1971 MERCEDES 280SE 3.5 (W111)
This 280SE is and most definitely was a car that speaks to the owner’s taste and predilection for refinement and elegance.
The 1971 Mercedes 280 SE 3.5 is the last hand-build production automobile to come from Mercedes.
The W 111’s are renowned as one of the Mercedes Benz’s most elegant designs, and the 1971 is the epitome of class, power, and performance of that Bosch fuel injection was a first in the 280 SE’s.
The car runs beautifully at highway speed.

In 1968, the “New Generation” of upscale Mercedes-Benz models, alternatively known as the S-Class, was introduced.
These carefully refined five-passenger automobiles continued a tradition of hand-crafted quality and superior engineering, while their formal, classically inspired styling featured the discreet use of chrome to produce what many consider to be a timeless design.
