Footnotes

  • In late 1984 Mercedes-Benz updated its medium-sized passenger car line-up, introducing the new W124 bodyshell, which replaced the nine-year-old W123 style. Improving aerodynamic efficiency as a means of reducing fuel consumption and thus lowering emissions had become a major preoccupation among motor manufacturers, and the W124's sleekly refined shape reflected these concerns. Slightly longer but a whole 2" narrower than their predecessors, the W124s had a significantly reduced frontal area and coefficient of drag, which together with lighter weight made for appreciably better performance. In the case of the top-of-the-range, Bosch fuel-injected, six-cylinder 300E model, these advances made for a top speed of around 144mph (manual) or 140mph (automatic) and a significant improvement in fuel consumption, figures that emphatically eclipsed those of the superseded 280E that it replaced.
    Equipped with sunroof, electric windows, flat-face alloy wheels and optional cruise control, this automatic transmission 300E has had only one owner and covered some 110,000 miles from new. Finished in Smoke Silver with red fabric upholstery, 'J158 EOU' is described as in generally very good/excellent condition and is said to drive very well. The car is offered with current MoT certificate and Swansea V5 registration document.
