Description

The Mercedes-Benz W126 model was the successor to the earlier W116 line, and the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name designating Sonderklasse or ‘special class’.
The W126 debuted a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company’s line up. The model range also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag (supplemental restraint systems), seatbelt pre-tensioners, and traction control. Six years of development resulted in the W126 model being introduced at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September 1979, with design work on the coupé beginning immediately after.
Because the appearance differed from the rest of the Mercedes-Benz fleet at that time, some people did not appreciate the design at its launch; compared to its predecessor, the new model had a sleeker, lower profile look, with more aerodynamic qualities than previous models. For the first time, a Mercedes-Benz saloon was not equipped with traditional chrome bumpers; polyurethane deformable bumpers were used, and visually aligned with body panels.
This top of the range long wheelbase 560 SEL model has been part of a significant Mercedes collection for a number of years, having covered c. 114,000 miles from new. The S-Class model offers levels of quality and comfort still relevant today, and none more so than this example.
