The Italian Bruno Sacco was the Head of Mercedes-Benz Design at the time. He is proud of the C 126 to this day. Beauty and elegance in every detail, that was the goal. The result not only delighted customers during the production period from 1981 to 1991: these coupés are simply timelessly beautiful, and at the same time show true greatness and serenity. In addition to the design quality, the vehicles impress with their technical features, for example the powerful, fuel-efficient engines, and with their safety, aerodynamics and lightweight construction.
