There has been a LOT of confusion in other places as to what model this car is. I have a model of the car and it says 240D.

Why aren't there pics of this same Benzino thrown away by a train and landing into a lake? Could somebody add those pics, please?

Bond steals General Orlov's car. The tyres are shredded when he goes over some spikes, so he puts the car on the railway track and goes after the train.

No, it's the same car. And for sure a W108, 250 S or so. Definetely no 230.4, 230.6 (there was no 230.5, Mercedes never had 5-cylinder-engines) or a 240 D, because they are from the W114/115-series.

Let's not guess the engine sizes of Mercs, if there's no badge on the boot lid then leave it blank. Before this it was listed as a 280SE.

Well it is not always guessing if there is no badge, sometimes it can be identified more or less correctly, still better than nothing as model name.
But as Ingo said, several models are possible in this case.

By all the visible details ( front grille, wheelcovers, door mirror, etc. ) it's a 1968+ 280 S or SE.

I love how there's always some chilled out dude sunbathing, fishing, reading a newspaper or otherwise just relaxing before some Bond-related incident turns his world upside down.

The classic example of this usually has said chilled out dude looking at a bottle of something he's been drinking, as if what's just happened is somehow related to the contents of the bottle.
