1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Coupe (W111)136,140 milesProduction of the W111 Coupe began in 1960. The launch model featured the 2195 cc M127 engine, which remained until the W111 / W112 arrived in 1965. The 2.2 litre engine was joined by a range-topping 300SE, utilising the 2996cc M189 engine. The 220SE was superseded in August 1965 by the 250SE, using the 2496cc M129 engine and offering 150hp. This was then superseded in 1967 by the 280SE when Mercedes-Benz introduced the 2778cc M130 engine rated at 160hp.Finally in 1969 the coveted 280 SE 3.5 arrived, with the al-new M116 3499cc V8 engine and 200hp. The last 280SE was produced in 1971. Over ten years Mercedes-Benz produced 16,902 SEbs, 6,213 250SEs, 5187 280SEs and 4502 280SE 3.5s.It wouldn't be replaced until the C126 arrived in 1981.The car you see here is an incredible car in it's own right, with a service history and documentation file that can only be described as enviable. The same classic Mercedes-Benz specialist looked after this car for more than 20 years, and documents detailing parts, service and maintenance work date back to 1978.Often with cars of this age we might find a stamped service book with documentation that tails off as the printed dates get closer towards the build year, but the history file of this car is a delight to peruse.In 2016 this car underwent a complete restoration, which is demonstrated by photos on a USB stick that is present within the file. The extent of this work is impressive, with corroded areas cut out and replaced with the correct gauge metal. Following the restorative work to the body, the car was repainted in the original shade of blue.The interior was then trimmed with Autocalf 7501 Wentworth Cream Hide (283 sq ft of it to be precise), the net result being one of the most enticing interior. Contrasting thick pile carpets complete the luxurious picture.An incredible opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic, comfortable, collectable coupes for a fraction of what it would cost to build to this high standard. 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Coupe (W111)136,140 milesProduction of the W111 Coupe began in 1960.
