    • Model250 CE (W114)
    • FE Cat descThere is purity to the 250 CE that, if you know your beans, can only have come from the pencil of Paul Bracq. He was brought in to refresh the line-up of Mercedes-Benz and he did that rather well. A subtle blend of modernisation and, simply, a good eye, heralded the 250 CE with its lowered roofline and lowered seats to maintain headroom. The windows wound down completely out of sight and the 2.5 litre, fuel injected, engine propelled this model up to a perfectly respectable 115mph. First registered on November 16th, 1971, with fewer than 50 remaining registered on British roads, this uncomplicated Stuttgart coupé comes with the classic Mercedes-Benz colour combination of brown over cream. The interior presents in tan MB-Tex and tidy throughout. Some remedial welding took place in June 2017 and latterly, Broadley & Holmes, independent Mercedes-Benz specialists, undertook a gearbox oil service as well as the installation of new headlights, gearbox mounts and engine mounts just last year. The previous month, the same specialists replaced brake hoses and pads, oil, fuel and air filters, sparkplugs, fan belt, power steering belt and radiator hoses in addition to a new steering wheel, complete dashboard, period radio and glovebox. JDO Instruments refurbished the dials ensuring everything works as it should. The car itself was re-painted in 2018 and it will be presented at sale with an MoT test certificate expiring in June 2020, a full service by H&M in Ashford, specialists in German car mechanics as well as previous documentation and paperwork.

    • Model230 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat descLaunched at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 1963, the 230 SL was a very different car to its predecessors. Intended as the replacement for the 190 SL, the 230 SL abandoned the four-cylinder engine in favour of a 2.3 litre fuel-injected six cylinder engine, producing 150bhp. The new engine was derived from that of the great 220 SE. The Paul Bracq penned body was an all new, stylish design which became an instant classic. Beneath the skin, the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring independent suspension, disc brakes on the front and rear drums. Top speed was in excess of 120mph. Soon after the 230 SL was announced, Eugen Bohringer drove one to victory in the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally, and although competition outings are rare, this was the sort of debut one would expect from the Stuttgart factory. These SL models were amongst the most-loved sports-tourers of their day and continue to be highly sought after by collectors. This lefthand drive Mercedes-Benz is thought to be a European specification example which found its way to Guernsey. The history folder contains invoices issued by MB Jacksons in St. Peters Port from 1972 through to 1985. At 66,680 miles the engine was fully rebuilt by MB Jacksons; this included a rebore, new pistons, new cylinder head and crankshaft bearings. The car then found its way to the US where it appeared to live until 2001. It was then stored for a lengthy period and eventually the current vendor purchased the 230 SL in 2010. A fastidious and knowledgeable car enthusiast, he has invested significant sums to ensure this example presents in very good order. The work commissioned by him included a new fuel tank, new injectors and a reconditioned delivery pump. In addition to this, the manual gearbox was overhauled, the brake system was also overhauled as was the suspension. The result of this is a 230 SL Pagoda that is a very well sorted example. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate together with an interesting history folder, this Mercedes-Benz is finished in metallic burgundy with grey leather trim and is supplied with a hardtop.

    • Model230 TE Service Car
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes W123 is a range of executive cars produced between January 1976 and January 1986. This new model was larger in wheelbase and exterior dimensions than its predecessor and enjoyed a greater sales rate than the car it replaced, selling 2.7 million cars worldwide. This 230 TE was first registered in 1985 at the UK head office of Mercedes-Benz in Milton Keynes. It is one of only four cars to have been used as an official Mercedes-Benz Service Car. It still carries the blue and white paint scheme and decals of the service vehicles. As part of its service livery it is fitted with a very rare, boot mounted tool box and roof rack. This car is supplied to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until May 2020. The rareness of this car has recently been rewarded with a space on display at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey. KNZ 1037 is both a rare but usable modern classic ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.

