280ce is it one of mercedes best coupes?

Just a thought is the w123 280ce one of the best looking coupes out there? Heres a few pic's of m7 78 coupe.

From about '74 to about '99 or '00, Mercedes built very little that turns my head. Yours though, is a nice looking car!

I agree that after '74, the body styling was just ok. At least, it didn't do to much for me. I like your car. Looks excellent.

Great coupe! I just sold my 1985 300CD and miss it already. I think there is something very utilitarian about the W123 design. It had no pretense of being anything more than a reliable car with a dignified stance that was meant to last if well-cared for.

yeah its not bad i really like it but i think that the colour makes a huge difference, when there in white and mist green the more lighter colours it doesnt bring out the crome as much. I also have a white w123 sedan which even know its white it suits the four door.

I love all the coupes but I personally believe the 111 3.5 coupe is the best looking coupe. I have always loved the design. Great color-I think the dark metallics look great on the coupes.
