Car Description

The Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 is regarded as the top model of the W111 series, which was produced by Daimler-Benz from 1961 to 1971. In both the coupé and cabriolet versions, this classic car still captivates today with its style and elegance. Mercedes-Benz began selling the W111 models as early as 1961, setting completely new standards in terms of safety. A major innovation was the bodywork: for the first time ever a passenger car was equipped with a stable passenger cell and an effective crumple zone. In addition, the W111 models were equipped with wedge pivot door locks that couldn't jump open accidentally. This was important, among other things, because - as was the case with many cars of the time - not every W111 had safety belts for passengers. But the cars had other modern security measures inside: For example, the steering wheel was fitted with an impact plate with a soft cover, and the dashboard was also cushioned and equipped with partially elastically recessed controls. The engine performance of the various models increased repeatedly over several years until the real gem of the series - the Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 - finally reached its pinnacle. But the model also had other features that set it apart from its predecessors.

It took Daimler-Benz eight years after the introduction of the model to introduce a 3.5-litre V8 engine to the 280 SE 3.5 in 1969. The 280 SE 3.5 had a displacement of 3499 cm³ and a full 200 hp (147 kW), which enabled it to reach a top speed of 205 km/h. However, the Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 was not only technically different from its previous siblings, which had at best touched 170 hp. Also externally the car was given a clear facelift - the front part of the car was given a flatter bonnet and a lower radiator grille. Since then, we have distinguished between the models by calling them the older "high grille" and the more recent "low grille". The latter are now considered the most coveted models in this classic car series. These gems are particularly valuable today because only a small number of them left the Daimler-Benz production halls. Between 1969 and 1971, a total of just 3,270 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 coupés and even fewer cabriolets - namely just 1,232 - were put on the road.

The vehicle offered here was completed on June 8, 1970 and then shipped to California in the United States. On October 15, 1974, the coupe was sold by Mercedes-Benz of Hollywood, California to Richard N. Bodine, residing at 100 E Mountain View St. In Barstow, California. The current mileage was 11,553 miles. Approved with the license plate 108BXW. Unfortunately, despite extensive research, we are not aware of any further history in the USA. In the summer of 2013, the purchase and re-import to Germany took place, before finally in December 2013, the restoration was started in our own factory. The restoration was done strictly according to the data card spec and so the vehicle presents itself today in exactly that specification, in which it ran from the factory. Only the conversion to EU standards was carried out. Over the next 23 months, this W111 coupe has been restored to the highest quality standards in over 2700 hours of work. Of course, a comprehensive documentation of this is available. In December 2015, the vehicle was finally completed. Until April 2016, this coupé was used as a Mechatronik reference vehicle at numerous fairs and Concours events until finally in June 2016, the sale to its current owner took place, on behalf of this Mercedes-Benz W111 280 SE 3.5 Coupe is now offered again.
