The era of the successful Mercedes-Benz W 109 series began in 1965 and lasted until 1972. The luxury sedans with the designation 300 SEL were equipped with air suspension, which distinguished them from the W 108 models with steel springs. Unlike its predecessor (W 112), this version was only available with a long wheelbase. The W 109 had disc brakes on all four wheels as standard. The first version produced had a 3.0-litre 125 kW (170 hp) aluminium engine. This was replaced in 1967 by the 2.8-litre engine also known from the Pagoda, which was almost as powerful but easier to produce and more fuel-efficient. The 6-cylinder engines featured a mechanical six-piston injection pump by Bosch and were supplied as standard with a four-speed manual transmission. However, a four-speed automatic transmission could also be ordered as an optional extra. In 1968, the interior and the design of the steering column were changed. As of 1967, the 300 SEL 6.3 was available with the most powerful V8 engine and 184 kW (250 hp). This version quickly found its way into racing. In 1969, the 2.8-litre engine was replaced by a new 3.5-litre plant. Especially for the American market, there was also a 4.5 litre version. Occasionally W 109 were customized into convertibles and landaulets, possibly the best known being the partially armoured landaulet for Pope Paul VI.
