At the 1965 Frankfurt Motor Show the W108 (with short or long wheelbase and "classic" suspension) and the W109 (with a wheelbase lengthened by 10 cm, pneumatic suspension, more refined finishes, presence of a greater number of chrome on the outside and more extensive use of woods inside the passenger compartment). Although it was a completely new car, the new flagship confirmed the basic technical setting of the Heckflosse (rear-wheel drive, 4-speed manual transmission or 3 or 4-speed automatic transmission, ball-bearing steering), trapezoidal front and rear axle swing arms. The latter, however, proposed a novelty, represented by a transverse shock absorber in place of the transverse spring mounted on the Heckflosse. As always, coil springs and hydraulic shock absorbers completed the suspension picture. The brakes were disc brakes on all wheels. The engine range was initially composed of three engines, all 6-cylinder, two of which derived from the old 2.2-liter mounted on the 220 W187 of 1951. The third engine was the 3-liter M189, derived directly from the unit he had equipped at the time. the 300 "Adenauer". Over the years, the W108 and W109 models proved to be a success: the customers, always very wealthy, appreciated their comfort, roominess, performance and safety on the road (even if the rear of the W108, in case of rain, gave some headaches).
Here you can find a beautifully preserved example of the W108 series, only two owners and still with the service booklet and warranty present.
