Mercedes-Benz 220 SE (series W 111, 1959 to 1965), reconstructed by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Centre in 2011 for classic endurance racing

The racing “fintail” from Mercedes-Benz

Stuttgart – In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Mercedes-Benz enjoyed much success in international endurance races and rallies. The period at the start of the 1960s was shaped above all by the 220 SE and 300 SE “fintail” saloons with six-cylinder engines.

To commemorate the motorsport successes of the period and to keep the tradition of the brand’s exceptional racing history alive while also making historic motorsport even more attractive for private drivers, Mercedes-Benz Classic reconstructed a type 220 SE “fintail” saloon (series W 111) in 2011, for use in historic motorsport events.
