In 1984 Mercedes-Benz introduced a revised range of seven medium-sized ‘E-Class’ saloons, all sharing the new W124 body style and with engines ranging from a 2.0-litre four up to a 3.0-litre six. When introduced, this state-of-the art example of automotive technology possessed one of lowest drag coefficients of any passenger vehicle, the 200 model achieving the remarkable figure of 0.28 Cd. Enhanced safety had been another priority, the W124 being designed to withstand an offset impact at 56km/h from front and rear without serious harm to the occupants, while within the passenger cabin there were numerous clever features contrived to minimise injuries in the event of an accident. Needless to say, build quality and reliability were both excellent.
Finished in Silver Metallic with Anthracite leather interior, this fantastic example on offer was built in June 1994. Supplied new in Germany and subsequently delivered to Japan, noteworthy features include an electric sunroof, electrically adjustable heated front seats, automatic climate control, heat-insulating glass all round, alarm/immobiliser, and an electric rear-window roller blind (full original order specification available). With just two previous owners it is said to be in excellent condition and is offered with a UK V5C Registration Certificate, roadworthiness certificate, tax form, owner’s manual, instruction books, service records, and three keys.
