    FS: 1991 SEC, Bornite/Cream-Beige, 7.5kmi, $52K current bid - BAT (New Jersey)

    On BAT, a 1991 SEC with very low miles, 7,509 miles, and a rare Bornite color. Current bid is at $52,000.

    Vin # WDBCA45E5MA565963

    Appears to be currently located in New Jersey, but with an Illinois title.

    Great looking SEC... looks like a time capsule, owner acquired it in 2017, wonder what he paid for it?

    I usually love that color, but I'm not sure I like it on that car.

    It has pinstripes. That's a deal breaker.

    I agree. It seems to be worn better by the W140/W124/W201 generations.

    This Bornite c126 does not look as good because the bornite Latvian E500 was uniformly Bornite on both the upper sheetmetal and the lower rockers. On this c126, the rockers are a medium/dark grey. Even the bornite 500E from madrid looks better.... the madrid 500E had painted metal uppers amd light grey lower rockers, as opposed to medium/dark.

    To me the color takes away from the lines of the car. On the W124 this color accentuates the lines.
