The selected optional equipment includes electric windows front and rear, headrests for driver and front passenger, an electric sunroof and the automatic sunroof as well as the automatic transmission with center shift.

The vehicle was uncompromisingly restored a few years ago, investing approximately € 70,000. Accordingly, it presents itself today in almost mint condition. The extremely rare color aqua blue (917) harmonizes very well with the dark blue leather interior and ensures many enthusiastic looks.

History of the series
The successor to the W 111 series was designed by Paul Bracq. The body was hardly changed, apart from the now missing tail fins, and a 2.5-liter engine was added to the engine range. This was followed in 1970 by the 3.5-liter V8, the first Daimler-Benz engine with electronic intake manifold injection (Bosch D-Jetronic).

The W 108 was available exclusively as a sedan in two wheelbases. As the forerunner of the S-Class, it had plenty of extras to offer in addition to good standard equipment, such as four power windows, air conditioning, an electric sunroof and headrests.

The silky smooth 3.5 liter V8 makes this vehicle the perfect companion on relaxing road trips.
