1983 Mercedes 380SE Saloon
Featured in Classic Car Weekly Wed 21st Feb 2018 ‘Chasing Cars’
The CCW View “This elegant, luxurious and extremely low-mileage Eighties saloon has retained it’s charm and original factory condition. Spotless inside and out, it’s an interesting alternative to more modern fare. It may be 34 years old, but still feels fresh – A testament to the marque”
Here we are offering an exceptional Mercedes 380SE 4 door luxury saloon with only 15623 warranted miles. It is a very rare find and has the super smooth Mercedes V8 engine and automatic box. Finished in a period brown metallic, with cream leather seats and interior, the car is show quality.
ENGINE AND GEARBOX
The CCW View “The car starts, runs and idles perfectly…….the automatic transmission works well in all gears”
The 3.8 litre V8 engine is silky smooth, and complemented by an equally smooth automatic gearbox. It starts instantly, exactly as it did from new, and idles so quietly that inside the car it is virtually silent. It pulls strongly through the gear and is smooth up and down the box, as well as on kickdown. As always the chain drive V8 Mercedes engine is powerful and unstressed, propelling the big car along with ease.
The CCW View “All-in-all, the interior is still in factory condition, right down to the stereo”
The interior is cream in colour and is unmarked. It looks and feel like a car straight out of the showroom. It boasts all the high specifications and equipment expected of a car of its quality from the 80’s, boasting aircon, electric windows all round, heated seats, premium sound system and electric mirrors to name but a few.
The first owner of this stunning German built car was a Mr Peter Ellis, who collected the car from the factory at Stuttgart in March 1983. The car has clearly been beautifully cared for and maintained and is in a totally excellent original condition.
The CCW View “Exterior – Faultless bodywork, period paint and style; Interior – Fastidiously maintained, excellent condition; Mechanicals – Drives like a car half it’s age”
What more can we say? This 34 year old car is in a time warp condition. It is as near to a new car as it is possible to get. The last owner is based in Ireland, and the car will be supplied with a V5 and UK registration. Note that the registration plates seen in the photos were its original UK registration, and may well be retained. We thoroughly recommend this car, as it is unlikely there will be many, if any as good as this.
