Accordingly with this source: Link to "www.hampstead.com.au"

The car was a 280 SE (Short Wheel Base).

It was sad to see, such beauty to go over the cliff and end upside down. I think they should have used a Citroen DS instead or maybe a 1970's Volvo Estate...

I think this is one of the few scenes, where a car hits the bottom of a cliff and it don't explode, most of films, where a car goes over a cliff or simply rollover, the car always explodes.

An extra picture:

Actually it is not a 280 or a 350, but a 450 SEL, at least in the scene where Bond hits the car with his gun:

How do You spot the different models from outside if the vehicles are debadged or fake badged? Doesn┤t a 280S look exactly the same as 450SE chassiwise? SEL-models of course are longer than SE.

Yeah one was in Spain, the other in gosh I forget where, somewhere in Greece. Both cars were used by the assassin Locque, though, so either Locque just has a thing for Mercedes or he had his car from Spain brought to Greece.

Used by Locque (Michael Gothard). When it ends up teetering over a cliff, Bond kicks it over, avenging the deaths of all those Locque killed.

To end this debate, the 450SEL badge can be seen in the scene this car first appears as well as the scene later on.

But the car on the main pic and the car, thrown from the cliff, isn't one. For sure a shorter SE, if you note the length of the back door.

Ignoring the badge, are any of these pictures actually an SEL body? Also none have headlamp wipers which was standard on all 450 SE and SEL from the start in May 73 (UK data). I think it is just a 280 S/SE all the way through.

I would say that it's supposed to be the same car. Numberplates are the same in both scenes (Spain and Albania) PO 7224

All those scenes were filmed in Greece anyway.
