Owner comments:
3 owner car. Second owner purchased the car in Germany in 1994 with 10k miles on it. Original fitted with velour interior, second owner reportedly had Mercedes install blue leather. Titled/registered in Oregon. comments:
We're serious fans of the non-US 123 gasoline six cylinders, whether they be a coupe, sedan or wagon.This is an unmolested 123 Coupe with the high output Euro 2.8 liter twin-cam engine. The Euro specification 2.8 liter twin-cam six cylinder 280CE was rated at 180 HP, a full 40 HP more than the US specification 280CE. Even with moderate US mandated EPA modifications, these Euro models are far livelier than their US counterparts.

This 280CE retains it tidy original short bumpers and flush Euro headlamps and is nicely optioned. The images reveal a nicely preserved coupe with excellent paint depth and gloss. The interior is in excellent condition with nicely preserved Zebrano wood, an exceptionally well preserved dash pad/glovebox door and a nice headliner. Pedal wear is minimal and supports the low mileage indicated.

The engine bay is nice and tidy and features a core support that retains all data/ID plates and appropriate decals. Spare tire appears original and the car is fitted with a catalytic converter. The trunk area is spotless with all hardware appearing unblemished. Based on 1981 production figures for US models (524 imported), this is an exceedingly rare car. I've owned 3 Euro 280CEs over the last 90 days and can say they are a joy to drive. And due to their rarity, you'll be a hit at any classic car event.
