From Wikipedia
The Mercedes-Benz W116 was a series of flagship vehicles produced from September 1972[1] through 1979. The W116 automobiles were the first Mercedes-Benz models to be officially called S-Class, although earlier sedan models had already unofficially been designated with the letter ‘S’ – for Sonderklasse or “special class.”
The ‘new’ S-class generation development began in 1966, which was only a year after the launch of the W108/09. This was the first Mercedes saloon to feature the brand new corporate styling theme which was to be continued until 1993 when the 190 was discontinued. The design, finalized in 1969 was a dramatic leap forward, with more masculine lines that combined to create an elegant and sporty character. The basic design concept was actually inspired from the R107 SL-Class roadster, especially the front and rear lights.

The car was presented in September 1972. The model range initially included two versions of the M110 engine (Straight-6 with 2746 cc of displacement) – the 280S (using a Solex carburetor) and the 280SE (using Bosch D-Jetronic injection), plus the 350 SE, powered by the M116 engine (V8 with 3499cc of displacement). Half a year later two new models powered by the M117 engine (V8 with 4520cc of displacement) were added to the range – the 450SE and the 450SEL (with a 10cm longer body).

The most notable W116 was the high-performance, limited-production 450 SEL 6.9, which was introduced in 1975, and became the first production car to use an electronic 4-wheel multi-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) as an option from 1978 on. This model boasted the largest engine installed in a post-war Mercedes-Benz up to that time, and also featured self-leveling hydropneumatic suspension.

The 300 SD sedan (USA and Canada only) had a turbocharged 3.0 L I5 diesel engine developed from the record breaking C111 experimental vehicle.

The 450SEL was named the European Car of the Year in 1974.

Production totaled 473,035 units. The W116 was succeeded by the W126 S-Class in 1979. The W116 was sold throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia.

The W116 models were large luxury sedans. The W116 was larger on the outside than the W108/W109 series it replaced, but had similar interior capacity, as the additional bulk was driven by several new and aforementioned engineering developments on car safety and occupant protection in a crash. The W116 introduced other improved passive safety features into the vehicle design, including a strengthened vehicle occupant shell. It was one of the first cars to be available with ABS, a driver’s airbag supplemental restraint system (but not available at the vehicle’s initial launch), and the first appearance of a turbocharger for the diesel engine.

The 450SE, then the most powerful model in the W116 lineup, was awarded European Car of the Year in 1974. At the New England Auto Show in 1972 held in the fall season in Boston, the Munroney Label (window sticker) of a 1973 450SE was right at $13,000. 1973 was the first model year of the W116 for the US market. Starting in 1975, the W116 was upgraded with a new fuel injection system to comply with revised exhaust emission standards in European markets. A slight power reduction was a result of this update, but in 1978, a series of further engine upgrades restored original performance levels under the new fuel injection systems

  • Where did he find this car? At a junkyard? If this guy is seriously doubting if this car is a 4.5 or a 6.9 then it is completly clear why he only says: 'great shape' in the video. He has absolutely no knowledge regarding cars or even worse…

  • This car is a 450SEL. clearly not a 6.9. The 6.9 had different U.S. bumpers that did not have the over riders that the U.S.450SELs and 300SDs had.

  • She's a bit rough round the edges I would say she would make a good driving project ( a car that needs help around the body but runs and drives) the important thing is the guts are intact and the under structure is in good shape there's a lot there though I will say that

  • Had a better 1 last year,89' silver 300 SE (short wheel base), absolutely stonking mint body, 100% grey leather, cruise control. Full years MOT (uk road worthiness test), 6 months road tax (worth £150), and I paid £500 all in for it! Best bargain I ever had

  • Can be some good bargains over here, but some dealers go mad prices. I've got a 91' silver 300 SEL (W126), with 107k miles, full history, needs 1 front arch tidying up but black leather interior is 100% and I gave £800 for it. Don't know what that is in dollars? Cheap old Mercs are becoming rare and hard to find in UK now. I'll post a few pics up soon so you can have a look

    FTP2866 05/17/2020 4:22 pm Reply
  • Now that's fair play, lot of car for no money. Some comedians over here in UK would be asking 6k (GBP) for that. Serious value for money at that price

  • Nice old thing, far from a minter tho&if he can find mask lines around handles its a poor paint-job. Those wheels are HORRIFIC, only the yanks would chrome standard wheels, total tack!
    W116 are spoilt by those bumpers, ungainly. W126 is a far far better car, but both of them can't hold a candle to an Jaguar XJ6 of that era, for looks and ride quality, pity they weren't built that well
