W124 is the Mercedes-Benz internal chassis designation reference for the 1985 to 1995 version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Due to the high cost of German engineering and build quality, the model was designed to last many miles with awards won by high mileage versions. Front suspension is by way of a separate spring and damper whilst rear suspension features the Mercedes-Benz multi-link axle introduced in 1982 on the 190 and now standard on many modern cars. Much of the 124's engineering, along with many of its features, were advanced automotive technology at introduction and incorporated innovations that were adopted throughout the industry.
This rare, Mercedes Benz 300E 3.4 AMG original Special Edition had been imported from Japan to Germany in 2014 and is supplied with the original factory order code, as well as a Japanese service inspection. Offered in silver with black leather and having passed a much respected German TUV inspection, (valid until August 2016) alongside an English MoT test, (valid until September 2015) this 300E, combined with the AMG engine produces 272bhp driven through the automatic gearbox. This is a superb, original AMG W124 model from the pre-merged era with Daimler-Benz and is certainly offering an array of extras from the full AMG performance pack. Fully electric seats, air conditioning and protected paintwork give the chance to own an incredibly rare example of this German flyer, in very good order and offering nothing short of breathtaking AMG performance.
