Lot 231 - 1991 Mercedes-Benz 190E Saloon
|Odometer reading||138,230 miles|
|Result||Sold - £1,456|
Mercedes-Benz spent over half a billion pounds researching and developing the 190 E model (W201) and subsequently reported it to be 'massively over-engineered'. Features included patented rear five-link suspension subsequently used in the C and E-Class ranges, front and rear anti-roll bars, anti-dive and anti-squat geometry, ABS Brakes and seatbelt pre-tensioners plus the 190E had a turning circle virtually unbeatable within its class. Introduced in 1982, the last cars were produced in 1993. Today this model is frequently hallowed as being the last of the bullet proof build Mercedes-Benz.
This 190E has been a London car from new and the bodywork is free of any visible signs of rust usually found in the front wings, door seams and wheel arches. The dashboard shows no cracks and the interior in general is both comfortable and smart. The mileage of 138,230 is supported by a substantial history including 14 Mercedes-Benz main dealer service stamps, two non-dealer stamps and many receipts from 'MercServices' London, SW17 and then 'Steve Redfearn' Mercedes-Benz Specialist workshop London including a bill of £1,113 for fuel filter, divider, plugs and tuning etc. some 4,000 miles ago. The service file also contains owner's booklets, original brochure, some old MOT's and other documents; all testimony to the car's good care across the years. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full year's MoT test certificate, this is a collectable example with good history and an attractive variety of factory options.
