  • In the early 1970s, Mercedes-Benz built what many people believe was the finest automobile in the world, and 1971 was the only year that this model (802 vehicles) was imported into the United States. For the buyers who wanted wind in their hair, there was no finer choice than the 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet, which, combined with the powerful 3.5-liter V-8, was the fastest, most sumptuous, and most expensive convertible that money could buy at a Mercedes-Benz dealership. It was a car that appeals, then and now, to great enthusiasts. This example is finished in classic and desired Silver-Grey Metallic with an impeccably-kept soft black leather interior and matching convertible top. It has just been released from its original owner and became available on the market for the first time. This exquisite Mercedes has been meticulously maintained and only driven 21,232 miles from new. Full documentation accompanies this investment-grade 280SE including its original owner’s manual, parts booklet, service booklet, bill of sale, window sticker, as well as complete service history from new. We are proud to offer what is arguably the best 280SE 3.5 convertible be found anywhere in the world. Throughout the past 30 years we have never seen an example that even compares to this magnificent motorcar and we are proud to offer it to the collector or enthusiast who desires the best. Ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy? According to Motortrend, the classic car market has recently shown more growth than hedge funds, with projected returns of 161% after five years and a whopping 467% after a decade.
