  • 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.

    Highlights

    • Safety steering system (from 1967)
    • Hydropneumatic compensating spring on rear axle
    • Air suspension (300 SEL, 300 SEL 6.3, 300 SEL 3.5)
    • Top-of-the-range 300 SEL 6.3 model with an output of 250 hp (184 kW), powerful V8 engine and sports car performance (from 1968)
