This new S-Class model might be the best looking Benz yet.
The old Mercedes SEC was part of the W126 series of S-Class body style that ran from 1979 to 1991. The SEC was the "sporty" coupe variant of the lineup. Now, Mercedes-Benz is planning to revive the SEC nameplate on a four-door coupe version of the new S-Class. Like the original, this new SEC would likely feature pillarless doors and be styled to look like the S-Class coupe in the front and rear while retaining a coupe-like silhouette. Like the CLA and CLS, this car will look like a coupe, but function like a sedan.
We have not seen the SEC name from Mercedes since 1993 when the model was rebadged as the S-Class coupe, then the CL-Class, then the S-Class coupe again. We know the S-Class has been a hot seller for Mercedes, but is another version slicing the pie a little too thin? The S-Class already comes as a sedan, coupe, convertible, Maybach, and Pullman. Even if the lineup gets too big, we are excited for the return of the SEC because Mercedes invented the four-door coupe category and it has yielded some of the best looking models in the company's history.
