Introduced in 1968, Mercedes-Benz’s ‘New Generation’ W114/115 models (otherwise known as the /8 series) were intended to attract new buyers to the marque and hence broaden its customer base. Typically well-engineered, they featured all-round, independent coil-sprung suspension and four-wheel disc brakes together with revised manual and four-speed automatic transmissions. Towards the upper end of the W114 range, the 250 was powered by a 2778cc SOHC six-cylinder engine that developed some 128bhp and 159lbft of torque. Reputedly capable of 109mph, the Stuttgart factory's legendary build quality helped make it a strong sales success.

Described as ‘a truly outstanding example with serious concours potential’, ‘GKL 245L’ is warranted to have covered just 16,600 miles from new. A real ‘timewarp’ machine, it was in single family ownership (father and son) until being acquired by the vendor during 2018. Finished in White with contrasting Green MB-Tex upholstery, the four-door saloon is rated by the seller as being in ‘very good’ (bodywork, paintwork, automatic gearbox, electrical equipment, engine) or ‘excellent’ (interior trim) condition. Retaining its factory-fitted M130 2.8 litre straight-six powerplant there can be few – if any – comparable UK-supplied W114 cars left. Said to be ‘a car that very much speaks for itself’, this extraordinary Mercedes-Benz is offered for sale with original book pack comprising its service book, owner’s manual and warranty card etc.
