Australian delivered, all original, outstanding condition, full service history. The car is in Sydney but on QLD registration, I can deliver with either NSW rego or as is.
This is the first of the in house AMG vehicles which were essentially hand built supercars - astronomic money when new given the extent of the engineering and features fitted.
This example had long term ownership with a Mercedes mechanic and runs faultlessly and is great fun to drive. It has its standard exhaust and the V8 sound great. The interior has a few small imperfections but it's in outstanding overall condition, and nothing needs attention. Easily get in and drive anywhere, and it is ridiculously fast. long registration - happy to do NSW or QLD for the buyer.
A must inspect car for the serious buyer, at a realistic price. It's a true modern classic and will likely only increase in value as its recognition as such a special vehicle grows. These early in house AMG cars are really gaining momentum.
More information and images coming soon.
The last of the over-engineered Mercedes cars, and surely one of Bruno Sacco’s finest designs, the C140 is the king of the S-Class coupes. There are never more than a handful of these for sale at any one time, owing to the C140s very low production numbers (and particularly low sales numbers in Australia, having a price tag of nearly $300,000 when new).
This CL500 was built in June 1997 and is finished in Smoke Silver, with Mushroom Nappa leather interior. The car has been well looked after, and has low k’s for its age. This example is particularly special because it has the very rare “Leather Exclusive” factory option (Code 515 on the data plate). This option provides for two tone mushroom leather trim, a leather trimmed dashboard, door card and rear card arm rests, console and sun visors, with suede headliner. The Leather Exclusive option is usually applied to selected V12 coupes, and is rarely specified on the 500 models.
Being a later series “CL” badged car, it features several specifications not present on the 1995 and earlier C140 vehicles, including the upgraded (non-biodegradable) wiring harness, 5-speed transmission, side airbags, front and rear “Parktronic” parking sensors and updated tail lights (just to name a few).
The original Smoke Silver paint is in great condition for the car’s age, and all panels on the car are straight, with no rust anywhere to be seen. The seller is only the third owner, and its condition suggests that it has been kept undercover its whole life. Inside, the leather is in good condition throughout. Importantly, the driver’s seat bolsters are in great shape, and there are no serious tears / cuts anywhere in the leather fabric. The timber trim accents (which appear to be the “Chestnut” option), are all immaculate and stand out nicely against the mushroom trim.
Mechanically the car is excellent, runs very smoothly with no oil leaks or problem known of. It has won multiple awards at concourse events over the years, and the current owner has retained all of those records as part of the car’s file. The car comes with its two original keys, plus the original “Swiss Card Key” which was issued to owners when these were new.

One of only 1,052 E86 M coupes built in right hand drive (and one of only 103 delivered new to Australia), this example is all original and hasn't event hit 100,000 km in its 14 years. It is of course fitted with the legendary S54 engine (the same as fitted to the M3 CSL), providing extraordinary power to weight (252kw in a car that weighs only 1,395kg!).
The car is in immaculate condition, with a full service history, and finished in its original Space Grey Metallic, with black trim. Fewer and fewer original clean examples come up for sale these days, and prices are expected to get stronger for these rare “M” cars, which already have a big global following.
There are very few currently available for sale in Australia. There is nothing to spend on this example - buy to enjoy, or as a modern classic investment. Inspections welcome, for further information about this very unique collector car, please login to contact Anthony by clicking the “contact seller” button at the top of this page.
This rare Australian delivered 560SEC was advertised on carsales Australia in May 2020. A fair bit of work needed to get it back to its former glory, but compared to some of the prices being asked for these AU delivered 560s now, this is somewhat of a bargain at 18K. There are some immaculate examples asking over 50, which may be a bit premature, although we expect that to be the norm in the coming decade.
Up for sale in South Africa is this very original 1275 E, with only 40,000 original kilometres. This car is in excellent original condition, and it would be hard to find another like it. Its burnt orange paint presents extremely well for original 80s paint, and inside it's been hardly used.
Introduced in 1980, the 1275E model was a popular early 80s mini, selling approximately 10,000 units over its production run which ended at the same time as local South African production of the mini ended. Fitted standard with the larger capacity 1275cc engine, producing 42kw, these cars are a comfortable classic ride with plenty of power considering their light weight.
This is an interesting piece of Mini history, and South African motoring history which we hope to see preserved by the next lucky owner.

This C126 was advertised on Ebay Australia in May 2020. High Ks but asking bit money with a $45,000 starting bid. A sign of things to come perhaps, as there's anoyther on Ebay Australia asking 60K. The 560 is relatively scarce in Australia, less so in the USA, but prices have really started going mad for old Mercs in Aus. This seems to be a very well looked after car, and a true modern classic.