    • Model300SE Coupé
    • FE Cat descThe values of these wonderful cars are now following the same upward climb as the Pagodas; and in this condition represent an extremely sound investment as well as being a real delight to own and drive. In March 1962, Mercedes-Benz released the 300SE Coupé. Due to marketing reasons this car, like its sedan stable mate, was kept apart from the W111 220SE that was launched in 1960 and had its own chassis number W112, which envisioned it as a successor to the W187 300S two-door series, rather than the Ponton range. The car was featured with a chrome strip, air suspension and the Daimler-Benz top of the range 2996cc, M189 engine and, as such, this vehicle remained deliberately split from the rest of the W111 family to emphasise the differences in the much higher level of specification. Originally registered on 19th September 1967, this delightful 300SE has been the subject of a ground up restoration circa five years ago resulting in a near perfect example of a W112 coupé. A £12,000 rebuild of the engine together with the replacement of all the fuel and brake lines, using only Mercedes-Benz parts, give this car a driving performance that almost takes it back to the day it left the factory. Contained within the history file are over 40 pages of invoices detailing the parts and work that was carried out during the restoration. The bodywork, the original factory colour, is simply stunning and the chromework is in pristine condition. The original leather is also in excellent order and extremely supple. The Wilton carpets are as new and the woodwork and headlining are in excellent order. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate; a very well presented example of this extremely stylish motorcar.

    • Model250 SE
    • FE Cat descThis model was first shown at Frankfurt in 1965 and this S-Class Mercedes-Benz range was outwardly distinguishable from preceding models by a sleeker bodyshell with lower roof and waistlines and an increased glass area creating a very attractive Coupé style. All models featured similar all-independent suspension as well as four-wheel disc brakes and power-assisted steering. However, although the saloon used this ‘New Generation’ bodyshell, the Coupé and Cabriolet kept the timelessly elegant coachwork that had debuted back in 1960. The 250 SE used a fuel-injected version of Mercedes-Benz’s new, overhead-camshaft, 2,496cc engine which developed 150bhp. There was a choice of either four-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while the rear suspension featured Mercedes-Benz’s hydro-pneumatic compensating spring. Today all examples of these classic Coupés and Cabriolets are highly sought after.. This nice original example, once owned by the well-known journalist and television broadcaster Sir David Frost, is presented in gold with a black interior and has been maintained over the last six years by Mercedes-Benz specialist Colin Ferns Ltd near Richmond, Surrey. This elegant and sought after model is powered by the smooth 2.5 litre engine mated to an automatic gearbox, providing effortless touring capabilities which these Mercedes-Benz were famed for. Accompanying the car is a current V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate which is valid until March 2020. The boot space has more than adequate luggage room for modern travel and in this wonderful original condition, one can certainly use it everyday as indeed it was intended when first manufactured. Please note that the private registration number is being retained and a new age related one is in the process of being obtained from the DVLA.

    • ModelSL 500 Roadster
    • FE Cat descFollowing the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage designers had with the R129 was technology. By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the SL 500 featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The new SL also boasted a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance. Originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz in Woking on 18th April 1996, this SL 500 is in good order throughout and is described by the vendor as driving with no known faults. With only one previous owner, a host of invoices and the original service book, this has clearly been a well looked after example. These are well equipped vehicles with electric memory seats, heated seats, air conditioning, power roof and smoothness from the 4973cc V12 engine that has to be experienced to be appreciated. Offered for sale with a V5C registration document together with a full years MoT test certificate, this SL 500 offers exceptional value.

