A completely new vehicle generation of the upper class is presented to the public in September in 1972. The first officially designated "Mercedes - Benz S-Class " - internal designation W 116 - replaced the series W 108 / W 109 from. Half a year later, the Mercedes S-Class Sedan (450 SE), SLC Coupe, offered in addition to the Mercedes 450 Mercedes 450 SL Roadster and also with the larger 4.5-liter V8 engine. At the same time, the Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL was an extended wheelbase by 100 millimeters, as with its predecessors the latitude of legroom in the rear is beneficial. Also in terms of passive safety marks the S-class state of the art : for example, the fuel tank of the Mercedes - Benz 450 SEL is no longer now in the rear of the vehicle, but is installed, protected against collision over the rear axle, in the interior, the heavily padded dashboard and a four-spoke safety steering wheel with impact absorber and broad bolster plate for maximum impact protection. Important improvement in the Mercedes 450 SEL compared to the predecessor series was the even stronger safety passenger cell with stiffened roof frame structure, and reinforced doors. The energy-absorbing front and rear crumple zone of the Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL was increased significantly by controlled deformability of front and rear.
