    Mercedes 250SE Review

    Overall Summary

    In 1965 Mercedes showed off its revolutionary new 250SE in Frankfurt, introducing a different type of modern car to the market. The design was revolutionary in terms of its sleek body work, but maintained the prestige that made the car a Mercedes. The 250SE began rolling off the production line in Germany in 1965 and continued to do so until 1968 when further developed designs superseded the car. Many people regard the 250SE as an important car for the manufacturer, moving it into the modern era.

    The 250SE was fitted with a new development in Mercedes technology; a fuel-injected overhead-camshaft, something completely new to the car market that engineers had been working on in Germany. The car also had another new development; a hydro pneumatic compensating spring as part of its rear suspension allowing for a smoother ride. Combined with brake discs on all four wheels and the fact the front and rear suspension was also independent of each other, it made for impressive handling and performance tool for the driver. The large 2.5 litre engine which ran on six cylinders was capable of over 150 bhp and in turn produced 5,600 rpm, making this one of Mercedes faster production cars.
