NO RESERVE - 2006 Mercedes-Benz E350 Estate (W211)

HIGHLIGHTS


  • Original V6 E-Class in very good condition
  • Seven-seat family favourite
  • Full leather
  • Top-spec V6 with genuine low mileage

THE APPEAL


The fourth-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class debuted in 2002 and was true to the model’s roots – a large, sturdy executive saloon with exceptional ride quality and a hewn-from-granite build. 

Whether as a cossetting saloon or an ultra-useful estate, the W211 was one of the best cars of its era and today the nicest survivors are very much sought-after. This is one of them – a nice example in a good high-end specification. 

Seven seaters are often a necessity and rarely a type of vehicle you buy for the love of cars, but here’s a family wagon you can be proud to own and also thoroughly enjoy driving. 

Finished in unusual Tealite Blue, it’s a fine-looking car that’s equally at home ferrying the kids and dogs, or doing tip runs.

SUMMARY


Finding a good W211 Mercedes is getting harder and harder as so many of them were bought by owners who simply piled on the miles, especially the estate models, which were the class-leaders of their day. This one’s is a great survivor -a. genuinely low mileage car with added (and much sought-after) seven-seat desirability. 

As a great retro daily or family-friendly modern classic, there’s a lot to like here. It’s a wonderfully engineered and very well-specified E-Class with the best pick of the V6 engines offered in the model.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

Safe, secure payment process

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.

Anti-sniping

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.
