Mercedes Benz - W108/W109 (1965 to 1972)
The Mercedes-Benz W108/W109 model series was a large luxury car line built by Mercedes-Benz from 1965 through 1972. The W108/W109 was a replacement for the higher end of the "Fintail" sedan range, with three-box styling similar to the W111/W112 coupes. The somewhat controversial fins of the so-called earlier W111 "Heckflosse" were eliminated by designer Paul Bracq. The initial lineup featured three W108 (short-wheelbase, coil-sprung suspension) models: the 250S, 250SE and 300SE.

 

The long-wheelbase W109 featured one model, the 300SEL, which was equipped with self-levelling air suspension. The 6.3 was launched in the late 60s and was the flagship model in the Merecdes line-up. It was deemed the world's best car and fastest production saloon, and held this title for many years.

The W108/W109 vehicles carried over much of the basic engineering principles from previous models, but had many refinements to make them some of the most well equipped cars of the era. The 300SE and 300SEL were especially well appointed, featuring burr walnut dashboards, automatic transmission and power windows. The 300SEL 4.5 featured a sophisticated and advanced 4.5L V8 petrol engine, which was carried over to the W116 S-class and R107 SL roadster, as was the smaller 3.5L unit.

 

The W108/109 line consisted of the following models: W108 (Short-wheelbase, coil-sprung suspension)

  • 250S
  • 250SE
  • 300SE
W109 (Long-wheelbase, self-levelling air suspension)
  • 300SEL
