Mercedes 450SEL 6.9 in London. A few weeks ago I spotted 450SEL 6.9 at Classic Car Club London in Old Street, London. It was a coincident to find this place at Old Street, while I was walking I spotted the GMC left hand drive van and entered the place. And it turned out to be a membership based classic car club and they have a very wide range of vehicles. For today, I will talk about the Mercedes 450SEL 6.9!
450SEL 6.9 is the S-Class from end 1970s and beginning 1980s. The car on the photos is a US version with extended bumpers and orange side lamps. 450SEL 6.9 is a true classic from Mercedes, actually a classic from Mercedes is quite rare but they managed to do :)
The uniqueness is emerged from its 6.9-lt engine with 286 HP and 549 Nm of torque with 4-speed automatic gearbox and limited rear differential. For today world, these numbers are not something unusual but I am talking about end of 197os! At those years Dallas was the legendary TV-Series and mobile phones are beyond science fiction. So, Mercedes created a car that was beyond its era.
So, if you wish drive this car you need to become a member of the Classic Car Club London. Or try to buy one, which technically impossible, because it is very rare. And people who own them does not wish to sell them!
