Description

French registration

Second hand
Rare mechanical gearbox
Only 101 000 km from new

W124 succeeds the models W123 in 1985 before being erased by the Class E W210 in 1995. She came in sedan W124, break S124, coupe C124, convertible A124 and limousine V124 with the success which it is known on the segment of the middle-class sedans. If the production is set back with regard to his predecessor, she symbolizes all the quintessence of the tradition Daimler-Benz with a quality of finish over the standards of the time, an unwavering reliability and a comfort as high as the requirements of the clientele of the German manufacturer. From 4 diesel cylinders with 72 CV to the bestial 500 outing of V8 of 326 CV, Mercedes thought of everything for those wishing to drive a Mercedes … at the end 2 724 381 models will be produced!

The model which we propose in the sale is a rare configuration because it is one 300 equipped with the six cylinders 2962 cc engine developing 188 cv coupled with a mechanical gearbox. Ordered new in the concession Mercedes in Coignières (Yvelines), she is equipped with the sunroof, with the ABS and with 4 optional electric windows. But what makes its difference today is very certainly its beautiful state of conservation and its low mileage. Having traveled only 101 000 km, she gives the impression of going out of concession! Second hand since 1992, his owner always took care of maintaining his automobile of which he appreciated his road qualities: reliability, flexibility, silence and comfort are key words aboard this generation of Mercedes-Benz. Coupes and convertibles beginning to interest the collectors, undoubtedly sedans will soon be looked for. In such a state (never repainted), little measured in kilometers and with a small estimate, undoubtedly this youngtimer is an opportunity not to be allowed to pass!
