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'. The W126 was initially offered with straight-six, V8, and turbo diesel engine saloon cars but 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.
Registered new on 1st August 1990 this 500 SEC is presented in black coachwork and looks superb. The paintwork is good and retains a deep shine and the interior presents very well. Very few examples are offered in black making this a very rare sight indeed. Supplied with old MoT test certificates and the UK V5 registration document the Mercedes is offered without reserve and is a superb opportunity to acquire a nicely presented example.
