The ultimate touring cabriolet
Last of the Sindelfingen hand built cars
Complete with all original owner-driver handbooks and tools
An opportunity to acquire one of the last hand built and rare, top of the line Mercedes-Benz V8 Cabriolet.


Chassis number #11102712001038 was delivered new as one of just 801 USA examples in the final year of production.

Our beautiful 3.5 Cabriolet is finished in stunning DB304 Horizon Blue with a Dark Blue Mohair Soft Top, Dark Blue hide and matching carpets, factory fitted floor change automatic gearbox, Behr air conditioning, Electric Windows and a Becker Europa radio with Hirschmann electrical aerial ( in perfect working order ). The ultimate specification for one of these fabulous cars.

An Extensive refurbishment was completed in 2016 including a bare metal repaint, major servicing to all systems and a new convertible top. This car is supplied with the original owners manuals, pouch, tools and jack. Acquired from a longtime Pebble Beach resident who was just the second owner.

If you feel obligated to ask about the price you not only will never understand the car, you have branded yourself incapable of ever appreciating its virtues even if someone gave you one. Quote by Car & Driver on the Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 at launch.

Introduced in late 1969 as a prestige model to supplant the somewhat underpowered six-cylinder 280SE, the V8-powered, W111-Series 280SE 3.5 in both coupe and convertible form was of immediate appeal to wealthy customers who were accustomed to having the best quality and workmanship available in an automobile, but didnt need or desire the next step up, the over-the-top 600.

The hand-built body of the new model was slightly restyled, with a cleaner and flatter nose and radiator shell, but was still quite conservative. Beneath the wide hood there now rested a Bosch fuel-injected, 200bhp overhead-cam V8 with 211 foot-pounds of torque designed to deliver excellent performance. One reviewer referred to it as having a hot-rod- like persona with a lovely exhaust snarl while meeting ever-more strict emissions laws in the US, the companys most vital market.

The compact but sturdy engine was capable of moving this big 4/5-seater to 100 kilometres per hour in under 10 seconds and offered a top speed in excess of 200km/h, a substantial improvement on the six-cylinder versions figures. Large vacuum-assisted disc brakes at each corner allowed the driver to slow with ease, and handling was described as very comfortable, thanks to its coil-sprung independent suspension.

The craftsmen at Sindelfingen produced both the open and closed versions of the 3.5 which were available with just about every luxury amenity a buyer could ask for. The few choices remaining pertained to paint and interior trim colours and which model of Becker stereo system was desired. It all added up to an impressively costly automobile. Significantly, the 280SE 3.5 was to be the final model to feature this long-established and much-admired body style, and today these last-of-the-line classics are highly sought after by discerning Mercedes-Benz collectors.
