All carpeting has been protected with Mercedes-Benz over mats from new. The headlining is tight and spotless.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION:
The legendary four cylinder overhead camshaft Mercedes-Benz engine is renowned for uncompromising refinement and reliability, with this example the embodiment of that reputation! Displacing 1797cc, a top speed of 112mph and 0-62.5mph time of 13.3 seconds is quietly and comfortably achieved. The four speed automatic transmission with Tempomat is effortless and delivers a beautifully smooth and relaxed driving manner.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES:
Factory standard 15” light alloys wheels with the eight-hole design are shod in quality Michelin tyres with ample tread remaining. The highly polished aluminium finish compliments the car wonderfully and only faint localised curbing scratches can be seen upon very close inspection. Dual-circuit power brakes with factory optional anti-lock (ABS) assistance (optional code 470) bring the car up to a straight and steady halt.
Full Mercedes-Benz Main dealer and specialist service history and only 55,788 miles from new with every consecutive MOT certificate make this a very special car indeed! First registered 1st August 1993 by Mercedes-Benz Main Agent Robinsons Autostar of Norwich, the vehicle has returned to them for servicing no less than 15 times, evidenced by a full complement of stamps in the original service booklet, the most recent being in 2008 at 42,903 miles.
