The W126 was the flagship series 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'. It was initially offered with straight-six, V8 and turbo diesel engine saloon cars but in September 1981, a two-door coupé version 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.
This example is presented in light metallic blue with blue velour interior and comes with an electric sunroof and air conditioning. Accompanying the car is a history file containing various invoices for work carried out. The car was resprayed about ten years ago and the brakes were reconditioned in 2018, there is an invoice in the file for £2,000 showing this. This luxury coupé is presented in good order and has only covered a mere 1,000 miles in the last ten years.
