1988 Benz 560 SEC AMG
History Built before AMG/Benz marriage so was sent to AMG for mods - then off to Japan as a custom order. I imported her in 2003 - inspectors over torqued the wheels but would not stand behind the misdeed, so $7000 later I had new replacement AMG wheels. But I do love driving her - great highway cruiser!
None, only the AMG body package done immediately post factory build


In-Car Entertainment
It needs to be upgraded but I also want to insure her as a Collector Vehicle so will remain stock

Under the Hood
I believe the AMG upgrade took the 5.6L V8 to about 315 hp.

Again, AMG upgrade

Wheel and Tire
I had to replace the AMG wheels because of stress cracks that went unnoticed - tires were done as well so she had new AMG wheels installed in 2003 ($1750 ea) as well as new Bridgestone Polesitter S2 ($600 ea) so by the time I got to drive her I not only paid for her, paid to import, but then another $10000 in wheels and tires - can't afford to sell her! HaHa!
Those tires have about 5k on them over the past 13 yrs, but they are shot! Mo money!
