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.

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’.
