The Mercedes 280S 3.5L W111 is a collector’s favorite and is considered almost a work of art in and of itself. The latest 3D printed Mercedes 280S model shared by Sebastiaan Pot, whose amazing work we’ve covered on this website before, certainly does it justice.

For this job, Pot only did the actual 3D printing and the final result certainly does justice to the original.

By the way, one of these images IS the original car. Can you guess which one?

According to Wikipedia, The Mercedes-Benz W116 is a series of flagship luxury sedans produced from September 1972 until 1980. The W116 automobiles were the first Mercedes-Benz models to be officially called S-Class, although earlier sedan models had already unofficially been designated with the letter ‘S’ – for Sonderklasse or “special class.”
