Description:

1970 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series 280SE Low Grill Sunroof Coupe

Offered for sale is our incredibly rare and desirable European version 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Low Grill Sunroof Coupe with a floor-shift transmission and finished in factory correct original two-tone Papyrus White (DB 717) and Dark Blue (DB 904) over an entirely original blue leather interior. Only 613 W111 “Heckflosse” (fintail) coupes were produced with the tried and true 2.8L inline six cylinder engine in 1970 – the first year to introduce the desirable low grill design – and this is believed to be the only one that left the factory in this unique two-tone livery. It’s arguably as rare as W111 coupes come.

While not a show car, his rare example has always been lovingly cared for and could serve reliably for another 45 years as a very presentable weekend driver or as an excellent original base for a top-notch restoration. Considering their rarity and the astronomical prices that their Cabriolet and 3.5 Coupe siblings are fetching, 111 Coupes have long been undervalued in most classic car enthusiasts’ minds. That’s not always going to be the case, o it’s our opinion that they currently represent excellent investment upside. Finding “Low Grill” W111s is hard enough as it is, ut finding a rare European version, ith unique correct colors and desirable options is perhaps an irreplaceable opportunity.
