1990 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL

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.

On offer today we have a super low mileage example with just one owner from new. Showing a mere 44,700 kilometers from new, the 560 is completely original, has never been repainted and the blue leather interior is spotless. This must be one of the best examples on the market today.
