The Mercedes-Benz W126 is the company’s internal designation for its second-generation S-Class, manufactured in sedan/saloon (1979–1991) and coupé (1981–1990) models, succeeding the company’s W116 range. Mercedes introduced the 2-door C126 coupé model, marketed as the SEC, in September 1981. This generation was the first S-Class to have separate chassis codes for standard and long wheelbases (W126 and V126) and for coupé (C126).
The 380 SEC in question is coated in an eye-catching blue/green, complemented by the immaculate sand leather interior. Extensive work has been done on the SEC in including a full respray in the original Blue/Green colour. A no expense spared recoating of the interior wood inserts and a full rear, self-leveling suspension refurbishment.
With only 151000km on the clock this beauty has a agents and partial service history with Carcol (Jhb) and Golden Rule Motors (Cape Town). The SEC performs beautifully and the 160kW V8 allows for effortless acceleration which still leaves most cars behind at the lights (8.6 seconds from 0 to 100kph). She runs quietly at high speeds and still has plenty of road to cover.
With the car just having undergone its annual service it’s the prime time to swoop it up to really get your money’s worth.
If this 380 SEC is up your ally, give us a call.
Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
