Styled by Paul Bracq and first shown to the press at the re-opening of the Daimler-Benz museum in February 1961, the W111-series 220SE Coupe was notably rakish. Powered by a 2195cc straight-six engine (120bhp / 151lbft) allied to four-speed manual or optional automatic transmission, the big four-seater coupe boasted all-round independent suspension, disc / drum brakes and a 106mph top speed. Of the 14,173 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Coupes built between 1961 and 1965 just 776 were to right-hand drive specification.
Finished in Blue with Ivory leather upholstery, this particular UK-supplied RHD example is described by the vendor as being in 'average' condition with regard to its original engine, four-speed automatic transmission, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. Confident the old MOTs on file support its recorded mileage of 57,500, he further informs us that the Mercedes-Benz comes with 'a file full of service history from main dealers and marque specialists'. The front passenger seat hide is torn and the brightwork poor in places but it is anticipated that this stylish 220SEb Coupe will be driven to the sale from Manchester. Offered for sale with UK V5C Registration Document, MOT certificate valid until June 2016 and manuals.
