A couple returns to their new Papyrus White Mercedes-Benz 220SE Coupé after enjoying a leisurely lunch of zopf and fondue in an alpine village, 1962. The W111 Series Coupé was introduced to the world at the 1961 Salon de Genève. Styled by Friedrich Geiger and Paul Bracq, it is one of the handsomest post-war Mercedes-Benz designs.
