Specific description Only 1.232 Mercedes 280SE 3.5 L were produced. They represented at that time the symbol for status, luxury and reliability. It was truly the flagship model of Mercedes-Benz and also the last hand build convertible. The car has many options such as: Becker Mexico radio, Air-conditioning, powered windows. This car was sold new to the United States. It was exported to The Netherlands and has been maintained in perfect condition. Later on, it was sold to a Belgian Car collector from Antwerp. There are no leakages and the exhaust has been replaced lately. The car drives incredibly well and participated lately at several rally’s, including one in Tuscany, Italy. No need to say this is a very reliable car. The car is matching numbers and the very striking colour combination of the car are the original ones.

Model description A final model was added in August 1969, the 280 SE 3.5. The car was fitted with the brand-new M116 3499 cc V8. It produced 200 hp (150 kW) at 5800 rpm, and a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph) (205 km/h (127 mph) with automatic transmission) and a 0-100 at 9.5 seconds (11.5 for the auto). To accommodate the large engine, the car's front grille was widened; front and rear bumpers were also modified with the addition of rubber strips. The rear lenses changed to a flatter cleaner design. This change was carried across the standard 280 SE. As the top of its range, the 280 SE 3.5 is seen as an ideological successor to the W112 300 SE, though it lacked the W112's air suspension.
