Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor show in 1965, the W108 series set a new standard for mass produced luxury saloons. Designed by Paul Bracq, who is also known for designing the Mercedes Benz W113 Pagoda. He took inspiration from the W111 luxury convertibles and coupes which are often mistaken as part of the W108 series.

In 1967 to 1972 the second series of W108’s was introduced with in line 6-cylinder overhead cam engines now upgraded to 2.8 litres (M130 engine series) with the 280s fueled by two twin barrel downdraft Zenith carburetors and the 280se featuring mechanical Bosch injection. The W108 series was an amazing success known for reliability and durability and are sought after collector cars today
