The elegant sleek lines of this W124 Mercedes Benz pillar-less coupe are utterly breath taking and this range topping E300-24 example is a fantastic testament to this design classic. Finished in original Signal Red (code 568) the paintwork boasts a bright polished shine and uniform finish which still draws admiration today. Small areas of lacquer lift are barely visible as are tiny firm blisters to wing edge. All trim sections, chrome dressings and badges are intact and pristine. Dealer number plates remain fitted and all glass in unmarked. An accentuated exterior with timeless style.
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 automatic seat belt feeders and an asymmetrically positioned glove compartment lock hint towards the ‘over engineering’ of the Mercedes-Benz W124. The anatomically contoured wedge shape seats finished in optional Mushroom leather (code 265) show minimal markings namely to the driver’s bolster and are immensely comfortable. The pristine carpets have been protected from new by Mercedes tailored floor mats and even the original first aid kit is complete and housed in the rear shelf compartment along with the dealer tax disc holder still affixed to the front screen! The burr walnut, standard only in this range topping 300CE-24, is in remarkable order along with all other high quality materials. The boot area houses the original spare wheel, toolkit and jack and displays factory build stickers. An outstanding classic Mercedes-Benz interior, the epitome of the maker’s reputation for engineering prowess.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
A beautifully clean and original engine bay displays all the factory stickers and plates and houses the powerful six-cylinder engine with four-valve technology. The electronically controlled inlet camshaft adjustment contributes towards the high output and excellent torque. A top speed of 145mph and 0-60mph in 7.7 seconds are quoted from the 220bhp engine. Fitted with the optional and desirable 5-speed automatic gearbox making it possible to adopt a dynamic driving style. Wonderful.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Optional eight hole light alloy wheels in fantastic order and free from scuffs are shod in quality matching Michelin Energy 205/60 R15 tyres with excellent tread remaining. The dual-circuit power-assisted braking system with anti-lock offers stopping power to install complete peace of mind.

Full Mercedes-Benz Main Dealer and Mercedes-Benz Specialist service history is evident throughout the entire life of this pampered example. With 25 service stamps and accompanying invoices this enthusiast owned car offers the next owner an insight into the fastidious care bestowed upon it. A collection of MOT certificates, old tax discs and even a new car sales brochure all make fascinating reading. Two sets of keys, the metal key tag and an unopened recovery key all remain attached to a Mercedes leather key fob. A truely remarkable, usable and stylish coupe.
