MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE 3.5 COUPE/CONVERTIBLE

2-door 5-seater coupé/convertible.

Yet more byzantine complexity from Daimler-Benz, these being the W111 types. Body style dated from 1961, when engine had been 2.2-litre injected 'six', but was based on latest S-Class platform and had brand-new V8 engine. In UK, all had automatic, power steering and high equipment level. With 200bhp could reach 127mph, but better not to ask about fuel consumption. Was notable in the UK for being the first car to use this new engine. Rare, exclusive, and somehow very Teutonic; now very desirable, if you like over-stuffed cars weighing nearly 3700lbs. Every pop star should own one.
