Mercedes-Benz introduced the 'E-Class' to the market in 1985, with the cabriolet version available from 1991. Much of the 124's engineering, and many of its features, were advanced automotive technology incorporating innovations that have been adopted throughout the industry. It had one of the lowest drag coefficients of any vehicle at the time, due to its aerodynamic body, which included plastic moulding for the undercarriage to streamline airflow beneath the car- reducing fuel consumption and wind noise. It had a single windscreen wiper that had an eccentric mechanism at its base, extending the wiper's reach to the top corners of the windscreen. The coupés and convertibles had optional rear headrests that would fold down remotely to improve rearward visibility when required.
This beautiful E220 Automatic is presented in Brilliant Silver with black leather interior and was supplied by Bradshaw Webb of Chelsea; registered for the first time in May 1996. A high specification example, this car includes heated front seats with 13 stamps in the service book and further invoices enclosed within the history file. The vehicle has certainly been very well looked after by its previous owners, having been last serviced at 94,593 miles. Offered with an MoT test certificate valid until September 2016 with no advisories and everything functioning as it should, this is a very useable modern classic that will bring many miles of enjoyable motoring to the new owner.
