Fast Facts:
  • The S Class model line (W126) was made up of the SE (base 4dr), SEL (stretched 4dr), and SEC (coupe)
  • The 5.5L V8 (M117) was the most powerful engine available for the S-class. It’s 155 mph top speed made it faster than the Porsche 911 3.2 and Ferrari Mondial of the same year
  • The W126 could be optioned with self leveling hydro-pneumatic suspension, known as HPF III. This system automatically lowers the car 24 mm when vehicle speed exceeds 74 MPH, improving aerodynamics and increasing high speed stability. HPF also adjusts the ride quality from hard to soft based on vehicle speed and road condition, improving comfort and drivability. The driver can even raise the car by 35 mm when driving over harsh/uneven road surfaces (only up to 50 MPH)
  • The optional fully automatic climate control system used an overhead mounted sensor to give a more precise reading of interior temperature. When the sunroof was opened, the sensor could automatically detect outside air flow and re-adjust the heat settings to maintain the desired temperature (without driver intervention)
  • By 1991, 560 models could be optioned with “ASR” (Anti-Slip Regulation) which was the industry’s first form of electronic traction control. The option included a yellow warning indicator in the center of the speedometer that flashed when the system was in active
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the optional electric rear window shade
  • 1987 had virtually no changes from the previous year (1986), which saw major updates (such as new engine options)
  • The following year (1988) featured a new 100 watt 10 speaker sound system with 6.5″ door speakers and multi-channel amps mounted behind the rear seats
  • 1989 saw a completely redesigned interior with folded leather door panels and rear-side panels, new seats w/ bigger side bolsters, 120W heated seats (vs 90W), updated EGR system, check engine light, improved engine diagnostics, standard passenger side airbag, passenger side knee bolster, improved rear defroster, and locking center console storage bin with a roll-away cover finished in burl wood
