Footnotes

  • The smallest Mercedes-Benz of the post-war era, the A-Class was intended as an entry-level model, extending the brand's appeal to a new area of the market. Boasting innovative styling, the A-Class debuted in 1997 in W168 form and, unusually for a Mercedes-Benz, featured front-wheel drive. The engine/transmission unit was mounted low down, the idea being that in the event of a frontal impact it would slide back beneath the passenger compartment rather than into it. The A-Class went on to become a deserved success; by the end of 2006, sales had totalled 1.5 million worldwide. The W168 was face-lifted in 2001 and in 2004 was replaced by the comprehensively restyled and redesigned W169. The latter would be the last to embody the original A-Class concept, the 2012 version being an entirely different type of car.

    Purchased new by the Collection and originally registered 'M1 MBA', this A-Class has the ACS clutch-less five-speed transmission. The car has covered 51,196 miles from new and is described as in excellent condition mechanically, with very good body/chassis and good red leather interior. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry invoices, a quantity of expired MoT certificates and Swansea V5.
