In a bizarre twist of fate, this car's design was based on the W111 coupé but widened and squared off as the fintail fashion was quickly fading by the mid 1960s. However, both W111 and W112 models were modernised; the 220 SE was superseded by the 250 SE which featured the new 2,496cc engine, producing 150bhp at 5500rpm, giving it a significant improvement in top speed. Visibly, the changes only affected the new 14" rims with new wheel trims; this was to accommodate the larger disc brakes and the new rear axle. In November 1967, the 250 SE was superseded by the new 280 SE. Inside, the car received wood veneer on the dashboard and other minor changes. Finished in Silver Grey with red leather interior, this W111 Mercedes-Benz was one of the last handbuilt cars from Sindelfingen, Germany and subsequently delivered to the US. Options included electric windows, sunroof, column change gearbox, air conditioning and a Hirschmael electric aerial. Arriving in the UK in 2018, this example has benefitted from some minor refreshing with the wood being French polished, new carpets and the top roll renovated. The car has also been sent to marque specialist Andrew Brodie Engineering for a small service and setting up of the fuel injection system ensuring the car runs correctly. This represents a great opportunity to acquire one of the last hand built six cylinder examples of this model.
