Mercedes 500SEC (C126) 1981-1985

Post by AdamYip » Thu Dec 14, 2017 3:45 am

This was my dream car when it was released back in the early 80's when I was a kid. I remembered having a white 500SEC AMG made by Matchbox at the time. This is an early version C126 that I got some time ago, but never photographed. I've swapped the wheel covers with the alloy wheels on a W126 500SE I got made by Whitebox, as I felt that the coupe should have alloy wheels. It seems to be quite well equipped, with the airbag steering wheel and sunroof.

A car that screamed wealth when it came out. I have always liked these.

Very nice, a car that is elegant and expensive but in no way vulgar.

The wheels from the Whitebox 500SE looked a bit odd, so I put a set of alloy wheels made by Minichamps.
