The year 1971 would be the last time buyers could get their hands on the Mercedes Benz 280SE Coupe direct from the showroom floor. First premiered at the 1959 Frankfurt Auto Show, the series which began with the 220SE and 220SEb would become the postwar answer the automaker needed to emerge from World War II as a reputable and modern contender in the luxury sports car market. Many collectors agree that the 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SE Coupe is the culmination of more than a decade of advancements and styling changes, and makes the ideal collector car for those looking for a true example of German engineering from this period. Large and commanding yet graceful, the 280SE Coupe remains one of the most sought-after luxury cars in the market today.
The 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SE Coupe was offered in standard form with a 2.8L engine, Bosch mechanical fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes. The hood and grille were also lowered by a couple of inches to give the car a more modern appearance. Running alongside the 280SE Coupe would be the 280SE 3.5 Coupe and Convertible, which offered a 3.5L V-8 engine. Well-maintained 280SE models are prized possessions today and command strong prices in the classic car market, particularly those with the larger engine.
