1992 Mercedes-Benz 300TE


  • Genuine seven-seat 124-Series Mercedes
  • Huge boot
  • First registered in Jersey
  • Terrific condition inside and out


The W124 is widely acknowledged as one of the last “proper” Mercedes-Benzes, built in a tradition of build quality over anything else. 

The Estate versions – officially known as the S124 - are legendary, offering a great combination of practicality and understatement, as well as exceptional comfort.

They’re a very satisfying ownership proposition, being perhaps the most highly regarded variant of the most widely admired car Mercedes-Benz ever made, lauded for its bulletproof build quality and timeless design.

This one is a remarkable car. Unlike many S124s, which by definition live a hard life, it spent the first part of its life in Jersey and has since been kept on the UK mainland as a cherished car, rather than used heavily. It has covered 106,000 careful miles and is presented in gorgeous condition inside and out. 

The best engine, the best specification and seven seats – what more could you want from a family classic?

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
