Mercedes-Benz unveiled the W/V126 series S-Class at the dawn of the 1980s, and it quickly established itself as the standard-setter for large luxury sedans globally. It was designed to build on the huge success of its W/V116 predecessor, and it remains the most popular of all the generations to carry the venerated S-Class designation. The coupé version of the 126 series (C126) was launched shortly after the sedans and like them was designed in-house by legendary stylist Bruno Sacco. It was intended to be a grand tourer in the time-honoured tradition, and provided enviable space, comfort, safety and exclusivity for its time. This excellent Australian-complied example from 1982 is finished in stunning Milan Brown metallic with a mocha soft leather interior, and is one of the most original and well-preserved C126s we have ever been fortunate enough to see. Delivered new to a Surfers Paradise owner by Grand Motors at Southport, it comes complete with all its factory literature and a very comprehensive service log book documenting its 148,000km. It even features an early Mitsubishi car phone kit – an expensive genuine dealer-fit accessory from the time – with the official instruction manual still intact. Everything about this car functions as it should – from the ice-cold air-conditioning, electric windows, sunroof, and cruise control through to the original Becker Grand Prix sound system and the electrically-adjustable front seats. The 3.8L V8 performs strongly, and the automatic transmission provides crisp and smooth gear changes. Sitting on its original factory-fitted “Bundt” 14-inch alloy wheels, this 380SEC turns heads wherever it goes and represents a wonderful opportunity for the canny enthusiast/investor as this model seems certain to be headed for modern classic status in the coming years. It will not disappoint the fussiest buyer and we look forward to showing you this remarkable example of a very rare and desirable Mercedes coupé.
