SEC Video Review http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com This is a very nice and sweet
84 Mercedes Benz 500SEC Coupe that is just as clean as they come. I really
like a W126 in a Coupe. They are very nice looking cars. This car has the
big 5.0L V8 engine that is powerful and runs great. It cruises down the
road nicely and the car feels tight. The exterior is beautiful and the
paint looks great. It is not the most popular color but it is classy
looking. This car is as straight as the come. Even the factory wheels are
nice as can be. The interior is amazing in this car. The leather seats show
almost no wear. The rest of the interior is just as clean. It is a Mercedes
so of course the interior is loaded with all the power options. You will be
hard pressed to find a nicer one.

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 powerful. 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.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class ranks 2 out of 7 Super Luxury Cars. This
ranking is based on our analysis of 90 published reviews and test drives of
the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The flagship sedan of the world's oldest automaker, the exemplary 2010
Mercedes-Benz S-Class shows off everything that Mercedes engineers can do.
It offers a level of luxury even some similarly-priced cars can't match,
and safety systems no other automaker builds. Much of the same can be said,
however, of its less-expensive E-Class sibling.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the most luxurious and exclusive sedan built
by the legendary engineers at Mercedes-Benz. It is a well-balanced luxury
cruiser, offering refined road manners, sumptuous luxury and high-end
technology packaged within an old-world ambiance that many rivals can't
approach. Available with a powerful V8 or an astonishing twin-turbo V12, it is as fast as many sports cars. With
exceptional Napa leather upholstery and a revised technology package
including an updated navigation system that stores Zagat reviews of
thousands of restaurants and hotels, it coddles its occupants like few cars
ever have. Its unique, optional Drive Dynamic seats, which actually change
shape to cradle passengers in response to the car's movements, are
something no rival can match.
For 2010, the S-Class also debuts some extraordinary new safety systems,
such as Mercedes' new, heavily-advertised Attention Assist driver
drowsiness monitor, which attempts to detect and alert a tiring driver.
Reviewers continue to be frustrated with the car's complex COMAND system,
which makes adjusting everything from the radio station to the firmness of
the seats a complicated process involving a series of menus on the
navigation screen. A few also say that a new steering system, found only on
the S550, is disappointing, feeling overBoosted.
Other Cars to Consider
The Super Luxury Car class has seen several significant new entries in
recent years, and the S-Class is no longer an obvious favorite. Buyers
interested in an opulent interior can save thousands, while retaining a
similar level of comfort, in the Lexus LS. Buyers looking for raw
performance can out-corner the S-Class in BMW's redesigned 7-Series -- or,
for a similar price, can buy what many consider the world's fastest
four-door sedan, the all-new Porsche Panamera.
S-Class buyers might also pause to notice that, one step down on the price
ladder, the all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan carries much of the same
appeal, and all of the same safety systems, for a lower cost.
Those who have always seen a Mercedes-Benz S-Class as the epitome of luxury
motoring won't be disappointed with the 2010 edition. This is still a
superb car in every way. But those who aren't attached to the idea of a
Mercedes might want to consider a few competitors before settling on this
Mercedes-Benz S-Class: The Details
A new, hybrid edition of the S-Class is available for 2010. The S400 hybrid
differs from conventionally-powered S-Class sedans in many ways. We review
it separately. A pair of high-performance AMG models, the S63 and S65, also
get separate reviews.
For 2010, Mercedes has made subtle exterior changes to the lights and side
mirrors of the S-Class, added considerable new safety equipment and
slightly altered the mix of options available on each trim level.

Restoring a Mercedes W126 300SD Part 3: Brake and Safety Related Inspection and Repair
Before driving a newly acquired old Benz its a good idea to check over
those items that are safety related. This inspection should begin with the
brakes and include suspension, steering and shocks. Yes, shock absorbers
are a safely related item. Good shocks and a tight suspension can keep you
out of an accident during abrupt maneuvering. You will not believe what
Kent found on this 300SD. Talk about neglect! You just have to watch the

Mercedes-Benz S Class - The Bruno Sacco Model CL 500 C140
S-Class top of the line Mercedes-Benz,a look at the Bruno Sacco CL 500 C140
model In stuttgart Germany
Bruno Sacco became to 12. November 1933 in Udine, Italy, born. After its
training in Tarvisio and Udine visited it the poly-technical university
Turin, where it during the study time Ghia first experiences in the area of
the body organization gained. Later he took over for the companies Ghia and
Pininfarina smaller orders. In the year 1958 Bruno Sacco began its career
Daimler Benz. As stylist and a technical designer he worked under the
direction of Karl Wilfert, Friedrich violonist and Béla Barényi at
different projects also. For example to Mercedes Benz 600 and to Roadster
230 SL. In addition it took over the Design direction of the project for
the safety exhibitions at that time as well as for the so-called „rolling
research laboratories ", the experimental vehicles C 111- I and C 111-II.
In the year 1970 Sacco took over the line of the department of body
construction and measure conception at Daimler Benz. In this time the ESF
prototypes developed (experimentation safety vehicle) under its
co-operation as well as the model row 123. With the title „upper engineer
"stepped Bruno Sacco 1975 the follow-up of Friedrich violonist as
directors/conductors of the head department Stilistik on and coined/shaped
thus from now on the appearance of the Mercedes Benz passenger vehicles.
Developed the Diesel record car C 111-III (1978) and the S-class of the
series W 126 (1979) with after it designated Bag whether rescuers. In the
year 1978 became Sacco director/conductor of the specialist area Stilistik.
1987 the executive committee appointed it as the director of the range
Design, and 1993 became it as leaders Design member of the director circle
of the enterprise. In this characteristic Bruno Sacco transferred also a
mandate function for the organization of the products of the business field
of commercial motor vehicles. In March 1999 Bruno Sacco handed over the
range line after 41 years in the Mercedes Benz Design at Peter Pfeiffer.
A quarter of a century has passed since the birth of W124-series Mercedes
E-class, yet every time we see it on the road it looks incredibly fresh to
eyes. For sure, the timeless design by Bruno Sacco plays a major role in
its evergreen status, but more important, the W124 was probably the best
engineered car ever made. It was developed when Mercedes was still putting
engineering -- instead of financial -- targets in first priority. Lengthy
development and extensive testing process made it nearly flawless. It was
so durable and reliable that most production cars still exist today.
Provided proper maintenance, they can easily look like new cars !

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.
