1970 Mercedes Benz W108 280S Automatic Saloon. Blue with blue upholstery. Left Hand Drive. Lots of work has recently been carried out and the car is now MOT'd and U.K registered. Running and driving well with excellent panels and a very strong chassis without any sign of corrosion. The first 'S-class' Mercedes arrived in 1968 in the form of the 280S and 280SE which were large comfortable sports saloons offering powerful touring capabilities and luxurious interiors with space to seat five occupants. Known as W108/109 models, they were constructed on a 108 inch wheelbase and the new S-Class saloons were much heavier than earlier models. The styling was updated using a thoroughly modern design featuring the attractive stacked layout of the headlights which was popular during the period. Although the 280 was usually powered by a 2.8 litre, straight six engine, Mercedes-Benz added a V8 engined 280SE to the model range. The 280SE, 3.5 had a 3.5 litre V8 engine and came with both automatic and manual transmission and power steering. These saloons were well equipped and extremely powerful. The 280SE 3.5 would reach a top-speed of 125mph and offered effortless high-speed cruising mated with supple ride comfort. Between 1971 and 1972, Mercedes-Benz produced 11,309 examples and they have always been popular with collectors and enthusiasts alike.
