This 300CE wears authentic 17" AMG Aero 1 wheels which were recently professionally refinished in preparation for the sale. The wheels are wrapped in new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 4 tires measuring 225/45 all around. Recent maintenance included a full set of new Bilstein shocks and H&R lowering springs on all four corners.
The cabin is trimmed in Anthracite Leather (271) across the seats, door cards, armrest, and center console. Additionally, black leather trims the steering wheel and shift knob. The dashboard is free from cracks along with the door cards and rear headrests. The retractable seat belt arms for the front seats are both operational and function as intended. Also controlled from the cabin are the rear headrests, power antenna, four power windows, a Kenwood head unit, and the automatic climate control. The center console is trimmed in Zebrano wood and shows some light fading near the climate control switches. Original black Mercedes-Benz carpet floor mats are included and shown in the gallery.
The analog odometer shows 192k kilometers (~120k miles). Instrumentation includes a 240-kph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and an analog odometer with trip function. Additional gauges include fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure along with an analog clock and digital external temperature gauge.
The 3.0-liter M103 inline-six was rated at 188 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque when new, and power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission with LSD (limited-slip differential). Recent service under current ownership includes a suspension refresh with new Bilstein shocks and H&R lowering springs, new Michelin tires, new spark plugs, injectors, fuel filter and air filter.
The Carfax report first shows history in February 2021 when it was imported into the United States and lists no accidents or damage. This 1989 300CE is now offered with recent service records, manufacturer's literature, two original keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Montana title.
The C124 is a continuation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe and brought with it is the classic 90’s Bruno Sacco styling featuring a true pillarless design with all four windows rolling down. On the outside, this 300CE is a near clone of the legendary AMG Hammer and features an authentic AMG body kit and Aero 1 wheels. The aggressive front and rear bumpers and side skirts, iconic three-piece trunk lid spoiler and AMG monoblock wheels embody what the 80's tuning culture was all about. With pre-merger AMG prices skyrocketing, for many, the thought of owning one is now out of reach. This example offers a perfect opportunity for an AMG enthusiast to own and appreciate the outstanding design which came from AMG and comes with the huge benefit of a 5-speed manual gearbox. To be able to row through gears with the ultimate style, this C124 offers enormous value for anyone looking for a piece of automotive design that can be enjoyed and driven day in and day out.
