‘Das beste oder nichts’
The most sporty W124? This Mercedes 300E-24 from the W124-Baureihe was found in Spain with only 131.000 kilometers. A very original and nicely documented W124. The original service book is present, complete with all dealer stamps and original Datacard. This car was sold new through Mercedes Servicio F. Palanco in Granada and delivered to Comercial Perez Cervera S.A from Armilla, Granada. The handover-inspection was performed on the 21st of June 1990. We have recently bought this car from the president of the Spanish classic Mercedes club – A very high-end and well-optioned 300E-24.
The car was ordered in 199 Blauschwarz Metallic over a 265 ‘Champignon’ Beige Leather. The original owner opted for the then-new M104 24V engine: the 300E-24. A beautiful piece of engineering: dual overhead camshafts, 24 valves, variable valve timing and under-piston cooling jets. It runs smooth as silk and makes 220 HP. This car has it’s original matching #’s engine. It’s mated to a 5-speed Dogleg gearbox. Furthermore electric windows in the front, Sunroof-delete, ABS and a working A/C. The A/C system has had a recent service and blows cold with modern R134a gas.
Amazing to see a 1990 W124 in this condition. The body is nice and straight and shows no sign of rust. The quality of these Benzes is just something different and when imported from Southern-Europe the bodies can be excellent. The doors shut and ‘clunk’ like on the 1st day. The quality of the undercarriage is exceptional. All factory metal and coatings, jack-points in original condition.
The interior is clean, original and tight. The materials are of such a high quality: they look fresh 31 years later. Nice clean original carpets, clean headliner. The leather seats hardly show it’s age and they feel and sit tight: as you may expect with this mileage. The steeringwheel has an as-new feel with proper texture. The dashboard is free of cracks and the wood shines like new.
The trunk shows the factory trunk mat in beautiful clean condition. Under the mat is the factory spare wheel with factory Michelin. The jack looks like it was never used and the set of tools is present.
The engine-bay looks excellent. the M104 engine runs so smooth – you hardly feel it running. The original decals are present in the engine bay. The car drives exellent and the transmission shifts easily. Because the car was hardly driven the last years – a big service was done in Spain to bring it back to life. New oil, new filters, new brake-fluid, a new Mercedes-battery, new brake rotors in the front. We have installed 4 new Continental tires and has the A/C system converted to R134a: which blows cold.
The car comes with the full set of Manual, Books and ofcourse the servicebook. It shows the dealer stamps of the services performed. It contains the ‘Wagenkarte’ / Buildsheet with all info.
Now ready for the next 31 years. Serviced and ready to be enjoyed!
