DESCRIPTION

The futuristic looking 'Fintail. ... In Summer 1965, the new Mercedes-Benz W108 sedan was launched and production of the first generation of W111s ended. Earlier in May, Mercedes-Benz gave its budget-range W110 Series a major facelift, opting to continue producing the W111 as a new model 230S. The previously 4-cylinder W110, received a 6-cylinder but was practically identical in terms of chassis and drivetrain. The 230S became a flagship model of the Mercedes-Benz mid-range cars, eers , 6 cylinder engine , no rust at all , bbs standard wheels , car colour Redffectively predecessors to today's E-class.The 230S was visually identical to the 220S, with a modernised 2306 cm3 M180 engine with twin Zenith carburettors producing 120 horsepower at 5400 rpm. Top speed 176 km/h (109 mph) (174 km/h (108 mph) on auto), acceleration 13 seconds (15 on auto). In this final configuration, a total of 41,107 cars were built through January 1968, when the last of 4-door 'fintails' left the production line. Between 1959 and 1968 a total of 337,803 W111s were builtThis particular car has come back to our shores from South Africa as a fresh import and really does look stunning with its deep black coachwork and contrasting red leather upholstery. The car is showing 116,000 miles which looks to be correct but cannot be warranted. It has not yet been registered in the UK, so the new owner will be the first on the log book.
