During the winter of 1967/1968, Daimler launched its new generation family of vehicles called Stroke Eight for the model year. The headline was the new W114 and W115 family, built on a new chassis but the existing models were given an upgrade with a single engine, the 2,778cc M130. The W108 now included 280S and 280SE with production starting in November 1967. Performance on the cars improved, on the 280S, the two downdraft carburettors produced 170hp at 5200rpm and could push the car to 115mph, whilst 0 to 60mph was completed in 12.5 seconds. The fuel-injected delivered 160hp at 5500rpm and featured a new pump which was not affected by temperature or altitude. Thanks to the air oil filter and better arrangement of cylinders, cooling and hence economy improved. Performance of the 280SE, 280SEL and 300SEL was all but identical, a top speed of 118mph and a 0 to 60mph acceleration in 10.5 seconds for the W108s.
