The era

Or what was it actually like in those days?
With the 250S, 250SE and 300SE models Mercedes presented its new, luxury range in 1965. After the distinctive tailfin era, it was now up to Paul Bracq to present a new style, based on softer lines. The result was a series of classic, timeless elegance, especially true of the Coupé and Cabriolet versions. The models now had disc brakes all round and so were more advanced than most competitors. In 1967, the success of the models prompted Mercedes-Benz to offer new, advanced engines with 2.8 litre displacement and fuel injection. The 2.8 litre engine is still used in its basic form today.

The performance

Or what is it like to drive?
As an elevated class of vehicle from the 1950s, it can still be used for comfortable travelling and pleasurable journeys today without any difficulty. The results of a shopping spree disappear into the spacious boot just as effortlessly as extensive travel luggage. Thanks to its mass production technology the cabriolet is reliable and easy to maintain. It draws maximum attention to itself on drives and at events with its colour combination of red over beige with the matched light beige interior equipment, the refined root wood applications and the red soft top. A dream cabriolet that draws a lot of attention to itself and that, in this fabulous condition, will offer its owner many decades of pleasure when driving and at events. It is very much an attractive investment that still has increase potential.
