1985 Mercedes S-class (W126) 280SE for sale at motodrome


A Mercedes from the days when excellent build quality was a priority, this is an lovely low mileage example.

Usual specification for one of these – the correct alloy wheels,  automatic transmission, electric windows, electric sunroof, electric passenger mirror, central locking, front centre armrest, and that beautiful period interior.

Also fitted with rear seat belts, a graduate tinted windscreen,  period radio/cassette with electric aerial, and MB overmats.


Odometer reading just 69000m, and the V5 shows just one private owner since 2001, who’s kept it garaged in his ownership and cared for it lovingly. The owner previous to him  also had it for a long time, from 1988 to 2001.

History-wise we have the original service book with 12 service stamps in it, and old MOT’s back to 1988

We have the full book pack

Comes with MOT to July 2024 (with no advisories) and 6 months warranty on sale

Drives absolutely superbly – whilst, with the 2.8 litre straight six engine it’s no sports car, it simply wafts along, and feels like it was hewn from a solid block.

It’s one of the nicest, most unmolested examples I’ve seen, has clearly led a very sheltered life, and I don’t think a new owner will be in any way disappointed

At the very bottom of the page you’ll find our usual 2 videos – a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, which form part of the description.
