The Mercedes-Benz W108 Series premiered at the M180 engine was enlarged to 2.5litres while the fuel-injected 3-litre M108 engine with dual two-barreldowndraft (M129). With increased engine output of110 kW (150 PS; 148 bhp) at 5,500 rpm, 250 SE was one secondfaster to 100 km/h than 250 S and had higher top speed of 193 km/h(120 mph) for both manual and automatic versions.
The “bugs” that plague many new cars were snuffed out long agoin the 250. It was 5 years being readied – on the test track, on the Autobahnsand Italy’s Autostradas, in Africa’s heat and Scandinavia’s cold.
Within reasonable cost at the time, it embodied every technicaladvance known to the engineers of Mercedes-Benz, allied with the comfort of thenew body design. And none of the W108 Sedans are status symbols. All are full5-passenger automobiles, perhaps the most technically sophisticated passengercars in existence at the time. At the time you could load this one and ahalf-ton machine with friends and baggage – and rip around a road-racing coursequicker than many exotic sports cars. And safer, before all.
The 250S abolished the curse of rough-road riding, the solidrear axle. Each wheel on the 250S is separately sprung. Harshness of the roadsurface is damped by the rubber “biscuits” that scotch metal-to-metal jarringbetween suspension and chassis. Its brawny coil springs, wide-stanced shockabsorbers and a front anti-roll torsion bar fend off any hint of wallow, lurchor sway. A pleasant detail: the steering linkage carries its own shockabsorber. Tremors and jolts never reach driver’s hands on the wheel.
The skittish braking – is forgotten on the 250S. Larger 14-inchwheels were introduced to fit the 250’s caliper-type, 10-inch disc brakes.Discs are used on each wheel – and are standard equipment. A sensitiveservo-booster, not driver’s leg muscles, supplies braking effort. A brake control automatically balances frontand rear braking forces – no rear wheel lock-up in emergencies.
Vibration of the engine is smothered by anelectronically-balanced 7-main-bearing crankshaft. A viscose drive cooling fanautomatically cuts out when not needed, saving power while muffling noise atcruising speeds.
The 250S “sips” fuel: 20-25 miles per gallon.
The production figures for the first series from 1965 to 1967 showed129,858 of 250 S/250 SE.