    • Model190E 2.5 16V Cosworth
    • FE Cat descIn 1983, Mercedes-Benz introduced the Cosworth 2.3 16V into their range and the new 16 valve cars were substantially different from the other 190 models. The body kit reduced the drag coefficient and the steering wheel was smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged to 70 litres. The Getrag five-speed, manual gearbox was unique to the 16 valve and featured a 'dog-leg' first gear. An enlarged 2.5 litre engine replaced the 2.3 in 1988 and offered double-row timing chains to fix the unreliable single chains on the early 2.3s. The power output was up by 17bhp with a slight increase in torque. It is debated whether the 2.5 engine was developed and built by Mercedes-Benz or by Cosworth! Interestingly, they were not keen to broadcast the fact that their most sporting saloon car had an engine developed by a British company. The suspension on the 16 valve models is very different from the standard 190 and as well as being lower and stiffer, it has larger anti-roll bars, harder bushes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension on the rear allowing the rear ride-height to remain constant even when the car is fully loaded. This lovely example is presented in Smoke Silver with black half Houndstooth cloth interior. It comes with electric windows, electric seats, cruise control and air conditioning. This desirable Mercedes-Benz has been in storage for about nine years and was recommissioned in 2018 by the present owner who installed new injectors, rotor arm and distributor. These models were great to drive quickly, providing lively performance with subtle brutish looks and the addition of that usual German quality of engineering.

    • ModelCLK55 AMG Avantgarde
    • FE Cat descIn keeping with many of the other Mercedes-Benz model series, the new CLK-Class in 2002 was able to bear the three letter mark of sporting prowess AMG. The package promised superlative power delivery and outstanding handling as well as a list of equipment that positively exuded exclusivity. Topping the new CLK range was a V8 model that delivered performance on a par with a typical sports car; the CLK55 AMG produced an impressive 362bhp which could propel this stylish sports cabriolet to 60mph in just 5.2 seconds. Further features that made the flagship CLK- Class sports model really stand out included a special AMG body styling for the front apron, rear apron and side skirts not to mention the 18" AMG alloy wheels and the AMG exhaust system with twin tail pipes. The CLK55 AMG was a rare and high-performance car powered by a hand assembled, 5.4 litre, V8 engine inscribed by the individual engineer who built the unit. Production was in Bremen, Germany. There were only a few hundred cars built each year from 2002 to 2006 and most examples were exported to the USA with only a handful ended up on these shores. We are delighted to offer one of these rare beasts, in fact this is a 2005 facelifted 209 Series model with only three owners and has covered just 45,000 miles. The car is presented in classic brilliant silver with Anthracite leather interior and electric black softtop which can be operated via the key fob or at speeds up to 5mph in just 20 seconds. This example is in outstanding original condition and it also benefits from being a Sports Edition based on the Avantgarde specification with Bi-Xenon headlights, restyled front bumper, a spoiler on the boot, cross drilled brakes and five spoke 17" wheels. The AMG sports package also included a 200mph speedo! This fabulous example is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2020 and a full Mercedes-Benz service history with its fully stamped and original books including a recent service in 2019. This car wants for nothing with every gadget working exactly as it should - all ready for its new owner to use and enjoy.

    • Model300 SEL (3.5 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes-Benz W108 and W109 were luxury cars produced from 1965 through to 1973 in North America only. The line was an update of the predecessor W111 and W112 fintail saloon. The 300 SEL made grand headlines with the 'Q car', the 6.3 litre range was the top example and, behind it in the model line-up with the luxuries and a less heavy yet still very powerful 3.5 litre engine, was the SEL which was, at the time, priced ahead of the competing Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. Offered with air suspension, all electric windows and providing Mercedes-Benz legendary reliability, these cars were sought after by Europe's elite and swiftly became a favourite in the United States. Although many critics described the car as a 'fintail without the fintails', the vehicle was an amazing success. Mostly, due its simple and understated contours, it is not remembered for its looks though some argue that it was thanks to the design that the car has such a timeless charm but instead it was very well known for its reliability and durability, proof again of excellent German engineering. This lovely example is presented in navy blue with complementary blue leather interior. Its smooth and rare 3.5 litre, V8 is mated to an automatic gearbox and with air suspension, this model is one of the most desirable for the discerning collector. These luxury saloons were the choice of Embassies and Royalty around the world, they were a delight to drive, performing well on those long journeys which ate up the miles effortlessly and in comfort. This particular car has covered a mere 49,000km and we are informed has been serviced and setup correctly by a renowned Mercedes-Benz specialist thus performs beautifully.

