For many, the W116 S-Class epitomizes Mercedes’ reputation for cost-no-object engineering, reliability, and tank-like build quality. It also helped pioneer technologies like electronic anti-lock brakes and a reinforced passenger cell with impact-absorbing crumple zones.
This sensational 1975 450 SE is quite special and has had nearly €20k spent on it in the last few years.
Although the car scores excellently in all areas, its stunning bare metal respray in the beautiful shade of light metallic blue is a work of art and compliments the chrome trim and perfectly refurbished Mexican-Hat alloys and black interior.
The paint job isn’t just superficial either as the entire underside of the car has been properly undersealed and painted, too.
As you would expect, the car has been impeccably maintained mechanically, too. Along a recent major service, the entire braking and suspension systems were overhauled and refreshed while the engine also received new seals and gaskets throughout.
Nothing has been left untouched and the result is a car that looks and drives like new.
This really is a beautiful example of a 450 SE and ticks all the boxes with retro looks, reliability and style.
