Sorry Harley Charley but that's a de-balled carbed US version which is a different animal and the painted black grill is totally wrong....and it wears the ugly huge bumpers too...
Now back to the 280 CE !
Correct. I read specs on automobile-catalog.com, and if they are correct, it looks like the North American m110 carbed engines only produce around 120-130 HP. Even the North American m130 have about 160 HP. The injected Euro m110 is the king of all the stock w114 engines with about 185 HP. I've got one in my 280slc stick shift, and it's a blast to drive. Oh how nice it would be to have that combo in a w114 (coupe or sedan).
(I was surprised to read that it looks like the North American m130 w114 has more power than its euro counterpart, and other than the euro m110, is the most powerful stock w114 configuration.)

My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
