Lot 188 - Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet
|Odometer reading||89,593 miles|
|Estimate||£14,000 - £17,000|
The debut vehicle for this line was the 300 CE-24 Cabriolet, built until 1993 until it was succeeded by the E320 Cabriolet which became a classic in its own right. What is more, it had the potential to become a genuine piece of automotive history since its production period was relatively brief and numbers built were relatively low. The design stems from their four-door counterparts with modern features such as the eccentric sweep panoramic windscreen wiper, independent suspension and highly advanced safety systems. These were also disguised roll-over hoops in the event of an accident. If un-extended, they automatically deployed in 0.3 seconds if sensors detected an 'unusual angle of attack'. The convertible roof stowed away under a rear panel leaving nothing above the body to disturb the cabriolet form.
This lovely example is presented in white with a cream leather interior with walnut insert to dash and has a black electrically operated hood. It comes with electric windows, stereo and electric ariel and it also has its book pack and spare wheel. This very retro and desirable cabriolet is offered in good condition and is now a very sought-after model, with most being offered with considerably higher mileage than this one which has only done 89,593 miles from new.
