At the time of its production, the 1968 Mercedes Benz 250SE W108 was a welcome change from Mercedes’ previous fintails models. Designated the W108 internally, the 250SE established itself as a notably luxurious alternative to the earlier sedans of the W111 line. Designed for the elite business executive and well-heeled buyer, the design, interior space, and its handling were among the most popular reasons buyers chose the 1968 250SE. Even today, the timeless design of the 1968 Mercedes 250SE does not fail to impress. Those buyers interested in purchasing a 250SE model should note that although they do not have the more desirable V8 engines, they still command relatively high price tags for a sedan that was mass produced – of course if they are in good condition. Production of the 250SE ran from 1965 to 1968, in which time approximately 55,000 units were produced.
Interestingly, a black 250SE was used in the 1983 James Bond film Octopussy, when James Bond (Roger Moore) steals the car from General Orlov (Steven Berkoff). Later in the film, a trap punctured the tires and Bond famously drives the car along a railroad track in pursuit of a train and, just before the car collides head-on with another train and is thrown into a river, Bond is able to jump onto the train to save himself.
