During the winter of 1967/1968, Mercedes-Benz launched its new generation of vehicles. This new model was known as the Stroke Eight. With its improved performance the new 280S could achieve 0-60mph in 12.5 seconds and push on to 115mph. A better arrangement of cylinders and filters improved both cooling and economy. The outstanding qualities of this new vehicle shaped a whole generation of cars. Today it is an established classic.

This 2.8 litre 280S comes in righthand drive with the desirable four speed column shift manual transmission, and a mere 103,000 miles on the odometer.
