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 560 SEC AMG: Something Out of This World
Respected as it is, the AMG brand has come to be regarded as a premium
Mercedes-Benz trim. It was not that long ago, however, that an AMG was
something more -- a hand-assembled blend of luxury and sport that catered
to an owner's every whim. Nothing showcases that more than auto designer
Kahren Arakelyan, the owner of this daily-driven 1988 560 SEC AMG. First
impressions mean everything -- and it was the impression from seeing a
Mercedes in Soviet Armenia that made Kahren a dedicated Benz enthusiast.

The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a series of flagship vehicles manufactured by
German automotive marque Mercedes-Benz. Premiering in September 1979 as the
successor to the earlier W116 line, the W126 was the second generation of
the Mercedes-Benz flagship to officially bear the S-Class name referring to
Sonderklasse or "special class." The W126 was initially offered in
straight-6, V8, and turbo diesel sedan
models. In September 1981, 2-door coupé versions of the W126 were
introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic,
fuel efficient, capacious, and powerfully engined. The W126 S-Class debuted
a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other
vehicles in the company's lineup. The W126 line also introduced many
Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental
restraint systems, seatbelt pretensioners, and traction control.
The W126 had a twelve-year production run between 1979 and 1991, the
longest of any S-Class generation since the flagship models were first
built in the mid-1950s
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 in October 1973. 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 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
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 coupé 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 new 4.2 and 5.6 litre V8's were added,
and other engines were further upgraded.
The W126 generation was replaced by the W140 in 1991, although a satellite
factory in South Africa is known to have continued production until 1994.
The different body styles of the W126 S-Class achieved a combined sales
total of 892,123 units (818,063 sedans and 74,060 coupés), making the W126
the most popular S-Class ever produced
