The /8 has never been my favorite Mercedes but the pre facelift 280E is definitely the one to have, even more than the coupes. love the colour too,

Thumbs up Re: Car of the week

Them "wus" the Days ...... Back in the Seventies I bought a new 280 E every couple of years and got my money back each time when sold. I was living in Brisbane then and sold the cars to a Sydney used car dealer on the phone.
I can't remember why it was so . .....But whose complaining.

They must have been a revelation in their day. 185hp DOHC six when most other cars on the market didn't have half that.

But this looks like a bargain.

The Prince of Arabia would not be seen dead driving a black on black car across the Singing Sands Desert. Imagine the air-conditioner struggling to cope with 50C air temperature and an even higher sand temperature.

Even red would be a challenge.

On the matter of Lloyds auctions; I am not entirely convinced by their statement:

"As with all vehicles sold in the Classic Car Division, they have been well looked after by their previous owners. This is an Auction Sale. This asset is sold under standard auction conditions, as is, where is. High volumes of incoming product prevent our team from being able to inspect all items individually. All photos, descriptions and any condition reports should be used as a guide only and have been compiled after speaking with the owners. To find out more about this lot or to book a live video inspection please contact the Auctioneer Contact which can be found on the Auction Details page. There is no statutory warranty & no cooling off period."

There is an inherent contradiction in that claim and a liberal dose of snake-oil in the sump.

Regards,
Brian

This statement is particularly amusing given some of the stock for sale at Lloyds auctions.

This is just he normal "spiel" when cars are being auctioned off. It tells you a lot about nothing really and is all one could reasonably expect from an Auction House. It is a matter of buyer beware and hope to God that you haven't bought a brumby. Regards Styria
