This 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280CE (W114) in icon gold gets more attention than any other car that we have driven at Love Classics. The elegantly stylish theme has so much presences on the road, it's a real head turner.
As well as the regular W114 saloon model, Mercedes-Benz also continued the tradition of offering a pillarless coupe form. This car was no exception - they retained the length and wheelbase but had less passenger room, and more style. This example comes with the 185bhp twin-cam 2.8-litre engine to offer genuine performance.
The car has a new genuine Mercedes-Benz black vinyl interior, electric windows, electric sunroof and modern sound system with wireless connectivity.
This car makes you want to drive slow as it's such a pleasure. Solid and dependable, and increasingly cool today.

Please note our cars can't be taken out of the UK. All our vehicles are tracked, if any are taken to any Port, Airport or race track we are notified as soon as the car arrived on the premises.

The security deposit amount that must be pre-authorised in advance of the rental is £2000. This is done with a debit card or credit card on the day.
AVAILABILITY / RELIABILITY We regularly service our cars and make sure they are as reliable as possible, but even so they may break down from time to time. We only have one of each type of car, so the Hirer must accept that if anything happens to the car, we won’t be in a position to provide an exact replacement car. If there is time and you are not too far from Love Classics and we have another car available, then we will offer to deliver a replacement vehicle in the event of breakdown. However if Love Classics are unable to deliver a replacement classic car on the day, we will offer either the use of the car on a future date, or a full refund.
We also have special RAC breakdown cover with all our vehicles included in the price. If the RAC are unable to fix the vehicle and it needs to be recovered, if required, they are able to supply you with a rental car from a local company or arrange a taxi for you to get to your destination (either for no extra cost.)
LIABILITY Love Classics' maximum liability is limited to a refund of the hire charge. No consequential loss liability will be covered.
