9-liter version of its W116 450 SEL luxury flagship. Each hand-assembled dry sump engine would propel these cars to 60 mph in seven seconds, with a 140 mph top speed. Built on a separate assembly line, these elite cars were identifiable only by their special burl-wood dashboards and succinct “6.9” badging on the trunk. With just 1,816 sold in the US, the luxurious 6.9 was called “a $50,000 exercise in going fast” by legendary automotive journalist David E. Davis Jr., and it quickly became an object of desire for the wealthy and famous.First time offered for sale. Must see $22,500.