    • Model380 SL Roadster
    • FE Cat descIn the motoring world the name Mercedes-Benz SL is synonymous with elegance, style and high quality engineering. The name has been in use since 1954 and was first used on the famous 300 SL of that year. The model has enjoyed numerous engine configurations and spans five design generations. R107 is the manufacturers codename for the SL range that was produced between 1971 and 1989 and during its considerable reign, it was powered by eight different engines. This 380 SL Roadster is presented in the classic colour combination of dark brown with a contrasting cream interior and is in good condition throughout. The 380 has perhaps the best balance of the model line-up featuring the desirable V8 engine. This 380 SL has been in the current owners tenure for eight years and is described as being tremendous fun to drive. The history file for this modern classic contains various bills and receipts, a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until December 2019.

    • Model280 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes-Benz W113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Head of Styling Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, who created its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop, which inspired the 'Pagoda' nickname. The model was manufactured from 1963 through to 1971 and boasted an in-line straight six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The larger capacity 2.8 litre was introduced in 1967 and remained largely unchanged until 1971 and represents the most desirable of all the SL range, producing, as it does, more power with an improved five main bearing crankshaft, combined with eminently capable handling and disc brakes all round, making a wonderful driver’s car. This stunning UK supplied righthand drive Mercedes-Benz was first registered on 23rd January 1969. It benefits from having significant investment over recent years; the interior has been trimmed by D.Classics at a cost of £10,000 and the engine rebuilt by the well known and respected Pagoda aficionado Roger Edwards. The blue coachwork has been finished to an exceptionally high standard and the chromework is unblemished; this is a 280 SL Pagoda of the highest quality. The driveability of this car is enhanced by an automatic transmission. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a significant history folder this Mercedes-Benz is owned by a particularly knowledgeable and fastidious vendor who is only selling her due to lack of suitable storage space. Viewing this car in person is highly recommended to fully appreciate the quality.

    • ModelMcLaren SLR Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe SLR McLaren, introduced in November 2003, was Mercedes-Benz's foray into the world of the supercar, alongside such cars as the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari Enzo. It was developed in collaboration with the McLaren Technology Centre which, at the time, was partially owned by Mercedes-Benz. For 2007, Mercedes-Benz added even more drama into the SLR by introducing the SLR McLaren Roadster. Whilst the roof was removed, the ‘swing-wing’ doors remained, hinged to the A-pillars rather than the roof itself. Not wishing to lose any excitement over the original SLR, engineers spent lots of time focusing on the car’s structural rigidity, and Mercedes claim that the roadster is as rigid as the coupé. With a top speed of over 185mph, at the time, this was one of the fastest and most exciting convertibles money could buy. Its AMG Speedshift R transmission provides three manual modes to suit the owner's style of driving. Other remarkable technical features include the Sensotronic 'brake by wire' system; carbon-ceramic disc brakes which can bring the SLR to a sharp halt from 120mph to stationary in less than 240 feet. Originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey on 22nd January 2008, this stunning SLR has only covered 3,129 miles from new. The condition of the car is certainly commensurate with such a low mileage; the Crystal Digenit Blue paintwork is unmarked as is the tan and anthracite leather interior and the 19” nine hole design turbine wheels are spotless - in summary this car presents as new despite being 11 years old. The cockpit area of an SLR is a thing of beauty and to drive such a car is a memorable experience. This one is no different; the engine fired up immediately upon request as one would expect of such a car, and drives with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate together with the original handbooks; whether you are driving to your local golf club or to the Côte d'Azur, there can be few more enjoyable ways to travel than a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

