Following the debut of the 1970s generation W116, Mercedes-Benz began plans for the next-generation S-Class model in October 1973. Codenamed 'project W126,' the project had specific goals: an improved ride, better handling and improved fuel efficiency. These improvements were aimed at helping retain the S-Class' market leadership as the world's best-selling prestige luxury saloon. Following the 1970s oil crisis, Mercedes-Benz had made fuel efficiency an especially pertinent goal named 'Energy Program', even in the large V8 engine versions of the S-Class. In terms of the body design, the objective of the W126 design team, led by Mercedes-Benz's Bruno Sacco, was to produce a car that was sleeker and more aerodynamic than the previous model. The application of lighter materials and alloys combined with thorough wind tunnel testing to reduce overall drag meant the car consumed about 10% less fuel than its predecessor. After six years of development, the W126 was formally introduced at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (International Motor Show) in Frankfurt on September 1979. The initial line-up featured seven models. In 1981, the American Wheels Magazine selected the W126 model 380SE as its Car of the Year.
This excellent 380 SEC Coupé was supplied by Woking Motors and has only covered 24,500 miles from new having had only one owner from new. Delivered with air conditioning, ABS and sunroof this car is still in showroom condition having been always garaged. The car is supplied with a full-service history with 19 stamps in the service book, the last being in June 2017. Finished in thistle green with dark brown and cognac velour, this superb Mercedes-Benz also comes with a V5C registration document, an MoT test which expires in February 2019, spare keys, the original bill of sale and a large file containing all the books that were supplied when the car was new and a large number of invoices. This 380 SEC looks and drives as good as it did when it left the factory 35 years ago.]]
