Description
 
The Mercedes 1960’s 250 SEB Coupes have become in huge demand over the last few years and are one of the highest climbers in the Classic car market. This beautiful 1966 Mercedes Benz 250 SEB Coupe is far tidier in its handling than the wallowing Cadillac and Lincoln coupés that this car was designed to compete with in Beverly Hills. This was a car for mature men (or women) with nothing to prove, drivers more at ease on the crunchy gravel of the golf club drive than pushing their pride and joy to the point of unseemly tyre-screech. Twist the ignition key and the fuel pump whirrs, priming the mechanical injection and the straight six fires into life. Acceleration is authoritative rather than ultra-strong, with wholesome unfaltering pull into the 90s and beyond. Few would have been disappointed by such brisk, torquey pick-up in the 60`s. Owner History: 1st Owner Mr J.K.Scott of Swansea 18-08-1966 2nd Owner Mr A.Ralton of Calne 23-12-1985 3rd Owner Mr D.Darsa of Surrey 11-05-1989 4th Owner Mr J.Nicholson of Haslemere 05-04-1996 5th Owner Mr D.Kennedy of Glasgow 19-06-2013 The Benz cognoscenti have always known how good the W111 coupés are, seeking them out long before the trendies adopted the cars in the 1980s; at one time it seemed as if every photographer in Notting Hill owned one. Beautifully built, rare and timelessly handsome, the coupés are fully deserving of classic status. This is an amazing original Mercedes-Benz, the like we will never see again in this condition. Sure there are some lovely restored cars out their but they are only original once. Few post-war Mercs rank higher in the desirability stakes.
