The new Mercedes-Benz 220 SE(b) coupé was presented at the inauguration of the Daimler-Benz Museum in Untertürkheim on 24 February 1961.
The 250 SE coupé models with 150 HP and the Mercedes-Benz M 129 of the W 108 series started to be released from 1965 onwards. Like the three-litre models, they had the 14-inch wheels and the larger disc brakes of the top-class series 108 – with disc brakes on the back wheels. In 1967, Mercedes brought out a new 2.8-litre engine Mercedes-Benz M 130 with 160 HP. As a result, the new W 111/C was then called the 280 SE coupé. 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’.
