The Mercedes-Benz 280SE five-passenger Cabriolets were virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship and were demanding a lavish price. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood accented by the gentle use of brightwork. The leather upholstery was thick and comfortable, and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Perhaps, unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations.
