  • Good original condition
  • Sunroof
  • Recent service

The Appeal

Mercedes built cars to last. Because they last, they provide a level of reassurance for the driver and command a healthy price if they’ve been looked after. Add to that the sleek and timeless design, which is particularly true of the W124 series, and you have a recipe for success. Whether it be a daily driver or something to tuck away for a few years and roll out in the long summer days, they offer something for everyone. 
Here is one such fine example, previously owned by a particularly fussy enthusiast that insisted on Mercedes parts when replacing anything. Although there is very little paperwork with the car, it will be having a full service before sale.

The Summary

This could be a ripe time to grab a bargain before these cars really start to appreciate, just like their cousins, the R107 model proved to do. At inspection, the car drove impeccably, and the gutsy 3.2 engine sounded fantastic providing an altogether super-smooth ride. 

Sure, it would benefit from a thorough clean inside, but once done, this pillarless coupe is sure to put a smile on the face of its next lucky owner.

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.


Car & Classic 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 £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

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.
