Previously supplied by ourselves and we’re delighted to see this beautiful 230CE again as it’s one of the nicest out there.
Originally supplied by Bells of Coldstream, this Coupé is finished in the ever so attractive colour scheme of Malachite Green over Kiwi, contrasted by Mushroom leather with walnut wood.
The car has had four owners in total, the first lady until 1998, then the second gentleman until 2014. Interestingly, in 2014, when it passed into the hands of its third owner, the Coupé had covered just 41k miles from new. Between 2014 and 2016 its third keeper increased that to 71k miles, so taken was he with the car. The current owner, a Mercedes collector, has used the car sparingly but regularly, taking the current mileage to 71,896.
This C124 comes with all original books, manuals all of the originally supplied keys – two normal, one valet and one emergency. In addition, it has a full service history, comprising of main dealer and specialists.
As the photos show this example has remained in quite simply exceptional condition. The exterior is unmarked yet wears all original panels and is largely original paint. The interior is quite remarkable, displaying almost no sign of its 24 years at all. No wear, no fading, just incredible original condition.
The unmarked eight-hole alloy wheels wear a matching set of recent Goodyear tyres.
The car is completely as supplied, right down to its Blaupunkt stereo/cassette.
On the road this 230CE is quite simply the best we have driven. It drives absolutely correctly with no signs of age.
All in all, a wonderful 124 Coupé. Perfect for the buyer who is looking for the best.
