Last month, RM Sotheby’s presented a 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC AMG 6.0 as a part of its upcoming Youngtimer Collection, now returning with another iteration of the iconic wide-body ride, a 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL 6.0 AMG donning a beastly 32v DOHC “Hammer” engine.

The new listing comes in a stunning Blue-Black metallic paint with tonal Black leather interior, fronting a variety of rare European-spec AMG features throughout. Offered up in immaculate condition with roughly 108,000 kilometers clocked, what makes this specific wide-body unique is its upgraded engine, which converted an original AMG V8 into a 32v DOHC “Hammer.” When introduced, these engine-rocking vehicles were the first four-door rides to break the 300km/h barrier, producing a staggering 375 brake horsepower that effectually pushed its chassis to the limits.

You can check out the piece of automotive history above. If you’re interested in purchasing it for yourself, RM Sotheby’s will be auctioning it off in the near future with an expected sale price between €100.000 and €140.000 EUR (approximately $112,000 USD to $157,000 USD).
