Sand Metallic with Interior

The Mercedes-Benz W112 known as the 300SE) was a flagship in Mercedes-Benz’s line-up during the 1960s. The car, produced in modifications: coupé, cabriolet and was identical to the standard Mercedes-Benz Fintail car, but was fitted the M189 big-block six-cylinder as well as more luxurious such as air suspension, power automatic transmission, more interior wooden veneer and trim, among other

To fully understand the significance of the one has to remember, that prior generation of vehicles consisted of 4-cylinder 180/190 series, 220 series of sedan, coupe and a sports 190SL coupe and all built on a unified Pontoon chassis. Topping them was the 300 series of sedan, coupe, and roadster, hand-built and based on models, but compensating this luxurious features and priced that these vehicles made available only to of royal pedigree. In addition was the 300SL coupe/roadster, built on a tubular platform.

In the late 1950s, Daimler to initiate a new policy economy of and decided to unify its luxury and range in its new family of vehicles, and in 1957 stopped assembly of all 300S W187s. In 1958, the fuel-injected W128 220SE in coupe and cabriolet versions, and 1959 the Mercedes-Benz showcased its new fintail models. First the 220/220S/200SE W111 sedans, were joined in 1961 by the W111 coupe and cabriolet and the cylinder W110 190 and 190D. a replacement for the big W189 Type 300 limousine was still being So, Mercedes-Benz decided to break its taboo and placed the big six-cylinder engine from the W189 a W111. This was a big gamble, as 300 customers would not see kindly exquisite vehicles replaced by an car, but the sales of the W112 otherwise.

Mercedes-Benz took a large set of in terms of marketing to separate the from the W111 including brochures, showrooms etc. the cars were adorned almost double the chrome that were available to the bigger 14 rims and features as power steering, pneumatic and automatic gearbox as standard manual would return as an The car cost almost double the of the top range 220SE! In 1963 went on to create the long-wheelbase sometimes called 300SEL. the 300SEs topped the Mercedes-Benz with the M189 big-six producing 160 hp (170 after and giving a top speed of 180 km/h after ’64, both 175 and 185 for automatic transmission).

However the W112 turned out to be a short-lived venture. In 1963 showcased the true replacement for the in the new 600 limousine (W100), for the sedan, meant that the production fell drastically if in 1962 such cars, the next this fell to 1.382, and in with the coming of the W108/109 the sedan W112 went history, with a total of 300SEs and SELs. The rarity of the car is punctuated by the fact that the with respect to the W111, in for every W112 sedan was 24 W111s rolling off the production by 1964 this was almost The Coupe and cabriolet fared possibly because the W111 was offered as a single 220SE and the 300SE was the only stable On the whole a 5:1 ratio was kept, and a of 3.127 2-door 300SEs produced by 1967. Unlike the there was no next-generation replacement for the as the W111 was produced in par with the but the replacement for the 300SE came in of the 280SE in 1967, and the V8 powered 3.5 in 1969.

Although it’s very production run, the W112, Mercedes-Benz to tie together its top range with its mid-range series. In so, it ended the previous nomenclature of and allowed a common practice of engines between one chassis and
