The 280E was enormously popular, thanks largely to the
sweet 6 cylinder being equipped with the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection
system with air volume control (first seen
in the 6.9 litre monster 450SEL).
The car had all the style and grace of the larger "S" class cars, but with a much more appealing
price. And the optional sunroof was a pearler, employing
an automatic wind deflector.
The 280E came standard with 4 wheel disc brakes, electric
windows, power steering
and could be optioned with cruise
control, fog lights and central locking.
They are not particularly collectable, but a well cared
for example will provide a high class drive even by todays
