FOR SALE; MERCEDES E320 SPORTLINE CABRIOLET // AZURITE BLUE METALLIC // 78K MILES // 17 YEAR OWNERSHIP

EQUIPMENT
5-Speed Automatic, Azurite Blue Metallic, Sportline 15″ 8-Hole Alloys, Sports Chassis, Dark Blue Electric Soft Top, Cream Beige/Mushroom Quartz Leather, Heated Front Seats, Air Conditioning, Leather Steering Wheel, Leather Gearshift, Front Centre Armrest, Headlamp Wash/Wipe, Wind Deflector, Blaupunkt CD/Radio, Remote Central Locking, Electric Aerial, Mercedes-Benz Mats, Custom Car Cover

EXTERIOR
Glistening in its factory designated coat of Azurite Blue Metallic, with a matching dark blue Soft top, this exceptional Mercedes E320 cabriolet must be one of the finest and smartest examples on the road. One of the last cars to be produced before the E-Class was dramatically facelifted, this example retains the classic, solid rectangular headlights along with some subtle touches including the large-sweep single windscreen wiper and ‘Sportline’ badges on the front wings.

Benefitting from long term ownership of over 17 years condition of the car is superb; free from any signs of corrosion in the usual areas, such as the front wings, the cars vibrant brilliant blue finish shows with excellent depth and nothing more than a few light stone chips to note.

INTERIOR
Offsetting the deep blue coachwork, the interior of this E320 is upholstered in a beautiful beige leather, lifting the cabin to give a bright and spacious feel. Consistent with the condition of the exterior, the interior of the E320 shows in excellent order, and features the unique ‘Sportline’ trim with a smaller diameter black leather steering wheel and ‘Sportline’ badge on the gear knob. Both the beige leather seats and carpets in the footwells and boot are almost completely unmarked, while the wood inserts in the steering wheel, dash and door trim retain a good sheen.

Amenities come in the form of air conditioning, heated seats, front airbags, rear wind deflector and a premium Blaupunkt CD/Radio system.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The E320 was fitted with a powerful 3.2 litre, straight-6 engine with four valves per cylinder. The engine in this example is perfectly presented, and runs wonderfully well, outperforming many more modern cars on the road today

The transmission is the later 5-Speed automatic system, which provides a better range, improved economy and smoother driving experience that the earlier 4-speed gearbox.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 8-hole Sportline wheels on fitted to the E320 are wider than standard models, measuring 7″ as opposed to 6.5″ to fit wider section tyres and improve handling. Matching Bridgestone tyres adorn each corner and sit with excellent even tread all around.

Brakes have been subject to some maintenance in the last few thousand miles, with the rear brake shoes rebuilt at 72k miles and new front discs and pads fitted at 74k miles.

First registered in 01/01/96 by Monarch Mercedes Tamworth, this E320 Sportline has enjoyed a sheltered life covering on average just 6,500 miles per year and has benefitted from long term ownership with its 3rd custodian, who maintained the car from 2002 til 2019.

Servicing has been regular with mileage throughout the cars life, with services from a combination of Mercedes main dealers and specialists at the following intervals;

09/02/96 – 649 Miles

13/03/97 – 8,930 Miles

10/09/97 – 17,452 Miles
