Another AMG SEC widebody up for auction - 1990 6ltr 32V

Post by kimrh » Sat 30 Dec, 2017 11:40 pm

Here we go again with another high profile big annual auction event in Florida USA -
This time another full spec AMG widebody SEC is going to auction on Sunday 14th Jan at Mecum's Kissimmee FL annual event.
It is Lot U55
1990 040 black with black interior - full spec (no mini TV though)

Said 6ltre x 32V with stated $40k in recent services by Renntech with no mileage clocked up since it left the workshop - stated 56,000 actual kms on the clock.

Looks like a Japan import into USA with 300kmh speedo face and the badge below the aircon panel.
Pics look good if any indication (high res below link)

Appears to be a collectors car or perhaps recently imported by a high end dealer for re-sale given the price these are now going for in USA at auction

Anyway it is the perfect color/interior combo and 32V engine to inspire some collector to go chasing it no doubt and interesting to find out what it sells for assuming it reaches reserve price.

Anyone recognize it from the past?

Interesting there is no AMG badge on the boot. Same as the pics of mine when it was picked up with no AMG badge although it did have a painted 500SEC badge. I figure the first owner worked out it didn't do anything for the power/handling and overall style so why bother putting it on there... nothing to prove etc. Mine of course has one stuck on there now - I would pull it off except for fear of pulling paint off with it!
