W111 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE Convertible handsome and luxurious, 1968

Published in Video

OldBenz Merch Patreon The Mercedes-Benz W111 Cabriolet is one of the finest and best performing GT cars of the era. Handsome and luxurious, the glamorous cabriolet and its elegant coupe sibling offered style, luxury, performance and reliability in a typically robust package. These two-door variants shared a basic platform and drivetrain with the four-door “Heckflosse” sedans, but they were offered with a very different styling treatment. While the sedans had upright styling along with somewhat awkward tail fins that were clearly pandering to the American market, the coupe and cabrio were more modern, more subdued and much more timeless in appearance. The styling of the 280SE 2-door inspired that of the Heckflosse’s replacement, the W108, and the 2-door W111 outlasted its befinned counterpart by several years. Engines ranged from the smallbore 2.2 liter, through the powerful 2.8 liter inline-six and even a 3.5 liter V8. #w111 #mercedes280se #convertible #oldbenz source: Hyman Ltd
