Mercedes 300CE

car description

£6950 The 300 CE coupe was based on the new W124 E-Class released here in 1986, albeit on an 85 mm shorter wheelbase than its saloon sibling. The coupe’s styling was elegant and remains so today when other cars of the era have dated quickly. Almost 30 years after it was first launched the 300 CE is a good looking car oozing the solid prestige that came with the Mercedes-Benz badge in those days. Underneath it rode on the same competent W124 platform. A combination of coil springs and telescopic shocks at the front worked in tandem with a five-link independent rear suspension to give the 300 CE a solid foundation for responsive handling. The handling was typical of ’Benz, starting out with under steer at low speeds before becoming more balanced as the speed climbs. The result was a supreme feeling of confidence in the road holding. Powerful disc brakes slowed the heavy coupe with ease, and standard ABS added to the coupe’s braking prowess. Under the imposing bonnet lay a silky smooth straight six-cylinder engine. With fuel-injection delivering the fuel, the 3.0-litre six had a single overhead camshaft with two valves per cylinder and put out 135 kW at 5700 revs with peak torque of 2
