The S-Class has always been the epitome of performance, comfort and safety, setting benchmarks within the luxury saloon and limousine segments whilst also bringing new levels of technological innovation and product refinement to the industry as a whole. The W126, in its quest to deliver maximum comfort and outstanding safety, pioneered driver and passenger airbags with acceleration skid control, making it the first series production vehicle in the world to meet offset crash requirements. The W126 was also the first production car to use safety belt pretensioners and to fit rear passenger seatbelts.
This top of the range 500SEL is presented in blue green and complemented with a grey velour interior. Having covered just 66,421 miles from new, this example has been well maintained throughout.

Offered at no reserve this low mileage Mercedes Benz would benefit from a little time and investment but is ready to be enjoyed immediately.
