I'm a w126 560SEC 1986 2nd hand owner with original 24.500km. About the specs, it sounds strange perhaps the US models are less powerfull than the EUR ones. Mine is 220KW which is arround 301HP. In my manual, it says that it exists 2 types of engines, one with 200KW and the other one with 220KW. The difference is with the compression 9:1 and 10:1 respectivly. About the performance, I did several tests from 0-100km/h and it turns arround 5.4 and 5.6secs, the sensation in the car is amazing! I also had a race with an Audi S4 that one of my friends was driving and it turned out that the 560SEC is faster...
The car is great! You have enough power to do wathever overtaking you may dream of. The engine is quiet and doesn't consume too much 15L/100km.
The inside sitting is not as confortable as in a SEL one but at least you are stuck in it with the air baloons in the "chair".
Anyway I must say that it is one of the best cars MB has ever built!
