1985-1995 MERCEDES-BENZ 200E/300E (W124) specifications Classic and Performance Car

Replacing the W123 was a case of more of the same for Mercedes-Benz. Although the style was very much rooted in the ‘80s, closely mirroring the 190E, the engines and running gear were carried over from the older car. Considered by many aficionados as the final ‘hewn-from-granite’ Mercedes-Benzes, the W124 is a satisfying ownership proposition. There aren’t many weaknesses – the engines go on forever, and the interior is strong enough to survive a nuclear attack. Rust nibbles away at the edges, and many people are finding profit in breaking rather than repair.
