To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Fort Lauderdale event, 29 - 30 March 2019.
$100,000 - $120,000
Ultimate development of the W111 model Equipped with powerful 230-bhp, 3.5-liter V-8 Beautifully finished, with original exterior color Accompanied by copy of Mercedes-Benz Data Card
For many, the 280 SE 3.5 coupe represents the last of the truly hand-built Mercedes-Benz. The ultimate form of the W111 models, each car started with a standard chassis before being built by hand by craftsmen - finished with luxurious wood and leather interiors for the bankers, lawyers, and Hollywood stars who would queue up to own one.
Though weighing over 3,600 lbs., each car was equipped with Mercedes-Benz's all-new 3.5-liter V-8 engine, which ensured a power output of 230 bhp. With a top speed of 130 mph, and the ability to reach 60 mph from a dead stop in under 10 seconds, the 280 SE 3.5 coupe certainly was not lacking in energy. Fully independent coil-spring suspension and four-wheel disc brakes meant that ride and handling with the long-wheelbase chassis were thoroughly modern; but unlike a car of the 21st century, the look was completely distinctive and completely Mercedes-Benz, or "fabulously handsome," as Road & Track called it. With a luxurious interior of leather, burred walnut, and plenty of accessories, every lucky owner took to the road in comfort and style.
Of the 3,200 coupes produced, only 800 or so were exported to the U.S. - all with a full complement of power accessories. The 280 SE 3.5 offered here, built in 1970, is a fine example of one of those icons. Presented in its original exterior color of Medium Blue Metallic (396), the interior is finished in beautifully finished tan leather. As noted on the factory data tag, the car includes a radio antenna as well as the floor-shift automatic transmission.
This 1970s Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 SE is a special example of a rare coupe that is both elegant and practical�the recognized recipe for near-term enjoyment and long-term value.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/fl19.
