Lot 326 - 1982 Mercedes-Benz 230 CE
|Estimate||£10,000 - £14,000|
The W123 Series surpassed the W114 model range as the most successful Mercedes-Benz ever. The coupé featuring a shorter wheelbase than the standard saloon and was introduced in spring 1976. With a 12 month waiting list at launch, Mercedes-Benz enjoyed all the accolades of the world's press who proclaimed its virtues of style, build quality and reliability. Electronic fuel injected engines were introduced in 1980 making the cars faster and more reliable with all cars fitted with power steering from 1982. The build quality at the time set new standards in its class and the W123 compounded the reputation of Mercedes-Benz for engineering advancement and design. The coupés were sleek and elegant with many high profile personalities choosing to own one. In the UK, prices were high but this did not prevent the range, in all forms, from being extremely successful.
Since being added to the present owner’s car collection in 1987, this vehicle has been housed in a purpose-built garage and, although regularly run, has only seen dry roads. It has been lovingly nurtured, is blemish free, in showroom condition and runs exceptionally smoothly, as would be expected of this low-mileage model. It is presented in metallic green with a beige interior and comes with a sunroof and air conditioning. This wonderful example also comes with full and original Mercedes-Benz tool kit, original Mercedes-Benz owner’s manual, maintenance booklet and past MoT test certificates with bills are also available.