    • ModelSL55 AMG
    • FE Cat descThe fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two-door convertible sports cars was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof, a first for the SL class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. The flagship models were built by AMG in the form of the SL55 and SL65, both highly tuned versions of the SL500 and SL600 respectively. The SL55 was powered by a mighty supercharged version of the 5.5 litre, V8 which produced 493bhp and achieved 0-62 in 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph (governed). In theory, the SL55 could reach 190mph if the car was derestricted but, for many, the acceleration and top speed is impressive enough in its standard form! In stunning order and with just three previous keepers, two of which were husband and wife, this Mercedes-Benz is offered in silver with a charcoal interior. A fully specified car which boasts satellite navigation, heated and cooled seats, wind deflector, tracker, Parktronic, Linguatronic mobile phone integration, panoramic roof, tv tuner and keyless start. Always garaged, this example has been part of a AMG private collection in Cheshire, it is offered with a full Mercedes-Benz service history with six stamps at 17,000, 22,000, 24,000, 34,000, 43,000, 48,000 and in March 2019 had a Mercedes-Benz health check and new battery. These stylish sportscars are magnificent to drive and are hugely popular due to their ability to sit in traffic or travel at exceptional speed (where permitted) in comfort. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until February 2020, this car is a great way to enjoy motoring.

    • Model250 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat desc‘Every driver who has more than a purely utilitarian interest in automobiles should drive a Mercedes-Benz 250SL at least once in his life. The car is an almost perfect yardstick against which to measure any other car. There are cars with better acceleration, cars with better brakes and cars with better roadholding. But there is no car we can think of that has such a remarkable good balance of performance, safety and comfort, and has them in such an absolutely civilised structure.’ – Car & Driver. First produced late in 1966, the 250 SL used the same bodyshell as the 230 SL that had founded this spectacularly successful sports car dynasty and which it replaced. Minor improvements were made to the interior but the major differences were the new 2.5-litre six-cylinder engine, as fitted to the 250SE, and disc brakes instead of drums at the rear, which made it much safer. The new car’s top speed of around 120mph remained the same but the larger engine significantly improved flexibility and responsiveness. The 250 SL was built for just one full production year making it the rarest model of the ‘Pagoda’ range. This example is presented in black with matching black leather interior, black hood and a manual gearbox. Also included is the factory hardtop which was originally from New York. We understand the engine does run but this is a restoration project and hence the extremely competitive guide price. These are sought after models and totally restored examples are fetching six figure sums in some instances.

    • Model250 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat descMercedes-Benz has been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954 when the landmark 300 SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955, completing the first generation of cars. Their successor was the W113 series SL which proved to be more comfortable than the former and faster than the latter. The 250 SL is the rarest of all the SL's as they were only made for one year, of these and most were fitted with automatic gearboxes. This example is presented in dark red with beige leather interior and has a black hood. The factory hardtop is included which is also in dark red, the engine is not the original but is a larger capacity from a 280 SE model. This is mated to an automatic gearbox and some would even say that this engine may be preferred as it would provide better performance potentially. It was imported five years ago from an American dealer and comes with its original US Title document. We are informed by the seller that the engine does start and run but it is being sold as a restoration project! These are highly desirable models and restored examples are achieving six figure sums in some instances.

    • ModelSL 500
    • FE Cat descFollowing the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage that the designers had with the R129, was technology! By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the SL 500 featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The new SL also had a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance. This lovely example is presented in Brilliant Silver metallic with Mushroom leather interior. It has air conditioning, electric seats which are also heated and electric windows. Its dark blue hood is electrically operated and the car also comes with its factory hardtop. The present owner purchased this Mercedes-Benz from a dealer in 2009 and there was only one previous owner before him. The maintenance booklet shows that a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) was carried out by Mercedes-Benz Diplomatic and Tourist Sales in Piccadilly and with Mercedes-Benz UK dealer stamps. Despite being righthand drive, the car had a kilometre speedometer. The dealer changed this for the present owner upon purchase and he has retained the old unit and the Mercedes-Benz dealer’s invoice showing a final reading of 38,621km, which converts to 23,998 miles! As of August 2019, the present owner has covered a further 6,061 miles which is the speedometer reading, therefore giving a total mileage of 30,059 from new. The present owner has had annual services carried out by specialists and whilst the car is without a catalytic converter, all MoT test certificates should be done non CAT. A hardtop stand which is not Mercedes-Benz is included in the sale and the car has been garaged during this ownership.

