The 2nd generation Mercedes Benz S class was the longest running S class ever, in production from 1979 to 1991. The W126 series introduced a range of light alloy V8 engines and a wind tunnel developed shape significantly improved fuel consumption.
The Coupe version, the C126, featured elegant pillarless styling with seating for 4. Initially available in two versions, the 380 SEC and 500 SEC, the big Benz coupé enjoyed effortless performance as they were powered by single-overhead cam V8 engines with Bosch electronic fuel injection and a four-speed automatic transmission.
At the 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show three new models were unveiled, the 420 SEC, 500 SEC and a new flagship badged the 560 SEC.
Highlights of this example:
This Mercedes Benz is the top of the range 560 sec and was first delivered on the 10th April 1991 from Cargo Motors Rissik street Johannesburg and has only covered 158 850 km since. This Mercedes Benz has been in current ownership since 2016 and when acquired had a high quality respray as the original signal red colour had faded.
This is a great opportunity to own a flagship Mercedes Benz of its time and a desirable modern classic in very good condition.
