We've said it before; There’s something unmistakably striking about the pillarless 124 chassis coupe. Despite having been out of production for nearly 30 years, the pillarless design by legendary designer Bruno Sacco still turns heads more heads than the gobs of electric-powered plastic ovals leaving the factory today. The proportions on this manageable, daily-drivable 6-cylinder coupe make it just the right size for everyday enjoyment or occasional off-map outings. The Smoke Silver paint promotes a sharp and sophisticated attitude, and a Palomino cabin is rarely seen. Both prior owners of have kept thorough records, documenting their affinity for this car and keeping it in top condition. This timeless classic is primed to find a new home with a driver who will appreciate it for another 30 years to come and continue the heritage and provenance this coupe carries.
