1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SE

A little over a month ago I took a look at a 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SE. On the surface, a 1991 300SE isn’t all that special, until you noticed the Bornite Metallic paint of course. I went into a little detail on why that paint matters and the data doesn’t lie when you see the selling prices of two nearly identical cars with one painted in Bornite and one painted in a more common color. Well wouldn’t you know, the next generation S-Class, the W140, had the privilege of carrying on this color as well. This 1992 300SE checks in with a fair amount of miles with nearly 185,000, but don’t kid yourself thinking you are going to get a deal on it. Also, there is one other problem if you want to own this car. It is in Germany.

How I wish this car was stateside. Outside of the S600, the pre-facelift 300SE is my favorite iteration of the W140. The silky smooth M104 with the contrasting lower cladding and the tiny little parking poles that extend from the rear panels. I’m all for it. It would have to take a nearly perfect example for me to actually buy a 300SE, and this one is just that. Yes, it has some miles, but it hardly looks the part. All that is missing is the hood star, but that’s an easy fix if there ever was one.

The price of of €12.999 ($14,610) is about what I expected when I laid eyes on this one. Those in the know realize that a Bornite pulls a premium on any car, with this one being no different. Would I pay it right now? Well, probably not. Just under $15,000 is a lot for a 300SE. A Bornite S600? Yes. This car being in Germany probably skews the pricing a little, but whoever is selling this is no fool. They know what they have, as obscure as it is, and are asking a premium for it.

  1. I’d say this car is nearly 10k overpriced. Maybe the German market is different. I do like the color though.

  2. It has 185 000 km which is about 115 000 miles. Which is not that much for a 27 years old car and that that is why the condition is what it is.

    And I agree the price is too high, even for that colour.

  3. Way overpriced… My 99 s320 with 33k miles — immaculate and well cared for— wouldn’t bring that amount even in California where it’s led a protected life after first having been picked up at the factory… My 00 sl500 — in even better shape — with only 25k miles — would bring more — but not that much more… unless there’s something else of a special nature about this subject w140 — I’m perplexed with its pricing …
