MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE 3.5 COUPE (1969-1971) CAR HISTORY

Car review on MERCEDES-BENZ 280SE 3.5 COUPE

Elegant Mercedes-Benz Will coupes and convertibles were based on new mid-range Will saloons, though styling — by Paul Braqe who later penned the 230SL — was bereft of the saloon's clumsy fins. He drew a tight, handsome, Detroit-influenced pillar less hardtop for the coupe, with fashionable wraparound front and rear screens, squared-off rear haunches and stacked lights at the front, glass-bubble covers echoing the design of the top-of-the-range Fintail saloons. Doors were long and heavy. The rounded profile of the flanks — with a crease to break up the flat expanse of steel — suggested weight and solidity.


For 1962, the 220 was joined by the air-suspended, fully disc-braked power-steered 300SE coupe using the big alloy 160 bhp three-liter straight six first seen in the Fintail saloons a year earlier. It was all change again for 1965 when the 250 replaced the 220 range.

From this point, the two-door cars took technical lead from the new W108 S-Class saloons that replaced the upper-range Fintails that year. With higher final drive gearing and bigger, 14-in (35.6-cm), wheels, the 250 coupe was almost as quick as the 300. It shared the bigger car's disc brakes. Thus, it seemed perfectly rational to Benz-watchers when Stuttgart -rationalized the coupe range with a single 280SE model in 1967, the smooth, flexible 2778cc unit pumping 160 real horsepower in fuel-injected form.


The final and best Will coupe derivative was the 1969 V-eight, confusingly badged 280SE 3.5. Conceived to appease American buyers weaned on lazy, high-torque V-eights, this single-cam per bank electronically injected engine gave a full-blooded 200 bhp at 5800rpm in "dirty" European tune, good for 125 mph (201 kph) with 60 (96) in under 10 seconds.


Still top of the Mercedes range-if you discount the 600 Limousine - the W111 two-door stayed in production until 1971, when it was replaced by the 350SLC.
