History & current state

Here we have a truly remarkable piece that saw history at the frontlines.

This armored 450 SEL 6.9 was originally delivered to Spain’s Royalty (Casa Real), as stated by the official documents issued by Casa Real.

It’s an armored 450 SEL 6.9 built by Armalite specially for the Casa Real of Spain. Armalite’s armor was outstanding for the era given that they featured kevlar composites in opaque areas.

Due to its superior technology, Armalite’s units came off the shop weighing way less than regular ‘sonderschutz’ 6.9s, also called ‘WerksPanzer’, which used ballistic steel instead.

It also features the extremely rare rear-mounted sunroof, as shown in the picture where the current King of Spain, S.M.R. Felipe VI, stands up in the car during a parade back when he was a little kid.

The car has been very well maintained as could be expected from a royal maintenance schedule. This W116 has also been recently resprayed to its former glory and the upholstery is currently being fully restored.
