Part of the first generation of the Benz family to be designated as E-Class, the 124 series coupés were produced with exceptional quality and in low numbers, making them the ideal collectible classics of the future.
Modeled with the flagship SEC in mind, the 300 CE bestowed graciously upon the world at the 1987 Geneva Motor Show.The contemporary modern classic coupé, built at a time when the manufacturer boasted legendary levels of reliability and build quality. It also boasts fascinating provenance, initially being a prize for tennis star Danie Visser, and later being used by golf champion Sir Nick Faldo.
The pillarless coupés were far more exclusive making up only 2% of the 124 model line. This included a blend of ground-breaking technology, a powerful refined 3.0 litre 6 cylinder, high safety and economy; it was beyond its times and has now become a timeless classic.
Delivered new by Lane’s of Melbourne, this stunning example finished in Black Pearl Metallic over Alpaca Grey leather interior is one for both the driver and collector alike. The original paintwork is crisp and vibrant with the interior so perfectly preserved, a true credit to the three previous owners.
Delivered in May 1989, it has a full documented services history all the way up to 90,000 kms, original service books and ownership manuals, tool kit and radio complementing this.
