Footnotes

  • 'The new Mercedes coupés continue the tradition of putting a smooth and good-looking body on the engine and chassis of the existing saloon. The 230 and 300 CE should be winners.' – Motor.

    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 Bosch fuel-injected, four-cylinder 230CE model, these advances made for a top speed of around 126mph (manual) or 123mph (automatic) and a 17% improvement in fuel consumption.

    Fitted with a full alarm system from new, this automatic transmission 230CE has had only two owners and covered some 145,000 miles. Finished in black with grey check upholstery, 'H102 HFX' is described as in generally good condition and is said to drive well. The car is offered with bills and service history (including the service booklet), 13 expired MoT certificates, current MoT and Swansea V5 registration document. A slight oil leak from the engine is the only fault notified.
