This second generation S-Class has a black paint exterior with dark silver rocker panels and chrome plated bumpers and fender arches. It has a chrome grille adorned with a Mercedes-Benz three pointed star. Large flush halogen headlights come equipped with washers and are framed by wraparound amber turn lights. The centre of the hood is raised and the side view mirrors have body coloured housings. The taillamps on the 560SEL are fluted to maintain their visibility when dirty. The trunk lid is adorned with a three pointed star and a 560SEL emblem. This 560SEL rides on chrome-finished 15” telephone dial-style wheels wrapped Uniroyal tires with four-wheel ABS disc brakes in behind. The 560SEL is 207 inches long, 72 inches wide, and 56 inches high, with a 121 inch wheelbase and a curb weight of 4,100 lbs. The seller notes a scuff on the right rear bumper that has been touched up and the paint on the roof is faded. The seller has indicated that recent maintenance on the vehicle includes the replacement of brake rotors and pads, the transmission cooler line, various suspension parts, the battery, and the fuel filter.


The 560SEL interior is black with burled walnut wood trim on the doors, dash, and console. Seating for five is upholstered in premium leather, and the door inserts are heat pressed. Both front and rear seats are powered and heated (an optional upgrade) with memory, and the windows are powered. This sedan comes equipped with cruise control, air conditioning, a rear window defogger, and a manual sunroof. Both front and rear passengers have access to arm rests and storage pockets. A black four-spoke Mercedes-Benz steering wheel fronts an analog instrumentation panel with a 260 km/hr speedometer at the centre. Fuel economy, fuel level, oil level and temperature gauges are placed to the left, and a 7K rpm tachometer is at the right with an inset analog clock. The steering column is electronically adjustable. Further convenience and safety features include courtesy lights, a theft deterrent system, dual airbags, traction control, and seat-belt pretensioners. An aftermarket 6-CD changer has been installed and incorporated into the original fully functioning Becker radio.
