These 8-cylinder sedans provide power, comfort and legendary reliability while sporting a sacco-designed suit that fits the bill. This example comes finished in an iconic Smoke Silver Metallic and is complete with the original window sticker and fully documented service history. Considering the reliability and build-quality of the W124 platform, this 400E is sure to provide its new owner with many more years of luxury V8 motoring.
