1993 Mercedes 320CE Convertible

Produced between 1992 and 1994, the 320CE was built in limited numbers in the traditional manner of classic Mercedes-Benz coupés and convertibles, being the very best specified and most luxuriously equipped model in the range. Outwardly similar to its smaller-engined siblings, the 320CE was powered by the 3,199cc, Type M104, 24-valve, twin-overhead-camshaft six producing 220bhp, an output good enough for a top speed in excess of 145mph in the case of the manual transmission version, with the automatic not far behind. Variable inlet valve timing made for increased torque and a flatter power curve, enhancing flexibility. A driver's-side airbag and anti-lock brakes and were standard equipment on the 320CE and most cars were delivered with the four-speed automatic transmission like the example offered here.

This particular 320CE convertible was purchased this spring from a friend for £12,000 as a summer project. In actual fact there was very little work required, servicing the air conditioning (cost £488), a full valeting and cleaning the leather upholstery being the limit of what was considered necessary. Said to drive very well and look good, this desirable modern Mercedes-Benz soft-top is offered with current Mot certificate and a V5C registration document. A total of circa 85,000 miles is currently displayed on the odometer.
