The W126 was a series of flagship vehicles for Mercedes-Benz. Debuted in September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 range. The W126 was the second generation to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 was initially offered as straight-6, V8, and turbo diesel engine saloon cars. In September 1981, a two-door Coupé version of the W126 was introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, capacious and powerful. The W126 S-Class sported a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company's line-up. The W126 line also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental restraint systems, seatbelt pre-tensioners and traction control system.
