This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300CE 3.4 AMG BRABUS Widebody was originally ordered for the German market and later spent more than a decade in the Japanese market before being imported to the United Kingdom in 2015. Finished in Black Pearl Metallic (199) over Black Leather (261), power is provided by an AMG-modified 3.4-liter inline-six engine paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission with an Automatic Limited Slip Differential. Factory options for this example include an electric sliding sunroof, air conditioning, a rear roller blind, sports chassis, and the (957) AMG engineering package. This example has been further modified with a BRABUS widebody kit, exhaust, wheels, and Bilstein suspension. It’s believed this is 1 of 25 AMG 3.4L 300CE’s and the only one to wear a BRABUS widebody kit. Notable maintenance performed under the current owner’s care since 2015 includes the replacement of the head gasket, camshaft gaskets, timing cover seal, engine mount, bell housing cover and water pump in 2016. Additionally, new front and rear Bilstein shocks were installed in 2020. This rare C124 currently shows 101,634 km (~62k miles) on the odometer and is offered in Brighton, U.K. with recent service records, import paperwork, manufacturer's literature, two original keys, and a clean U.K. title.
Finished in Black Pearl Metallic (199), this coupe features a BRABUS widebody kit, wide front and rear bumpers, and a monochromatic paint scheme. Additional features include a power sliding sunroof with tilt function, OEM European headlights, lower fog lights, and a pillarless window design. The seller notes no prior bodywork, damage, or accidents and the car to be rust-free. The hood ornament has been replaced with a flat badge, the decklid wears a BRABUS badge, and the fenders display BRABUS badging.
This example wears staggered BRABUS Monoblock III 18” 3-piece wheels finished in black with polished lips. Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires are mounted showing 235/40 up front and 275/35 in the rear. The wheels show well with no damage noted and wear BRABUS center caps. New Bilstein shocks were installed in 2020.
The cabin is trimmed in Black Leather (261) across the seats, door cards, armrest, and center console. Additionally, black leather trims the aftermarket steering wheel. 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, rear roller blind, and the automatic climate control. The center console is trimmed in Burred wood and shows light fading. The factory head unit has been replaced with an Alpine touchscreen and the seats show some light creasing along with light wear on the driver’s seat outside bolster.
The analog odometer shows 101,634 km (~62k miles). Instrumentation includes a 260-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 3.4-liter M104 inline-six was rated at 268 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque from AMG, and power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed automatic transmission with an automatic LSD (limited-slip differential). Notable maintenance performed under the current owner’s care since 2015 includes the replacement of the head gasket, camshaft gaskets, timing cover seal, engine mount, bell housing cover and water pump in 2016.

Is there a better E-Class than a 1 of 25 3.4L-powered coupe? Arguably, yes when one shows a rare BRABUS widebody kit. This car has gained recent notoriety in Europe as one of the rarest AMG coupes to come out of the 1990’s and has been featured in multiple shows and concours. In 2021 this car was featured at the London Concours and helped set the tone for the Youngtimers Class. This example should be regarded as one of the rarest 124’s we’ve seen and a respectable addition to any collection looking for some pre-merger, period-correct love.
