Lot 302 - 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E
|Odometer reading||80,486 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,200|
With £600 million spent on research and development, it is clear to see why the Mercedes 190E was the instant success story that it was, capturing an unprecedented share of the compact executive saloon market in the late 1980s. Boasting a spectrum of new safety features including ABS and safety-belt pretensioners, front and rear anti-roll bars, five-link suspension and anti-squat and anti-dive geometry, the cars quickly became renowned for comfort and capability.
This example of the incredibly popular 190 is offered in blue coachwork and has covered a mere 80,468 miles which for a 190E is barely run-in! Originally registered on the 3rd September 1990 this example still retaining its book pack, boasts a comprehensive service history all found in the service booklet. The first seven services are with supplying dealer Portfield Mercedes-Benz, then further main dealer and specialist or local garages show a total of 12 stamps, the last in February 2022. A lovely well-kept example this is also offered with original sales brochures, Haynes Manual and an MoT test certificate until March 2023 with no advisories. A great car in good condition and a good history file from an era when Mercedes-Benz’s were built to last.
