The Appeal

It's not hard to argue that in the 1970s, Mercedes-Benz were building the finest cars in Europe. The W109 was a top-notch example of this, with stylish Paul Bracq bodywork, a stylish chrome grille and a comfortable cabin all headed off with some of the best build quality on the market. This particular model is powered by the legendary 6,300cc M100 V8 engine, delivering a substantial 300hp, making it faster than contemporary Ferraris - which was no mean feat in '71.

This vehicle has been maintained in its original condition and never restored. Always garaged in Spain, this vehicle has been well-preserved. Recent improvements such as new air suspension elements, a complete exhaust line, ball joints, and silent blocks ensure that this vehicle remains in top running condition.
