Description

"The W126 debuted in 1979 and was the second generation to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. It was initially offered as a saloon car with straight-six, V8 and turbo diesel engines. 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 model sported a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company's line-up. The W126 also included many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations. The first airbag supplemental restraint systems, seatbelt pre-tensioners and traction control system were added to the car’s specification.This well-presented model is offered in generally very good order throughout. Unlike many examples it has been used and maintained regularly throughout its life and was the subject of much restoration work in 2016. Since the restoration there have been no advisories listed on the MoT test certificates including the most recent which is valid until 30th January 2021. Powered by the 4.2 litre V8 this rare righthand drive 420SEC is reported to drive nicely and has recently completed a road trip here in the UK with no problems. Offered with a history file including the service booklet, sundry invoices, various MoT test certificates and the UK V5C registration document. This Mercedes also includes upgrades such as 18” AMG alloy wheels and a Pure Highway digital radio. This is a well looked after example and we are sure it will be a good investment for the new owner.
