“Hidden beneath the beautiful exterior of every Mercedes is the most advanced automobile engineering to be found anywhere in the world. The Mercedes-Benz 300SE Convertible is a case in point. Symbolising luxury, power and the ultimate in sophistication, it is a car that has few equals for elegance and superb styling… for sheer technical perfection it is in a class of its own. A thoroughbred in appearance, a tiger in performance, the Mercedes-Benz 300SE Convertible stands alone. Like every Mercedes-Benz it possesses an air of distinction and quality that reflects the unique personality of its fortunate owner.” - Mercedes-Benz. Of course, Mercedes-Benz’s words applied not just to the 300SE Convertible but equally to the 300SE Coupé. The timelessly elegant coachwork of this duo had debuted back in 1959 on the 220SE and, as befitted top-of-the-range luxury models, both came equipped with air conditioning, electric windows and stereo radio as standard. Introduced in 1961, the 300SE employed a fuel-injected version of Mercedes-Benz’s new, overhead-camshaft, seven-bearing ‘six’ displacing 2,996cc and developing 160bhp (DIN) initially, 170bhp after January 1964. There was a choice of four-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while the rear suspension featured Mercedes-Benz’s hydro-pneumatic self-levelling system. Thus equipped, the 300SE was good for 120mph, with 60mph reachable in 12 seconds. Today all examples of these classic Coupés and Cabriolets are highly sought after. This Mercedes-Benz 300SE Coupé was completely restored in Switzerland in 1995 and acquired by Victor Ribeiro the following year. Finished in white with black interior, it has the desirable sunroof option and is offered with a substantial file of restoration invoices and photographs. Cette Mercedes-Benz 300 SE Coupé a été totalement restaurée en Suisse en 1995 et acquise par Victor Ribeiro l'année suivante. Peinte en blanc avec intérieur en cuir noir, elle possède un très apprécié toit ouvrant optionnel et s'accompagne d'un riche dossier de restauration (factures et photos).
