The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a timeless symbol of power and elegance. With its big V8, A/C interior, and deep black presentation, a heavy hitter like this 1990 Mercedes 560 SEL long-wheelbase sedan is a great vintage way to still show that you\'re at the very top of the hierarchy.
Few cars have a more commanding road presence than an S-Class Mercedes, and the black has a great glossy presentation. In typical German fashion, the design is restrained and the clean lines minimize the car\'s size, but there\'s plenty of elegance in the details. This includes how there\'s a bright trim line to separate the black from the lower gray paint, and there\'s even pinstriping and painted side mirrors that coordinate with this. It makes for a thoughtful total package. So while you may find the occasional signs of this sedan being enjoyed as a luxury cruiser, it still knows how to make an entrance.
Inside, the S-Class got every luxury and convenience item Mercedes engineers could imagine in 1990. The power adjustable black leather buckets are supple and supportive. Intricately stitched door panels feature a matching material, and the burled walnut here and on the center console warms up the atmosphere nicely. This exceptional condition of the interior is a reminder of Mercedes build quality and reaffirms this car\'s level of superior care. The back seat even has limo-like legroom and looks nearly untouched. As a true luxury machine, there are plenty of great features such as a sunroof, power locks, cruise control, power steering, power windows, and automatic A/C climate control. Plus, the radio has been upgraded to a modern AM/FM/CD stereo. Mercedes also utilized the S-Class as the showcase for their latest safety pieces, so you also get features not often seen on classic of this age, like the dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes. Big, clear instruments are a hallmark of M-B cars, and the whole experience behind the wheel is like piloting a first-class luxury liner.
Power comes from a 5.6-liter V8: it\'s the 560 in 560 SEL. This was the big motor from Mercedes at the time, and so it makes this S-Class truly top-of-the-line. There\'s a deep well of torque to offer quick performance from a standstill, and the effortless feeling continues all the way until you hit speeds only legal on the Autobahn. It\'s also legendary for its durability, and this is believed to be the original motor. The four-speed automatic transmission is the perfect companion to flex its German muscles when it wants, and then it settles back into overdrive luxury immediately. The fully independent suspension soaks up bumps like a hovercraft, and the four-wheel disc brakes give you firm control.
