Introduced in late 1969 as a prestige model to supplant the somewhat underpowered six-cylinder 280SE, the V8-powered, W111-Series 280SE 3.5 in both coupe and convertible form was of immediate appeal to wealthy customers who were accustomed to having the best quality and workmanship available in an automobile.

This is without doubt the most beautiful 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet available on the market today. Finished in metallic Ice Blue with a superb parchment hide interior, which is complemented by beautiful Burr Walnut woodwork throughout. It has a dark blue German Mohair hood and dark blue leather hood bag. Ordered from new with the most desirable options including floor change automatic gearbox, Factory Air conditioning, Electric tinted windows, an original Becker radio and Burr Walnut woodwork.

Working on the button and with the desirable Mechatronik overhauled floor change automatic gearbox, together with the Mechatronik higher ratio, rebuilt rear axle for improved long distance high speed motoring. It is a suitable and sophisticated open-touring option for those who also desire comfort and class. With its subtle and understated styling the 3.5 Cabriolet is an enthusiast’s car with superb engineering and elegant features. Rarer than a Gullwing and fast becoming even more collectible by the sophisticated car collector
