500SEC V8 Driving Video
Made this video to see if any benz guys can see anything unusual about my
cars behaviour as i have had tuning problems since the day i got it, but i
thought i might aswell make the video good to watch also... Although i
don't think i actually went foot to the floor in the video.
For anyone who doesn't know, The car blows black smoke on startup and often
has to crank a few times to start, is quite sluggy on acceleration despite
a 3.46 LSD diff, leans out under load at about 15:1 AFR.
The car has low K's, the 5 litre motor in mine is rated at 195kw at the
fly, last Dyno showed
only 118 kw at the wheels...

Mercedes Benz C126 Coupé Development
Following the debut of the 1970s generation W116 (which also included the
flagship Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9), Mercedes-Benz began plans for the
next-generation S-Class model. Codenamed "project W126," the project had
specific goals: an improved ride, better handling, and improved fuel
efficiency. These improvements were aimed at helping retain the S-Class'
market leadership as the world's best-selling prestige luxury sedan.
Following the 1970s oil crisis, Mercedes-Benz had made fuel efficiency an
especially pertinent goal (named "Energy Program"), even in the large V8
engined versions of the S-Class.
In terms of the body design, the objective of the W126 design team, led by
Mercedes-Benz's Bruno Sacco, was to produce a car that was sleeker and more
aerodynamic (and thus lighter and faster) than the previous model. The
application of lighter materials and alloys combined with thorough wind
tunnel testing (to reduce overall drag) meant the car consumed about 10%
less fuel than its predecessor; the maximum speed was also increased (250
km/h in the most powerful model).
After six years of development, the W126 was formally introduced at the
Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (International Motor Show, or IAA) in
Frankfurt on September 1979. The initial lineup featured seven models in
standard (SE, SD) and long (SEL, SDL) wheelbase sedan body styles: the 280
SE/SEL, 380 SE/SEL, 500 SE/SEL and 300 SD. Technically, the long wheelbase
(SEL) variants were codenamed V126, but this was not popularly known. In
1981, the coupe version (SEC) of the W126 S-Class premiered at the IAA with
the 500 SEC model. In 1981, Wheels Magazine selected the W126 model 380 SE
as its Car of the Year.
Four years after the introduction of the fuel-efficiency "Energy Program,"
the model range had been reworked completely. In September 1985, again at
the IAA in Frankfurt, the reworked model range was reintroduced. Apart from
visual changes to the bumpers, side covers and alloys, the changes made to
the available collection of engine variants was most visible. Two
newly-constructed 6 cylinder engines and a new 4.2L V8 were added, and
other engines were further upgraded.
The W126 generation was replaced by the W140 in 1992, although a satellite
factory in South Africa is known to have continued production until 1994.

you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion

designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
