    Mercedes-Benz 250 S to 300 SEL 6.3 W 108/W 109 (1965 - 1972).

Model series W 108 and W 109.

The saloons of model series W 108 and W 109, which replaced the 6-cylinder “fintails” in 1965, were characterised by their timelessly elegant styling and  generously proportioned windows. Like their predecessor, they were available in a version with a 10-cm-longer wheelbase.

A special highlight was the 300 SEL 6.3, which was launched in 1968. This new top-of-the-line model featured the powerful V8 engine from the Mercedes-Benz 600 and provided its proud owners not only with the ultimate in comfort and luxurious appointments but also with sports-car-like performance.


  • Safety steering system (from 1967)
  • Hydropneumatic compensating spring on rear axle
