Lorinser, like AMG, have a long-standing relationship with the Stuttgart firm. Taking standard factory models and breathing on them. Offering various stages of advanced tuning and body enhancements. For 80 years now, Lorinser have flown discreetly below the radar, an authorised reseller for private and commercial vehicles with their centre of operations based in Winnenden, a stones throw from Mercedes-Benz HQ in Stuttgart. In the 1980s, Lorinser Sports Service cemented their world-wide reputation in the world of innovation, design and technical high performance when Mercedes-Benz began to offer the public quick road cars. Lorinser, with engine-building at its core, was then able to enhance these models and the Lorinser boot badge became an extremely desirable asset.
The 560 SEC has, already, an attractive profile; its sporting coup design was the flagship model of the Sonderklasse or Special class offering power and technical innovation. Wind tunnel testing produced a model sleeker and more aerodynamic than previous models, this combined with powerful but efficient V8 engines made the 560 SEC car of the year at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1981. Regrettably the previous owner has mislaid this cars history up until recently. The governments MoT test website shows that it passed tests in 2006, 2009 and 2018 with no advisories. The car has been thoroughly checked over by a local garage and given a clean bill of health, described as good throughout with excellent paintwork. Additionally, it will benefit from a fresh MoT test certificate immediately prior to the sale as well as a comprehensive service from main agents, Mercedes-Benz Temple Fortune.
