The Mercedes Benz W126 series was a line of S-Class vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz between 1979 and 1992. Premiering in September 1979 the W126 was the second generation to officially bear the prestigious S-Class designation, an abbreviation for the German Sonderklasse or "special class".

The W126 was formally introduced at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (International Motor Show, or IAA) in Frankfurt in September of 1979.

These W126 models were initially offered with straight-six, V8, and a turbocharged diesel engine for the sedan. In September of 1981 the C126 2-door coupé version was introduced.

Seven models were among the originally introduced line of standard (SE S-Klasse-Einspritzmotor, SD S-Klasse-Diesel) and long (SEL, SDL) wheelbase sedan body styles, including the 280 SE/SEL, 380 SE/SEL, 500 SE/SEL and 300 SD.

In 1981, the coupé version C126 (SEC, acronym for (German language) S-Klasse-Einspritzmotor-Coupé) of the W126 S-Class premiered at the IAA with the 500 SEC model.
