1969-1971 MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE 3.5 Coupe/Cabriolet (W111) specifications

1969-1971 MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE 3.5 Coupe/Cabriolet (W111) specifications Classic and Performance Car

These are the ones that everyone wants but few can afford. From late 1969 Mercedes dropped their 3.5-litre V8s into the Coupés and Cabrios to create a reassuringly expensive range-topper with 25% more power than the six-cylinder cars. Today, the SE 3.5s have become cooler than a penguin’s fridge. It is of course the much rarer Cabriolets that take top honours, with prices more than double those given for Coupés.
