The 111-series Mercedes-Benz automobiles are highly regarded among informed collectors for their combination of excellent build quality, sophisticated design, comfortable ride, great handling and luxurious appointments. The pinnacle of the series is the 3.5, powered by Mercedes-Benz's first V-8 engine, a sophisticated light alloy head, overhead valve design employing the highly sophisticated Mercedes-Benz/Bosch fuel injection system. Built only as coupes and cabriolets, the 280SE 3.5 was a limited production, high performance, expensive luxury automobile, costing between $13,000 and $15,000 in the U.S. -- at a time when that much money would buy two loaded Corvettes! This coupe is exceptionally attractive in Metallic Medium Green with Cognac interior. It has a console-shifted automatic transmission, factory sliding sunroof, Becker radio, and fog lights. The bodywork is straight, the panels are flat and the fits are even. The interior is beautiful, and a pleasing contrast with the exterior color. Under hood it is clean, orderly, tidy and original and has fresh belts and hoses. While the 28SE 3.5 cabriolet costs a fortune, the coupe's more rigid structure offers better performance and handling. With a sunroof, how much does a cabriolet add anyway? Other than tens of thousands of dollars, that is.
