Mercedes Benz W108 - 300 SEL 3.5 V8

Selling my Mercedes 300 SEL 3.5 V8 which was in production from 1968 to 1972, making this example one of the latter models ever produced. It has the 3.5L V8 engine (M116 Engine) producing 200hp, enabling a top speed of 127 mph. The features of this car were industry leading, with unrivalled comfort due to the cars air suspension, and the smoothness of the automatic gearbox makes this car effortless to drive. This is not to be confused with the 280 SEL as this is a completely different car and shares much more in common with the much revered 300 SEL 6.3 monster. This model has a cult following and is popular with both Collectors and Enthusiasts alike.

This model was only in production for three years, and approximately only 9,500 were ever built. The 3.5L V8 engine provided such high performance, the two-tonne car was compared to sports and American muscle cars of that era.

Condition Report

The overall condition of this car is very good and well above average but not concourse, as I bought this as a mini restoration project from Belgium and unfortunately need to sell as I need to Fund another Restoration project. The car required a few minor bits of work to get it through its MOT and these have all been addressed. These models were prone to Suspension failure if not maintained and both the Front and Rear Air Bags have been replaced at a cost of over £1.5k. The Braking System was also attended to as it had been stood for some time along with other mechanical items.

The Silver metallic paint is beautifully contrasted with peacock blue leather interior which is just as plush as when the car left the factory. This is a rare option considering most units came with the standard velour interior. The leather interior is in good condition and whilst it shows its 47-year age, there are no rips or tears of any kind and has aged gracefully. The Headlining is not ripped/torn or sagging as is the case with some of the W109’s of this period
