280se 3.5

Interior of a W111, 280SE 3.5 coupe.

Very near the top of the range (only the 600, 6.3, and convertible version were higher), yet ordered with manual transmission, no air conditioning, no sunroof, and manual windows.  

On the positive side, those missing options resulted in lower weight, and when coupled with a manual transmission and fuel-injected V8, was the sportiest of all W111’s. (as far as I know, the manual was not available in the convertible).
