1989 Mercedes-Benz S-Class SEL

In the late-80s, he heaviest of heavy-hitters was the Mercedes-Benz S-class, ith the dramatic 560 SEL long-wheelbase sedan at the very top of the hierarchy. Luxury machines like this very attractive bronze 1989 example could hammer the Autobahn all day at triple-digit speeds, oddling their occupants like no other car in the world. For a car that cost the equivalent of more than $100,000 when it was new, his is a great way to get incredible luxury at an incredible discount.Few cars have a more commanding road presence than an S-class Mercedes, nd you'll have no trouble cruising through traffic with this handsome sedan. It's probably wearing its original paint, nd it goes to show you what the best paint in the world can deliver, ecause it still looks great. Of course, ome of that is probably thanks to an enthusiastic owner, ut there's no denying that this car has led an easy life. The big sedan has style in spades, ith a formal profile and sleek lines that definitely announce that this big Benz takes no prisoners. In typical German fashion, he design is restrained and the clean lines minimize the car's size, ut there's no denying that this is a lot of sheetmetal hammering down the road. A few bits of chrome, ike the surround for the window opening emphasizes the car's best attributes, nd there's just no mistaking the big 3-pointed star up front that moves lesser traffic out of the way like a snow plow. Yes, t's 26 years old and there are a few wrinkles here and there, ut even a middle-aged Muhammad Ali was still formidable.Inside, he S-class got every luxury and convenience item Mercedes engineers could imagine in 1989. Power tan leather buckets are firm and supportive and in shockingly good condition considering the age and mileage on this heavy cruiser. Gorgeous door panels feature different materials and shapes that helped Mercedes break out of its cold, mpersonal interior look, nd the burled walnut on the center console warms it up inside nicely. Big, lear instruments are similar to those Mercedes always offered, nd there's a massive stereo system featuring a JVC AM/FM/CD head unit and speakers fitted throughout the interior. That console-mounted cell phone is a nod to the era in which this car ruled, aking for a kind of kitschy conversation piece today. Heated seats, utomatic climate control, ower windows, nd a giant trunk are all included, aking this a first-class luxury liner.The 5.6 liter V8 under the hood is one of Mercedes' most reliable units, apable of running for hundreds of thousands of miles with little more than basic maintenance. Torquey and smooth, t moves the big sedan with the effortless ease of an electric motor, nd the relentless push of torque makes it feel like it could accelerate forever. Beautifully maintained, he engine bay is spotless, rom the big aluminum air cleaner lid to all the hoses and wires that comprise what was, t the time, he world's most technically advanced automobile. Obviously, omeone loved this one and the maintenance means that it's still bulletproof reliable today. It's the same deal underneath, here there's a 4-speed automatic with syrupy smooth shifts and a fully independent suspension that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft.
