The first 'S-class' Mercedes arrived in 1968 in the form of the
280S and 280SE which were large comfortable sports saloons offering
powerful touring capabilities and luxurious interiors with space to
seat five occupants. Known as W108/109 models. they were
constructed on 108 inch wheelbase and the new S-Class saloons were
much heavier than earlier models. The styling was updated using a
thoroughly modern design featuring the attractive stacked layout of
the headlights which was popular during the period. Although the
280 was usually powered by a 2. 8 litre straight six engine. br/>Mercedes-Benz rather confusingly added a V8 engined 280SE to the
model range. The 280SE 3. 5 had a 3. 5 L V8 engine and came with both
automatic and manual transmission and power steering. These saloons
were well equipped and extremely powerful. The 280SE 3. 5 would
reach a top-speed of 125mph and offered effortless high-speed
cruising mated with supple ride comfort. Between 1971 and 1972
Mercedes-Benz produced 11. 09 examples and they have always been
popular with collectors and enthusiasts alike. The 300SE and 300SEL
were especially well appointed. featuring burled walnut dashboards. br/>automatic transmission and power windows. When the eight cylinder
cars were introduced in 1970. the standard transmission was the
four-speed automatic box driven via a fluid flywheel rather than
the more conventional torque converter; however buyers could
specify a four-speed manual gearbox. (Is this relevant to the
car?)

This Mercedes-Benz 280SE saloon is the desirable model fitted
with the 3. 5 litre V8 engine mated to the four-speed automatic
gearbox. The car is in very good condition throughout and taking
into account its condition and the information available in the
history file. the mileage is thought to be correct at 44. 00 miles.
Finished in Silver with Black interior. this 280SE is supplied with
a V5C registration document. a current MoT test certificate. a
handbook pack and comprehensive history file containing invoices
for all works carried out to the car. With W108/109 models
appreciating significantly of late this genuine UK registered 3. 5
litre example is realistically priced and offers excellent value in
today's market place.
