Very rare white 1985 AMG 1000SEL 32v 5sp Getrag

Gee this amazing and very rare SEL that was placed on the market last year in Sweden by a collector (who owned it for 10yrs) and eventually purchased by a German based Mercedes Collector is a unique sight for sore eyes - especially as it is non restored original condition example.
I do not know what the sale price was as it would have ended up being a private sale.

First ordered via Mercedes AMG in Germany by Prince Nawwaf of house of Saudi in Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia back in the day with full loaded specs.
(All work done to order at the original AMG factory in Germany)

Listed specs in the sale advert-

-The car is in mint condition and has never been refurbished.

-Mileage is very low, around 55000Km

-AMG pearl white leather interior including dash and all kinds of surfaces wrapped in leather.

-AMG recaro seats electrically adjusted

-AMG exhaust system (with some repairs)

-AMG “DOHC”

-AMG Getrag 5-speed transmission

-AMG exterior bodykit

-AMG all trims painted white

-AMG all badges goldplated (still in good shape)

-AMG 16” penta wheels with goldplated wheelbolts.

-AMG speedometer, white bezels.

-Equipped with Mercedes-benz or AMG hydro-pneumatic suspension system. Fully functional so car can be lowered and heightened to your liking by adjusting a lever.

-Original high-end stereo from Nakamichi including rear mounted sub-base system

-Trunk also wrapped in white(textile)

-Additional rear-view mirror (probably for the Prince’s bodyguard)

-All original door and window curtains still in great shape!

Enjoy a one-off example
It was established the engine was 5litre block (probably a 5.4litre version)

That "Space 1999" interior is pretty confronting.

The steering wheel seems not to have worn well. Perhaps all that power caused a lot of white-knuckle rides and sweaty palms.
I am a little surprised there are not some brown stains on the seats - particularly if it was used on Saudi roads, which in my experience are crazy in any car.

On the other hand ... the leather colour has a slight touch of yellow ...
