Mercedes-Benz 300SEL


Dealer Comments

** Since 1994 our Family owned business has been specialising in prestige European car sales from our indoor warehouse in Sydney **

-1972 W109 300 SEL 6.3 in Brown with tan leather interior needs no introduction
– The ‘first AMG’, this rare example utilised the famous 6.3 litre M100 V8 engine from the flagship W100 600 with Stuttgart engineers squeezing the powerful V8 into the 6 cylinder engine bay of the W109. This would created the world’s fastest four-door sedan back in 1968 and continues to inspire the muscle car era to this day!
– please disregard the wheels in the video as they were temporary and are now off the car.
– The story goes that the prototype for this car was built in secret by test engineer Erick Waxenberger without the consent or knowledge of Mercedes bosses and only when they heard the distinct rumble of the M100 did they find out about the prototype. Luckily for us, they signed off on the production and the rest is history
– 0 – 100 km/h was 6.6 seconds and standing quarter-mile was under 15 seconds at 14.2 seconds. Top speed was 220 km/h (factory) and this was over 50 years ago.
– Bosch fuel injection
– 4 speed automatic
– Air suspension with automatic level control
– Locking diff
– Ventilated dual circuit 4-wheel power disc brakes
– Power window, pneumatic central locking and power steering
– Original factory wheels

Richard and his team are an absolute pleasure to deal with. I purchased a MY08 Volvo S80 3.2 AWD from Richard to replace my 1998 Volvo S80 T6 and it's been a great car. Low kilometres and great condition, not a single problem! Their showroom is fantastic and friendly service, not pushy at all. Highly recommend to all my family and friends!!!
