Built from 1961 - 1972, the Mercedes-Benz W111 coupés remain among the marque’s most distinctive and elegant models. Sharing mechanicals with the W111 “fintail” sedans, the coupés introduced a more mature fin-less style.
The 280 SE introduced in 1968 was the final six-cylinder version of the series, more agile than American luxury coupés and with negligible direct European competition. The 280 SE’s badge signified an M130 2.8 litre inline-six engine under the hood. Its seven main bearings provide for notably smooth running. Equipped with Bosch mechanical fuel injection, the M130 was rated at 180 horsepower and was also used in the 280 SL sports car.
The W111 Mercedes-Benz models featured independent suspension, including at the rear by swing axles and a central, horizontal “compensating” coil spring.
The 280 SE has a classically simple interior layout that underscores the attention to detail and quality of materials used, including long-lasting leather and genuine polished wood.
The tall greenhouse and semi-formal roofline shows the kind of delicate detail that makes these cars classics. The design allowed excellent outward visibility and generous headroom without looking boxy.
This Australian delivered York Motors car is coming with rare options like factory Behr air-conditioning and sunroof. This makes for the perfect classic Benz to invest in.
The car is described as a strong runner showing the finishing’s of a restoration which was completed 8 years ago. Spending most of its life in Victoria and coming out of a large Mercedes collection, the W111 honestly presents excellently.
Finished in the ever popular Horizon Blue, the combination of colour and style makes for a perfect summer weekend cruiser.
And when it comes to cruising, it's hard to beat an old Benz as they're comfortable, spacious, and look the part.
