Description:

1992 Mercedes-Benz 600-Series 600SEL V12


1992 Mercedes 600SEL V12 W-140 Super Car

Large, Majestic, Domineering, Powerful. All words that clearly describe this car. I’ve also heard it called a Rolls Royce on steroids. It is a 1992 Mercedes Benz 600SEL V12. To Mercedes fans, this is known as the W140 S-Class sedan body style. It features an arctic white exterior with black soft leather interior and has 132,000 km or approx. 85,000 miles.

The car was originally delivered to Japan as many of these were back in the day. Includes original sales brochure from 1992 along with Japanese gum wrapper found in the back seat (cool item) as well as an original oil painting that was painted for this car. VIN # is WDB1400571A044930.

This was the true flag ship of the Mercedes line and it has a massive 6.0 liter V12 under the hood producing 406 HP. Relax behind the wheel as you put the V12 through its paces or spread out in the spacious back seat and let someone else drive while you read a novel. Either way, there are not many automotive experiences like this one.

I can’t explain why these cars have depreciated so much but that is the reality. What was once a $135,000 in 1992 is now a sub $20k car with reasonable mileage. Seems like the best deal in town. Please send your offers and we’ll try to work something out.

I have consulted with an AMG expert who did some research for me (very generous, thank you). He concluded that this is a 600SEL with AMG body kit, wheels, exhaust and badging but is not an AMG from the factory. Don’t want to mis-lead anyone.

History of this car:

This Mercedes was originally delivered to Japan. It lived there until 2007 when the previous owner purchased the car and brought it to Canada. The current owner purchased the car in 2012. During the current owners ownership, he had it maintained with oil changes and other recommended dealer services. In addition, he was a mechanic and was able to maintain the car for certain items. A new battery was added in 2018. Also, new tires were added in 2014 (see invoice in pics section). Car has not been driven much since 2014 so tires are like new.

At present, the car is being offered by the widow of the current owner as he passed away in Dec. 2017. The car is in very good running condition. Dash gauges are not working.

Caveat: Since the present owner is now the widow of the deceased owner, she does not know very much about the current condition of the car. The nearest MB dealership is 5 hours away so she is not able and willing to get it there to be inspected. Therefore, the car is being sold in “as is” and “where is” condition. Please bid accordingly. All shipping, customs, duties etc. will be the responsibility of the buyer.
