The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a series of flagship vehicles which were introduced in September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 line, the W126 was the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name. The W126 was initially offered in straight-6, V8, and turbo diesel saloon models. In September 1981, 2-door Coupé versions, C126, of the W126 were introduced. The W126 S-Class debuted a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company's lineup. The W126 line also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first seatbelt pre-tensioners. In 1981, the Coupé version C126 SEC, was premiered at the IAA with the 500 SEC model.

The W126 had a twelve-year production run between 1979 and 1991, the longest of any S-Class generation since the flagship models were first built in the mid-1950s.

This Mercedes 300 SE saloon has only had three keepers, the last owner owning the car since 30/1/1997. It is in pristine condition inside and out and is a credit to its owners. The car sailed through its MOT on 16/10/2019 and since 2008 has only covered 1,600 miles to date. It has been MOTd every year, and passed first time every time, with no advisories. It also comes with the added extra of a electric sunroof, and everything on the car works and drives like new.

The car was last serviced at 65,310 miles and comes with a great history with plenty of invoices also has two keys. The cars paint work is stunning and all one colour interior and carpets look like the day the car left the factory. This is a Mercedes 300SE that has low mileage, great service history and in perfect condition from a time when Mercedes were made to last and were over-engineered. Ready to just drive straight in to your garage and enjoy at your leisure.
