- Only 3 owners from new
- 15 years spent with last owner
- MOT until April 2023
Renowned for its comfortable ride, enviable safety features and exceptional build quality, the Mercedes-Benz C200 is certainly worthy of being called a modern classic. If you are looking for a car that still has the old-school Mercedes thunk when you close the doors, then look no further.
This C Class has had just three owners, has covered relatively few miles and its condition speaks for itself. It’s clearly been cherished and still looks very smart today.
With continued maintenance, it should be in service for many years to come.
The History and Paperwork
- MOT to 6th April 2023
- Registered new 23 September 1999
- Specification includes air conditioning, power steering, ABS brakes, electric front windows, rear head restraints
- Main dealer stamps up to 2005, then independents to 2007
- Purchased by last owner in 2007
- Original book pack
- V5 present
- Original service book
- Recently serviced with a change of oil with the last 200 miles
Service intervals at following mileages:
- Grey cloth
- Walnut trim
- Original stereo
If you’re going to opt for a light grey cloth interior then you have to be vigilant about keeping it clean, so the condition of the cabin of this car speaks volumes about its three owners.
The seats are almost unmarked, the carpets and walnut dashboard likewise. The original CD stereo is still in place and there’s hardly any wear to show for the car’s age and miles.
The boot is similarly clean and tidy, the toolkit is present and the spare wheel doesn’t look ever to have been used.
- Steel Grey Metallic
- Smart wheels and tyres
- Very few blemishes overall
Painted in Steel Grey Metallic, this C Class has a subtle and understated appearance. The bodywork all appears in good order and free from corrosion.
With the exception of a few stone chips and minor blemishes here and there, the paintwork presents very well indeed.
The steel wheels wear wheel trims which appear to have steered clear of kerbstones and the tyres all have good tread and reassuringly chunky sidewalls for those looking for a comfy ride.
The chromed grille and three-pointed star are in good condition and complete what is overall, a very smart Mercedes-Benz.
- 1998cc four cylinder petrol engine
- Five speed automatic gearbox
- Drives really well
Under the bonnet it is very clean and tidy which is testament to the judicious maintenance schedule adhered to by its former owners.
The vendor informs us that this C200 drives exceptionally well and is really comfortable on long trips. At launch, the C Class was highly regarded for its smooth and quiet drive and the vendor reports no issues with this example at all.
Having covered a mere 70,400 miles and having had just three owners, this Mercedes-Benz C200 is a great value modern classic that should provide many more years of faithful service.
