Display your taste in cars by owning the Grille for a 1973 Mercedes Benz 280 SEL. This grille has scratches in a few places from regular use, some of the metal is slightly bent and there is a gash on the on the reverse side, but is otherwise in good condition. It would be a great addition to someone’s collection. The item does not come with an emblem. But when you hang the grille on the wall, your friends will believe you used to drive a 1973 Mercedes Benz 280 SEL.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class, formerly known as Sonderklasse (German for “special class”), is a series of flagship vehicles produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz, a division of German company Daimler AG. The classification was officially introduced in 1972 with the W116 S-Class, which succeeded previous Mercedes-Benz models dating to the mid-1950s. The S-Class has served as the top model for Mercedes for over fifty years in its various incarnations.
The S-Class has debuted many of the company’s latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features, and safety systems (such as the first seatbelt pretensioners). The S-Class has ranked as the world’s best-selling luxury sedan, and its latest generation, the W222 S-Class, premiered in 2013. As in previous iterations, the W221 S-Class is sold in standard- and long-wheelbase versions; I4, V6, V8, V12, diesel and hybrid powertrains are offered. All models built in Mexico or sold in the United States are only available in long wheelbase.
“S-Class” is the anglicized version of “S-Klasse,” an abbreviation of the previously mentioned Sonderklasse. In automotive terms it refers to “a specially outfitted car.” Although used colloquially for decades, following its official application in 1972, six generations of officially named S-Klasse sedans have been produced. Previous two-door coupe models of the S-Class were known as SEC and later S-Coupe.
