Finished in Tourmaline Green metallic with Mushroom leather, this desirable 124 cabriolet has had one owner for the last 14 years, covered only 88k miles and is complete with a full service history. What’s more, it’s well equipped with leather trim, air conditioning, cruise control and a wind deflector alongside the standard accessories.
Originally supplied new in Sydney, Australia, this Cabriolet has spent most of its life in the dry Australian climate. It was purchased by its last owner in 2004 and when he moved back to London in 2015 he brought the car with him and registered it here.
Along with having covered a relatively low mileage of just 142,628 KM, or 88,625 miles, this is backed up by a full service history from Mercedes main dealers and specialists, comprising of 12 stamps, though it will be serviced again for its next owner. All original books and manuals come with the car along with spare keys.
Thanks to having spent the majority of its life in warmer climates, this W124 is completely rust free. All the usual 124 corrosion weak-points are perfect and original – a real bonus. The exterior is extremely well presented with very good paintwork and the original eight-hole alloy wheels retain their diamond cut finish. Similarly, the interior is very tidy and clean as the photos show. The hood operates correctly along with all the other electrical accessories.
On the road this E220 is the perfect combination of refinement, sufficient performance and manageable economy, making it an elegant design classic that would be perfect for everyday use. Four-seat, open-top motoring is what the 124 cabriolet was designed for, and with a good selection of optional extras, this example is perfect for the coming summer months.
