Hey guys, Random question, I saw a comment in the BAT purchase of the beautiful 280SE introduction that mentioned an advertisement where a 'w116 lifted by a crane into mid=air by its door handle!'

Has anyone else seen this ad? This sounds pretty cool to me!


Not heard this one BUT I can recall footage on the tv debuting the Finnie being put thru its paces when it accidently rolled and fell over small cliff.!
The team clambered down to the car and opened the doors!.   this then became a feature of the documentary!
 A serendipitous event you could say!
