Mercedes-Benz did not have the AMG brand before 2005. At that time, Mercedes was in cooperation with AMG for post-sales modifications only. The 1989 Mercedes 560 SEC AMG 6.0 Widebody was also one of the works that took luxury and technology to the next level.
The Mercedes 560 SEC AMG 6.0 Widebody was produced at about 50 of that time, and one of those cars is now on sale at Auto Leitner. The rarity and performance of the car took it to a more expensive point than today’s supercars.
The car features a naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V8 engine that produces 380 horsepower and 555 Nm of torque. The four-speed automatic transmission transfers power to the rear wheels. In the stock form of the vehicle, the AMG has modified it with a more powerful V8 engine, although it has a 5.6-liter V8.
With a top speed of 285 km / h, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 6 seconds. AMG also provided a wide-body modification and aerodynamic improvements for this model. In addition, the suspension has been improved thanks to the performance springs. The 17-inch three-piece wheels feature larger disc brakes and an AMG exhaust provides a performance-like look.

Equipped with the full AMG package, the car features fully electronic, adjustable Recaro racing seats, walnut wood trim, AMG steering and chrome door sills. Both driver and front passenger seats also offer memory function and lumbar support for comfortable use.
