This Handmade 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 Cabriolet Needs Someone To Cherish It

An enthusiast on the lookout for a classic four-seater convertible should have no trouble in taking home this beautifully restored Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet, if the budget allows it, that is.

Hand-built in 1970 to the highest standards of the time and aimed against the Rolls-Royce and Bentley drop-tops of the era, this right-hand drive collectable is believed to be the only one of its kind on sale right now, and responsible for finding it a new home are HexagonClassics.

The vendor keeps the asking price a secret, but it’s known that similar examples in pristine condition that have went through a proper restoration process usually go for anywhere between €200,000 and €400,000 ($225,000-$450,000).

Speaking of restorations, this Mercedes-Benz 280 Cabriolet has been brought back to factory condition by Sleeping Beauties of Brisbane, Australia, and it features a black paint contrasted by the red leather interior. It also packs a six-layer folding roof, perfect sound-deadening, electric windows, power steering and a powerful V8 engine that is connected to a four-speed automatic gearbox.

Those who simply have to see it and touch it before making a final decision should know that it can be viewed at Hexagon’s central showroom in London, UK.
