In terms of luxury and build quality, few cars in history are able to match to the Mercedes-Benz 280 SE in this department.
All examples where hand crafted and built to the highest possible standards and were created in order to help Mercedes-Benz take on the might of convertibles produced by companies such as Rolls-Royce and Bentley.
This was Mercedes’s answer to the battle for which manufacturer would build the ultimate 4-seater convertible car.
Despite the 280 SE being produced with many different power units, it is the cars fitted with the 3.5 litre V8 that are most coveted and desired by motoring enthusiasts and collectors. In the car on offer here today, this fabulous engine is mated to the highly sought-after floor mounted 4 speed automatic transmission.
The engine is very quiet, enabling the car to be used for long journeys in extreme comfort and luxury.
