The W126 was launched in 1979 as a successor to the earlier W116 line. It was the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or “special class.”
The W126 was initially offered in straight-6, V8, and turbo diesel sedan models. In September 1981, 2-door coupé versions (C126) of the W126 were introduced.
