This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SE is finished in Almandine Red Metallic (587) over Beige Leather (265) and powered by a 3.2-liter M104 engine paired to a factory-optioned dogleg manual 5-speed transmission. This short wheelbase W140 was acquired by the selling dealer in October 2021 and imported to the United States from Spain in 2022. The odometer shows 100k kilometers (~62k miles) on the analog odometer, approximately 100 of which have been added by the selling dealer. The car has since been registered and titled in the United States and is sold with a clean Florida title. In preparation for the sale the dealer has replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and spark plugs for an ignition service. Features include manually adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control with Rest function, an adjustable steering column, an aftermarket Kenwood head unit, and a front-folding armrest. This 300SE is offered with recent service records, technical inspection stamps, two keys, and a clean Florida title from the selling dealer.
The Almandine Red Metallic (587) exterior is accented with paint-matched lower cladding on all four doors and the front and rear bumpers. The dealer reports that both sides of the car appear to have been painted previously and the hood shows some light paint imperfections by way of light scratches. Notable features include heat-insulating glass, amber-colored marker lights, Euro-market glass headlamps, and a fixed antenna. Detailed photos of the exterior can be viewed in the gallery.
Factory 16″ eight-hole alloy wheels are wrapped in Nankang tires measuring 225/60 all around. Silver-painted original center caps are shown mounted with no signs of flaking.

The original Becker head unit has been replaced with an aftermarket Kenwood head unit featuring Bluetooth, auxiliary, and USB functions. The Beige leather, wood, and carpets present with minimal wear.
A four-spoke airbag steering wheel frames a 260-kph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, fuel economy, and fuel level along with an analog clock. The analog odometer indicates 100k kilometers (~62k miles) and there are no warning lights illuminated.

If less is more this 300SE has it all! Just to recap, this short wheelbase S-Class features a slick top, manual seats, and three pedals with that oh-so-good Dogleg 5-Speed manual.

Pair these features with Sacco-era design cues and a timeless color combination for one of the rarest W140 examples we’ve ever seen. The W140 has long been regarded as the last of the "bank vault" build quality Mercedes-Benzes and is arguably unparalleled in today’s market.
