The mighty 560SEL, the Mercedes "S" class (Sonderklasse) flagship for 1988. Powered by the fearsome 5.6 liter V8 producing 300bhp (220kw) the car could do 0 - 100kmh in 7.2 seconds, presumably with the executive in the back remaining blisfully unaware that his chauffer was having a fang!

The 1988 model lineup was a further refinement to the "S" class sedans first introduced in 1979. Modifications had included the front and rear spoilers being integrated into the bumper design, and the suspension had been modified to provide better handling, safety and riding comfort.

The standard equipment list was extensive, and included such features as new flush halogen headlights, hydropneumatic level control, electronically adjustable steering column, ABS and SRS systems and even removeable footrests for the rear passengers.

Perhaps too recent to be collectable, depreciation has seen them fall within reach of the masses - provided of course the family budget can support the 560SEL's liking for the bowser.
