We are pleased to offer this 1995 Mercedes-Benz W124 E420 Special Edition finished in Sapphire Black. Produced from 1985 to 1995, the Mercedes-Benz W124 Sedan is well regarded for its exceptional build quality and robust engines. Commemorating the final model year of the W124, this Special Edition E420 came loaded with premium factory features and has remained under the care of the same family since new. The car has enjoyed a lifetime of proper routine maintenance and features upgraded 18” AMG Monoblock wheels along with an Avantgarde grille. Benefitting from a recent full service, this E420 Special Edition is now being offered for auction by the original owner’s family out of Canada while showing just over 78k kilometers (48k miles) on the odometer.
This W124 comes finished in Sapphire Black with gray lower body cladding and chrome-accented door handles. The front grille has been upgraded to a Mercedes-Benz Avantgarde unit and a set of genuine 18” AMG Monoblock wheels have been mounted and dressed in a set of newer Pirelli P Zero tires. The original 15” wheels are also said to accompany the sale and are currently mounted with a set of Yokohama tires. A few imperfections have been noted throughout the exterior including a small dent on the rear of the driver's side and a few scratches at the bottom of the front bumper. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is trimmed in black leather with burl wood inlays on the center console, dashboard, doors panels, and gear selector. Standard features include climate control, cruise control, heated power front seats, power windows, and central locking. The Special Edition also comes equipped with a trunk-mounted six-disc CD player, high performance 10 speaker sound system, driver’s seat memory, an electrically adjustable steering column, and stainless-steel door entry guards. The cabin is described to have been very well kept with all gauges and accessories working properly including the air conditioning and original radio.
Similar to the engine from the legendary 500E model, the E420 is equipped with a 4.2L M119 V8 rated at up to 282 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 4-speed automatic transmission. According to the seller, all maintenance was carried out through Mercedes-Benz dealerships from new up until 45k kilometers. A service was carried out in October of 2021 in preparation for sale which included a new battery, new spark plugs, a Liqui Moly oil service, and new OEM brake pads and rotors. A very minor oil leak is noted from the oil filter housing gasket.
This sale will include the original manuals, factory 15" wheels, service records, and a clean title. Representing a bygone era of quality and luxury, this one-family-owned E420 Special Edition is just waiting to be cherished by a new caretaker.
