Lot Details
1982 Mercedes-Benz 280CEW Auto Coupé
Registration no. XEL 757X
Chassis no. 12305322026022
Engine no. 11098822008058
Manufactured between 1976 and 1985, the 280CE continued the Mercedes-Benz tradition of building luxurious coupé versions of its class-leading saloons. A short-wheelbase version of the contemporary W123 (200-series) ‘small’ saloon, the 280CE was mechanically similar to the smaller-engined 230C but came with the 280E’s superb 2.8-litre, double-overhead-camshaft straight-six. According to The Motor magazine, “the 280CE has the performance to justify the sporting 2+2 concept. And this performance enables the car’s outstanding road manners to be explored and appreciated to the full.”
With 185bhp on tap, the 280CE did indeed offer a more than adequate level of performance, with a top speed of 118mph and a 0-60mph time of 9.5 seconds, while official fuel consumption tests returned a figure of 27.4mpg at 56mph. There was an extensive list of available extras which, if specified in its entirety, pushed the UK base price from £11,950 to getting on for £15,000.
This right-hand drive example has been in the current owner’s possession for the past three years. The vehicle is offered with service book stamped up to 1993, owner’s manual, assorted MoTs dating back to 1998, road fund licence/MoT to February 2006 and Swansea V5 registration document.
