Originally intended as a modern replacement for the curvaceous W128 series, the W111 series Mercedes-Benz spanned little over a decade. Despite its long model life, these designs would introduce lasting innovations, like crumple zones.
This restored 280SE 3.5 Coupe is finished in a stunning colour combination: Arabian Grey on red leather. A matching-numbers car and world traveler, this Mercedes competed in the South American Rally and eventually made its way to its native Germany, where it received a comprehensive restoration by marque specialists. Under our ownership, this car has received a few finishing touches to make it a show-quality example, worthy of display or enjoyment at the wheel.
