The series

Besides the four-door vehicles (‘tail fin’ limousines), the W 111 and W 112 series also encompassed coupés and convertibles with flatter bodies featuring rounded fins that can still only be recognised to a limited extent.

The new Mercedes-Benz 220 SE(b) coupé was presented at the inauguration of the Daimler-Benz Museum in Untertürkheim on 24 February 1961. Coupé and convertible models of the W 111 were initially available with the same mechanics as limousine model 220 SE as a 220 SEb/C. Unlike the previous model, the coupé is based on the unabridged frame-floor system of the relevant limousine and was thus a fully-fledged four-seater. The coupé and limousine also have numerous stylistic similarities, but not a single component of the four-seater could be used for the coupé or convertible. Four times as many parts were made by hand for coupés and convertibles than for the limousine. These C models were the last to be largely manufactured by hand, which is why the price of the coupés and convertibles was almost double that of the limousines. Some small modifications were also made to the interior. The previously veneered valve body was covered with leather. The W 111 was given another facelift in 1969 with the introduction of the 3.5-litre V8 engine with 200 HP; the front section was given a flatter bonnet and a lower radiator grille. From then on, the models were distinguished by the (unofficial) designations ‘high radiator’ and ‘flat radiator’. The 280 SE 3.5 convertible with its eight-cylinder M116 engine is a much sought-after vehicle in this series.

The vehicle

The 280 SE 3.5 convertible shown here is in excellent condition, with regards to both its appearance and mechanics. This is because the convertible has been professionally preserved over the years.

The vehicle has always been looked after by renowned German specialist vintage car companies and its condition has been continuously improved. Nothing has been neglected or fallen short in this regard. It is a convertible sold in Germany, which has also always been certified in Germany during its lifetime. The registration document is also available. A divine classic with the colour combination DB 180 silver/leather black, which also matches the distribution specifications. Not only will you really enjoy driving it, you can also indulge in its exclusivity – an investment that increases in value.
