The “126 body” S-class debuted in Europe as 1980 models, one year ahead of its introduction in the United States. Only short wheelbase models were built the first year such as the 280S, 280SE, 380SE, and 500SE discussed in this U.K. market ad. Note the completely flush headlights and plastic wheelcovers that only Euro models were equipped with.
