Just look. A "Tabakbraun" Mercedes-Benz W111 280SE 3.5 convertible (w111.027 for intimates). Perhaps one of the most stylish ways to get around. Forget that vulgar superyacht or the standard Learjet. Style is a fully fueled Mercedes. The W111 was the absolute top class on the market at the time. The advantage of driving early top models is that the ravages of time barely seem to get a grip on them. It's like they still drive as well as modern cars. This can be illustrated by an advantage. Where modern cars are equipped with huge wheels with tires as flat as postman elastics, this W111 rides on 14 inch rims with a huge sidewall. It fits perfectly with a car where your heart rate immediately drops 15 beats per minute as soon as you turn the key, pure relaxation. This Mercedes-Benz W111 280SE 3.5 was delivered new in 1971 in the United States. The car came to the Netherlands in 2009 and ended up in the collection of a very skilled collector. The way in which he has maintained and improved the car over the past decade shows a great deal of knowledge. The paint has been repainted in the original colour, the original interior has been treated and sealed by a specialist. Thanks to this method, the original leather is fully preserved. Beautiful to look at and a benchmark for the expertise with which the car has been treated. In total, more than € 15,000 has been invested in the maintenance and preservation of this beautiful Mercedes-Benz in recent years. The bodywork therefore looks beautiful. The sheet metal is nice and thin and the fits are correct. The chrome work and the rims are also in top condition. The paint was very well sprayed at the time and still looks fantastic.

The interior is in very good and original condition. The leather has a beautiful patina and is wonderfully supple at the same time. The wood on the dashboard and the bakelite steering wheel are also in beautiful condition. Furthermore, the Becker Mexico radio and the original air conditioning stand out in the interior. The technology is perfectly maintained. The engine compartment shines with originality. Many parts have been re-passivated and make the engine compartment a feast for the eyes. The icing on the cake is the fact that this is a matching numbers car. The 3.5 liter V8 engine is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that perfectly matches the car's character. The engine produces 200 horsepower and has a top speed of more than 200 kilometers per hour. The air conditioning has also been completely overhauled once and makes traveling long distances in this beautiful large convertible a breeze. The work carried out on the Mercedes-BenZ 280SE has all been tracked through invoices that are present with the car. The car has matching colors and numbers, which is demonstrated by the existing data card. In short, a beautiful Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 in beautiful original condition in top condition.
