I actually quite like the color. Certainly not for the introvert. It has single exhaust, whereas the 280 SE had twin. My guess is hence 280 S (W108). It is not a W109, since the rear doors are a tad longer on those.

Me too. And I really like these old Mercedes-Benz with the hubcaps that are the same color than the car. I remember that these models of MB were quite common when I was yong (in the 80s then), but now they are rare :(

Well, for Liberace this would have been a nice car. I`d say that blue would have been a better color for this.....

I'd say he actually succeeded in damaging every single part on this car...and for no good reason to boot. I never understood this scene in the film, to be honest.

He even managed to run under a truck trailer hauling lumber and dent the center of the roof panel in. :(

Skid,I think the idea,was to show the guys in the car how well he could drive by deliberately missing the pillars in the car park and then knocking off the water taps on the wall to show his precision.He then smashes their car to pieces to punish them for having the afront to question his driving ability.

Here is an article which explains that the car is a 1970 (and not 69) 280S W108. This article also shows the paint codes for the W108 series : I can't find the "racing orange". Maybe the car was resprayed ?

Yes, it was -very badly- resprayed. You see that on the pic, where the bumper was torn off. "Racing orange" was not in the W108-colour range.

Jeremy Clarkson watched this scene constantly as a youth and that's how he learned to drive.

250 S badge, not 280. Dating implications?? And where does that leave the detailed calculations at Link to "www.peachparts.com" ?? Or more than one car with an additional 250 S tarted up to look like a proper 70 280 S??
