A two-door version of the W124 sedan, the Mercedes-Benz C124 Coupe was produced from 1988 until 1996. The 300CE version was offered exclusively in North America until 1992 and featured Mercedes’ new M104 engine beginning in 1990. This 1992 example is finished in Arctic White over a black leather interior and was acquired by the seller out of a major German car collection in March of 2023. It is said to be factory-equipped with a lowered and stiffened sport suspension, a quick ratio steering rack, heated bolstered sport seats, a 390mm steering wheel, and the full burl wood package. Having undergone recent service, this 300CE is now being offered for auction by its seller in New Hampshire while showing just over 117k miles on the odometer.
This C124 is finished in Arctic White with grey lower body cladding, black bumper moldings, and a chrome front grille. Equipment includes a rear fender-mounted antenna, headlamp washers and wipers, heat-insulating glass, a heated rear window, and upgraded 17” AMG monoblock wheels dressed in Kumho tires from 2018. The seller notes the original wheels are also included and the car underwent a recent detail including paint correction, wax, and chip touch-ups. The front headlight lenses were also replaced along with the installation of clear Euro-spec marker lights. Some cosmetic imperfections are noted including a dent on the passenger side door, bubbles and paint chips on the trunk lid, and a ding on the rear center of the roof and driver’s door. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with an accident-free CARFAX report.
The black leather interior features burl wood trim, electrically adjustable and heated seats with driver’s side memory, a 390mm steering wheel, and an electric tilt/slide sunroof. Other accessories include an outside temperature indicator, cruise control, an electrically adjustable steering column, automatic climate control, a folding front armrest, illuminated vanity mirrors, and a sound system with an aftermarket radio. The seller notes the cabin has been thoroughly detailed, the tachometer works intermittently, and the outside temperature gauge is inoperable.
Power comes from a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter M104 inline-six engine rated at 217 HP and 195 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 4-speed automatic transmission. The car also features a lower and stiffer sports suspension and a quick ratio steering rack from the factory. Recent service is said to include a brake fluid flush, new spark plugs, a distributor cap and rotor, new temperature sensors, and a coolant test.
This sale will include a toolkit, a spare tire, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thanks for checking out my auction. This a just a great old Mercedes. One of the best driving cars I have had the opportunity to own. Plenty of power and handles and rides fantastic. With the AMG wheels, it has that cool 90s vibe!”
