First registered in March 1991, this modern example has fast become a classic in its own right and good cars, such as this, are now hard to find. Finished in the classic Smoke Silver with Mushroom plaid interior, this benefits from the ‘Sportline’ chassis option which consisted of lowered and uprated shocks and springs, bigger anti-roll bars and an uprated & more direct steering box. Also included is a sports steering wheel with 15-hole light alloy (fully refurbished) wheels, electric sliding/tilting sunroof and self-levelling suspension.

Serviced by Mercedes-Benz Chichester from new to 83,800 miles and subsequently by further specialist garages, it had a new windscreen fitted in June of last year under the watchful eye of Jamiroquai’s front man and noted classics collector, Jay Kay. It has since been serviced in 2019 by Mercedes-Benz experts, John Hains of Goring-by-Sea totalling over £1,300 and, most recently with Smercs of Portsmouth, leading Mercedes-Benz specialists on the South Coast. With Cosworth models now in excess of £20,000, this now-coveted Sportline example is offered without reserve, with a full 12-month MoT certificate and will be of firm interest to enthusiasts who are now featuring these modern classics in their collections.
