Every Mercedes-Benz S-Class can claim some superlatives, but if one beats all the others in terms of popularity, then the W126. No other S-Class was sold in such large numbers or over such a long period of time. The timelessly elegant sedan was designed by Bruno Sacco and presented at the IAA in Frankfurt in 1979. Thanks to an improved cW value and reduced weight, consumption was reduced by around 10% compared to the previous model. In 1981, the coupé complemented the range. The engine range included 6- and 8-cylinder engines with up to 5.6 liters displacement and up to 220 kW (300 hp), 5- and 6-cylinder diesel engines were only available in saloons for the North American market. The W126 received a facelift in 1985 and remained popular with politicians and celebrities around the world for many more years. Production in Germany was discontinued in 1991, but continued in South Africa until 1994. A total of 818,063 saloons and 74,060 coupés were manufactured. The W126 was appreciated for its excellent workmanship and durability, so the official vehicle of the German Chancellor Helmut Kohl was retired only with more than 500,000 km.
