1990 Mercedes Benz 560 SEC AMG

I absolutely love this car – big coupe, black on black, widebody AMG.  It looks like something that an evil villain would drive.  This is a pretty rare car from MB and I’m glad I spotted one around Los Angeles. I’m also happy to say that I’ve seen the owner driving this car around – and as we all know here at LACS – cars are meant to be driven!

Some info I scooped from carscoops.com (go check their site out):

This original 560 SEC 6.0 AMG Wide Body is arguably one of the most desirable high-performance AMGs ever created. Not only because it’s believed that fewer than 50 units were built, but also due to the company’s expertise, which transformed the big Benz into a unique creation.
The car is powered by a bore-out 6.0-Litre V8, designed and built at Affalterbach, which uses an AMG custom quad-cam head with four valves per cylinder, producing twice the torque at half the engine speed of the original 5.6-litre Mercedes-Benz engine. The total outpout is 385 hp and it is transmitted to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic gearbox.
Moreover, the tuner’s signature continues on the outside that’s oh-so-80s, as the car was fitted with distinctive front and rear fenders and door panels that allowed much wider wheels to be fitted.
