The sophisticated sleek lines of this W124 Mercedes-Benz cabriolet are breathtakingly elegant and this E320 Sportline example is a fantastic testament to this design classic. Finished in original Brilliant Silver (code 744) the paintwork boasts an impeccable bright polished shine and uniform finish. The factory panels are pin straight and free from damage. The bonnet and front bumper display only a few stone chips and faint markings, and two small scratches to the offside front wing are visible upon inspection. All trims sections, mouldings and Sportline badges are intact. The electro-hydraulic roof operation is seamless and the hood fabric remains pristine. Ever pioneering, Mercedes eliminated the traditional roll over bar in favour of automatic rollover protection which also double as electrically operated rear head restraints. A prime example synonymous with exceptional Mercedes-Benz build quality.
Luxury and opulence in abundance, a cabin space that was, and in many ways still is, hugely ahead of its time. Features such as electrically adjustable head restraint height to compliment the electric front seats as well as the automatic seat belt feeders hint towards the ‘over engineering’ of the Mercedes-Benz W124. The contoured seats trimmed in original Black Leather (code 261) are ergonomically designed for optimum comfort with lateral support and seat-suspension designed to harmonise with the vehicles actual suspension. The upholstery with matching doors cards is in exceptional order and spotlessly clean, and the pristine carpets have been protected from new by Mercedes tailored floor mats, although the rear items are now missing. All technological advancements and functions housed in the highest quality fascia operate seamlessly. An outstanding classic Mercedes-Benz interior, the epitome of Mercedes Benz craftsmanship.
