To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Essen event, 24 - 27 June 2020. Repainted in attractive Light Ivory with contrasting Palomino trimUS-delivery exampleRecent mechanical freshening In every generation, Mercedes-Benz has built a two-door coupe and a soft-top cabriolet on its mainline sedan chassis to provide a distinctive automobile for its more affluent customers. Two years after the W111-bodied sedans with their American-derived rear fender fins were introduced in 1959, stylist Paul Bracq penned a more attractive coupe and cabriolet body style. With no body panels or major interior trim components shared in common with their plebeian sedan siblings, these models were assembled on their own line at the Sindelfingen factory outside Stuttgart. The addition of chrome side trim, burl-wood interior fascia, and distinctive 14-inch wheels added touches that appealed to buyers then and collectors today.However, the M127 2.2-litre engines were their weak link, providing barely enough power to move the heavier body style with its extra body reinforcement required to compensate for the pillarless design. Their coil-spring suspension also didnt provide the necessary ride comfort commensurate with the price being charged.Consequently, by 1962 the engineers had added a second engine, the M189 (a 3-litre, six-cylinder engine with aluminium cylinder heads), to the lineup, which produced 185 SAE horsepower with an autobahn-capable top speed of 115125 mph. The W112 chassis of this example also was built on a much more comfortable air suspension. This car was originally shipped new to the United States but has recently returned to its native Germany. Upon its arrival, the cars air-suspension system was completely rebuilt, and it has been fitted with a new water cooler and new hoses in the engine bay. According to information provided by the consignor, the engine is original, but the gearbox has been replaced. The colour code 573 on the trim tag in the engine compartment indicates this car was originally painted dark Bordeaux. The 300 SEs stately elegance make it very desirable and collectable, and it shall convey its next owner in style and elegance with the top up or down.Neulackierung in attrativem hellelfenbein mit abgesetztem Leder dattelErstauslieferung in die USAKürzlich überholte MechanikIn jeder Mercedes-Benz Generation gab es auf Basis der großen Limousinen auch zweitürige Coupés und Cabriolets für die betuchte Kundschaft, die sich abheben wollte. Zwei Jahre nach der Vorstellung der W111 Modellreihe mit ihren vom US-Geschmack inspirierten Heckflossen entwarf Designer Paul Bracq zwei attraktivere Coupé- und Cabrioletvarianten. Diese in einem eigenen Werk in Sindelfingen hergestellten Fahrzeuge hatten mit den bodenständigeren Limousinen kein Blechteil gemein. Seitliche Chromverzierungen, ein Wurzelholzarmaturenbrett und auffällige 14-Zoll-Räder sprachen Käufer von damals und Sammler von heute an. Allerdings waren anfangs die nur 2,2 liter großen M127 Sechszylindermotoren ihre Achillesferse, sie boten nur gerade genug Leistung, um die durch Bodenverstärkungen wegen der fehlenden B-Säule schwerer geratenen Zweitürversionen anzutreiben. Auch wurde das konventionelle Stahlfahrwerk als nicht ausreichend für ein Fahrzeug dieser Preisklasse angesehen. So hatten die Entwickler schon 1962 eine Lösung parat, den M189 genannten 3-Liter Sechszylinder mit Alu-Zylinderkopf, dessen Leistung von zunächst 160 PS (ab 1964 dann 170 PS) Höchstgeschwindigkeiten von bis zu 200 km/h ermöglichte. Das W112 Chassis verfügte darüber hinaus über die sehr viel komfortablere Luftfederung. Dieses hier angebotene Exemplar wurde zunächst in die USA ausgeliefert und kehrte kürzlich in die deutsche Heimat zurück. Nach der Ankunft wurden das Luftfedersystem komplett überholt sowie ein neuer Kühler und Kühlschläuche verbaut. Dem Einlieferer zufolge verfügt der Wagen über den Originalmotor und ein Austauschgetriebe. Der Farbcode 573 im Motorraum deutet auf eine Originallackierung in dunkelbordeauxrot hin. Die elegante Erscheinung des 300 SE macht ihn zu einem unter Sammlern sehr gesuchten Fahrzeug. Egal ob mit offenem oder geschlossenem Verdeck wird er bei seinem neuen Besitzer eine sehr gute Figur machen.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/es20.
