Premiere of the « Stroke Eight » coupés in 1968

Half a century of exclusive sportiness in the upper mid-range series: in November 1968, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the 114 model series coupés. In addition to the 250 C with the then most powerful saloon engine, the 250 CE is also available, whose six-cylinder injection engine is reserved for the coupés. The two-door long-distance vehicles round off the top end of the « Stroke Eight » model range. Today, the coupés are among the sought-after classics on offer from ALL TIME STARS, the Mercedes-Benz Classic dealer. The premiere 50 years ago marked the starting point of the history of coupés in the upper mid-range series by Mercedes-Benz.
