The 450 SEL 6.9 is the high-performance version of the W116 S-Class saloon. It was based on the long-wheelbase version of W116 chassis introduced in 1972 and equipped with Mercedes-Benz M100 V8 engine and full hydropneumatic suspension system. The 450 SEL 6.9 was presented to the public at the Geneva Auto Show in 1974 as the successor to the original high-performance saloon from Mercedes-Benz, the 300 SEL 6.3 (1968–1972). Like the 300 SEL 6.3, the nomenclate, 6.9, was affixed to the trunk lid as to differentiate itself from 450 SEL. The 450 SEL 6.9 was produced in a very limited number from 1975 to 1981.
The 450 SEL 6.9 had the first full hydropneumatic suspension system from Mercedes-Benz and was the world’s first passenger car to be fitted with modern form of ABS.
For several years, the 450 SEL 6.9 was the quickest-accelerating and fastest European saloon, reaching 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds and 240 km/h top speed.
The total production from 1975 to 1980 was 7,380 units with 1,816 exported to the North American markets.
The retail price of 450 SEL 6.9 was DM 81,247. The 450 SEL 6.9 had a premium of DM 25,000 to 30,000 over the 450 SEL.
