|Odometer reading||38,000 miles|
|Estimate||£59,000 - £68,000|
- Rare example
- Immaculate condition
The values of these wonderful cars are now following the same upward climb as the Pagodas; and in this condition represent an extremely sound investment as well as being a real delight to own and drive. In March 1962, Mercedes-Benz released the 300SE Coupé. The car was featured with a chrome strip, air suspension and the Daimler-Benz top of the range 2996cc, M189 engine and, as such, this vehicle remained deliberately split from the rest of the W111 family to emphasise the differences in the much higher level of specification.
There are now just a few remaining right hand drive examples of the 300SE, especially in the stunning condition of this impressive Mercedes-Benz. It is the perfect example of what can be achieved with a detailed, ground-up restoration of the beautiful W112 model. The paintwork is immaculate, the panel gaps are impressive, and the chromework gleams, even the underside of this classic Mercedes-Benz is clean. We are informed that this coupé is a comfortable delight to drive and regularly turns heads everywhere it goes. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and a file containing various bills and receipts and an original buff logbook. This fantastic example is estimated well given the condition of the car and the rarity of the model.
