A luxury saloon Mercedes will always be at the top of a buyer’s wishlist and this Mercedes W108 is no different. From what we have seen so far this 280SE has mint condition bodywork and paint that is set in rich gold.

After the car was sitting idle for 30 years, money has been spent primarily on the engine rebuild, new steering rack and steering head at the well-established SLSHOP in Stratford-upon-Avon. This car has now benefitted from the rebuild and boasts having a 3.5L V8 engine that was a special edition version at the time with around 11,000 being built.

This right-hand-drive beauty is owned by Eamonn and after 2 years, he is looking to sell the car. This looks to be a sound investment whether you want to keep the car stored or use it for leisurely drives.



During the Covid-19 lockdown period we have decided to keep our community safe by pending all consignment visits. However, our business hasn’t stopped as all our team are working from home and agreeing consignments with our sellers that we will publish fully in the near future.

In the meantime, you will see many ‘Coming Soon’ listings over the next few weeks generated using sellers’ pictures, and as usual, you have the opportunity to purchase vehicles before we visit and subsequently consign / auction them.
