Description

The W126 was the flagship series for Mercedes-Benz. Debuted in September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 range, the W126 was the second generation to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 was initially offered with straight-6, V8, and turbo diesel engine saloon cars. In September 1981, a two door coupé version of the W126 was introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, capacious, and powerful.The W126 S-Class sported a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company’s line-up. The W126 line also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental restraint systems, seatbelt pre-tensioners and traction control system.Koenig Specials GmbH (known widely as Koenig) is a German tuning house based in Munich that specialised in modifications to European luxury cars but gained notability in the 1980s and 1990s for their performance modifications to Ferraris. Some of its most notable works included a twin-turbo Ferrari Testarossa (known as the Koenig Competition) that produced 1,000 bhp, a highly unusual output for cars at the time, as well as the 850 bhp Ferrari F50. Koenig also entered into automobile production with its road-going version of the Porsche 962 known as the Koenig C62, therefore becoming the first road-legal Group C-based car.Many of its cars have been featured in non-German mainstream publications such as Road & Track, Top Gear and Sports Car International. Car magazine described its Competition Evolution as “the most famous modified supercar of the 1980s”.Originally delivered to the UK, and finished in Royal Blue with Beige leather this stunning Koenig conversion is a true Icon of the 1980’s. Offered with a fresh MoT and with various bills and receipts this is perhaps the ultimate incarnation of the 560 SEC.
