First registered on 8th July 1970, this elegant Mercedes-Benz 280SE coupé was delivered new to an umbrella manufacturer in Saarbrücken, Germany. The car stayed in Germany until 2014 and will be offered with an old-style German 'Kraftfahrzeugbrief' - 'Pappdeckel'.

Comprehensively restored between 2004 and 2005 on behalf of the then owner, proprietor of a German Mercedes-Benz agency, the car retains its original electric steel sunroof, electric windows, and automatic gearbox, and is finished in its original colour scheme of silver metallic with red leather interior.

Importantly, it comes with an independent German specialist report from 2012 testifying to its generally very good condition. This report states that the paintwork does not show defects or any wear, and the chassis and body are in very good condition with doors, bonnet and boot fitting well. The brightwork is in generally very good condition, while all the tinted glass was renewed during restoration. The original (matching numbers) engine starts and runs well with no detectable smoke, and the automatic transmission changes well.

There is no excessive play in the steering or wheel bearings; all shock absorbers and springs have been exchanged; and the rear axle has been overhauled. The tyres (Michelin MXV-P) are in good order. The rigorous German report concludes with a verdict of 'Condition 2' (fully operational without defects, missing parts or cosmetic defects) and also contains some pictures of the restoration.
