1969 Mercedes Benz 280 SE Coupe W111
The Mercedes Benz W111 was built from 1959 to 1971. The model range included four-door sedans and two-door coupes and cabriolets. The sedan models had distinctive tailfins and the car was known as the “Fintail”. On the Coupe and Cabriolet models the tailfins were almost not noticeable.
The W111 Coupe replaced the Ponton Coupe and also started off as a 220SE with the 2195 cc M127 engine. This was later upgrade to the 250 SE and eventually in 1967 the 250 SE was replaced by the 280 SE. The new 2778 cc M130 engine produced 119kW. Top speed was around 200km/h and zero to 100 took 10.5 seconds.
Inside, the car received a wood veneer option on the dashboard and other minor changes, including door lock buttons and different heater levers. The hubcaps as well as the exterior mirrors were changed.
This specific car is a 1969 model and has done only 72000kms since new. The car was subject to a nut and bolt restoration a few years ago and is absolutely pristine and mechanically excellent! This is a very stylish classic car admired by old and young alike!
