HISTORY OF THE MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE
Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of brightwork; the leather upholstery was thick and comfortable; and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations.

History of the 300SE
The 300SE, internally known as the W112, was first introduced in 1961 as a sedan. The new model wore the same body style that was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1959. Exterior improvements for the new model included wider chrome trim on the sides in addition to the wheel arches. Under the hood the M189 3.0 liter inline-6 fitted with Bosch mechanical fuel injection produced 160 horsepower. A state of the art pneumatic air suspension system was utilized (the same system later used in the 600 Grosser) while 4-wheel disc brakes ensured adequate brake performance. Coupe and convertible models were introduced in 1962 and examples built after January 1964 gained an additional 10 horsepower. Selling at nearly twice the price of a 200 series model, the 300SE was the most expensive “standard” Mercedes-Benz of the early 1960’s, with the exception of the 600 Grosser that was first offered in 1963. The quality, comfort and performance meant that the 300SE was a frequent sight at some of the most exclusive destinations on the planet.

HISTORY OF THE MERCEDES-BENZ 220 CABRIOLET
As one of the first post-war Mercedes-Benz models, the 220 was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in April 1951. The 220 featured the return of the inline 6-cylinder engine, which displaced 2.2 liters (hence the 220 nomenclature) and provided an ample 80 horsepower. Styling was similar to the pre-war 170 though the headlamps were now fully enclosed by the front fenders. The modern front end was longer and interior furnishings were more lavish. The overhead camshaft inline-6 was mated to a column shifted synchronized 4-speed manual transmission which did provide (and still does today) a lively driving experience. Top speed was nearly 90 miles an hour and it could reach 60 miles per hour in 20 seconds from a full stop. The 220 was offered in two different cabriolet options, the sporty Cabriolet A and the stylish Cabriolet B which offered comfortable seating for four. With undeniable style and ample performance, the 220 marked Mercedes-Benz’s return to form after World War II by offering luxury for the whole family while providing the level of performance that resonates in the spirit of Mercedes-Benz today – the best or nothing.

HISTORY OF THE 280SL
The 113 Mercedes-Benz platform was introduced in the summer of 1963 with the 230SL. Designed to continue the SL line from the iconic 190SL and the legendary 300SL, the new 113 SL provided a sporty driving experience with an adequate level of comfort. The iconic “Pagoda” shape was defined by the removable hardtop and aluminum boot that concealed the convertible top when not in use. While the large chrome grill and three pointed star in the front harked back to the previous generation of SLs, customers were enamored with the newly introduced fuel injected inline-six cylinder engine, excellent handling suspension and powerful brakes. The 280SL was first assembled in December 1967 and marked the third and final iteration of the 113 chassis. With an upgraded 2.8 liter 195 horsepower engine, the 280SL transitioned the 113 chassis from a sporty two-seater to a finely appointed, adequately powered sports roadster. In the U.S., most 280SLs received a factory 4-speed automatic transmission. Considered by some Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts to be the last classic SL, the 280SL has become a highly sought-after automobile by both collectors and motoring enthusiasts.

HISTORY OF THE 1968 MERCEDES BENZ 280SE CABRIOLET
Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations.

HISTORY OF THE 280SL
The 113 Mercedes-Benz platform was introduced in the summer of 1963 with the 230SL. Designed to continue the SL line from the iconic 190SL and the legendary 300SL, the new 113 SL provided a sporty driving experience with an adequate level of comfort. The iconic “Pagoda” shape was defined by the removable hardtop and aluminum boot that concealed the convertible top when not in use. While the large chrome grill and three pointed star in the front harked back to the previous generation of SLs, customers were enamored with the newly introduced fuel injected inline-six cylinder engine, excellent handling suspension and powerful brakes. The 280SL was first assembled in December 1967 and marked the third and final iteration of the 113 chassis. With an upgraded 2.8 liter 195 horsepower engine, the 280SL transitioned the 113 chassis from a sporty two-seater to a finely appointed, adequately powered sports roadster. In the U.S., most 280SLs received a factory 4-speed automatic transmission. Considered by some Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts to be the last classic SL, the 280SL has become a highly sought-after automobile by both collectors and motoring enthusiasts.

HISTORY OF THE MERCEDES-BENZ 220SE CABRIOLET
Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles from the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of bright work; the leather upholstery was thick and comfortable; and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. The first W111 model was the 220 and its SE trim option featured a fuel injected inline six cylinder engine. The model proved to be immensely popular, with the most discerning individuals opting for the two door cabriolet version. Of the 82,988 W111 220SEs built, only 3% were two door cabriolets. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars became wildly popular among international socialites, and they were frequently seen cruising around in the world’s most posh destinations. The 220SE’s rarity, performance, handling, and craftsmanship are all blended perfectly into a design that has become iconic. It is no wonder why the W111 Cabriolet has become one of the most recognized classic Mercedes-Benz models sought by collectors today.