    • Model300 SL Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe SL model has been part of the Mercedes-Benz line-up since 1954. The first generation of cars was completed in 1955 with the 190. The second generation began with the 230 in 1963 and was distinguished by its distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname ‘Pagoda top’. The factory codename for the SL launched in 1971 was R107. This model enjoyed an impressive build run until 1989, the second longest in the German manufacturers history. Over its eighteen year reign, the R107 range was powered by no less than eight different engines, two sizes of straight-six unit and six versions of V8’s. This lovely 300 SL example is presented in the wonderful colour combination of red with a black cloth interior and a black hood. Accompanying the car is the original factory hardtop and stand which is also in good condition. This car comes with electric windows, a new stainless steel exhaust, an MoT test certificate which expires in June 2020 and is ready to be enjoyed.

    • Model420 SEC
    • FE Cat descThe W126 was a series of flagship vehicles for Mercedes-Benz. Debuted in September 1979 as the successor to the earlier W116 range, the W126 was the second generation to officially bear the S-Class name referring to Sonderklasse or ‘special class’. The W126 was initially offered as straight-6, V8 and turbo diesel engine saloon cars. In September 1981, a two-door Coupé version of the W126 was introduced. Compared to its predecessor, the W126 was more aerodynamic, fuel efficient, capacious and powerful. The W126 S-Class sported a new Mercedes-Benz design style which was subsequently used on other vehicles in the company's line-up. The W126 line also introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first airbag supplemental restraint systems, seatbelt pre-tensioners and traction control system. Originally registered on 7th February 1990, this handsome Mercedes-Benz has been restored and as such presents in excellent order throughout. The bare metal respray included the fitting of new wings and the necessary fabrication work. The Nautic Blue coachwork is virtually unmarked and the Mushroom interior defies its 29 years of age. Mechanically this 420 SEC has been very well cared for with the engine being fully rebuilt. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate, this pillarless coupé is an iconic vehicle of the period and is becoming recognised as one of Mercedes-Benz’s finest designs. With values of SEC’s increasing significantly of late, this example is certainly one of the best we have seen and taking into account the estimate, is sure to be in demand.

    • ModelSL 320 Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe in-house model name at Mercedes-Benz for the SL launched in 1989 was the R129 and were produced until 2002.

    • Model380 SL
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in early 1971, this impressive two-seater sports car replaced the 280 SL. The body and chassis of the third generation SL was considerably heavier and longer than its predecessor but it still showed a resemblance. The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generations of SLs, the vehicle came as an open roadster with a removable hardtop roof. The R107 body shape went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz, remaining in production until 1989 with some 13 variants during the production run. This pleasant example of Mercedes-Benz's 'little black dress' is presented in metallic blue with matching blue interior. Purchased by a company chairman as his weekend conveyance, 361 TTU is described as being huge fun. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate, the sale of this Autobahn cruiser includes the cherished registration number and the all important hardtop. This V8 engined Mercedes promises to give miles and miles of enjoyment to its next owner.

    • Model190E (2.6 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe 190E is one of those enduring classics. Unfussy to look at, superb to drive, well built, reliable and classless. We all know that Mercedes-Benz spent half a billion pounds developing this model, excessive at first sight until you realise that this investment ushered in a new dawn of motorcars for the Stuttgart manufacturer that carried them through to the next decade. With many trim levels and mechanical options, a wide variety of discerning customers was catered for but based on this pure-bred mechanical platform. Supplied with the original registration from the first dealer, incredibly, this straight forward example has had just one owner from new and, with 96,000 miles recorded, it is a testament to its enduring popularity and reliability. This later 190 came equipped with an in-line, six cylinder engine with capacity increased to 2.6 litre and 160bhp on tap. Additionally, it benefits from a recent extensive service to include air filters, engine, gearbox and differential oil as well as refurbished 15 hole alloy wheels. Complete with its original hand book pack, this modern classic is offered without reserve.
