This beautiful Mercedes-Benz 250SE Coupe has been completely restored and is good cosmetic and technical shape. It seems the car was delivered new in Belgium on the 6th of April 1967. The car has a comprehensive history going back to 1984. All the parts bills for the restoration are also present.
In 2010 the car had been owned by one Belgium family for some considerable time, when the car was passed from father to son. In June of 2016 with an odometer reading of 69.160 kilometres, it was decided that the car was in need of restoration. The son restored the exterior, but left the car as it was technically. In April 2016 the car was exported to the Netherlands with an odometer reading of 70.656 kilometres.
The new Dutch owner started finishing the restoration in May of 2016 in his own workshop. Many items were addressed by himself, the specialized items by well-known Mercedes-Benz specialist Van Dijk from Lisserbroek. If you combine all the costs of the restoration, excluding the owners own labor, the total exceeds €23.000. In the beginning of 2018 the car was completed and brought to Classic Park. The owner was eager to start on his new project: a 170V Combi.
This W111 250SE coupe is a real S-klasse in terms of driving characteristics and equipment. This particular car distinguishes itself from the rest with a factory original sunroof and a very elegant two-tone paintjob. These W111 were the last handbuild Mercedes-Benz cars to roll of the production line and will remain timeless classics and stable investments.
In 1960 Mercedes starts production of the W111 coupe. The main difference between the coupe and the sedan is in the styling. Since most of the chassis and drivetrain were to be unified with the sedan, the scope was focused on the exterior styling. The front end was similar to the sedan, the rear featured small tailfins, subtle compared to the fintails' and evocative of the later squarish styling of the W108/W109.
In early autumn 1965 the 250SE superseded the 220SE, which featured the new 2496 cm3 M129 engine. Producing 150 hp (112 kW) at 5500 rpm, it gave the vehicle a significant improvement in top speed, 193 km/h (120 mph) (188 km/h (117 mph) with automatic transmission), and 0–100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 12 seconds (14 with automatic transmission). Visible changes include new 14-inch rims, which came with new hub cabs and beauty rings accommodating the larger disk brakes and new rear axle from the W108 family. In total only 5259 250SE’s were made.
