MODEL HISTORY & PRODUCTION
Launched some 30 years ago, this contemporary Classic was described as elegant, spacious, refined, and surprisingly entertaining to drive, it’s still regarded as one of the finest four-seater drop-tops there has ever been, and remains hugely sought after.
The W124-series sedan was launched in 1985, followed in 1986 by the wagon, and in 1987 by the coupe. The cabriolet debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991, going into production in early 1992. Mercedes hadn’t built a four-seat cabriolet for 20 years and what a sensation it created.
A facelift in 1993 moved the ‘E’ in front of the engine designation, modernised the styling, and brought new engines including four-cylinder units and a 3.6-litre AMG unit. It stayed in production until 1997, two years after the saloon and wagon had been replaced.
Some 40,295 124-series cabriolets were built. Thanks to unimpeachable build quality and generally diligent owners, survival rates are still quite high. Their relative rarity and high desirability means they’ve never been exactly cheap, but prices are on the right side of affordable all the same. A good one, especially with the rare Sportsline package, is as cast iron an investment as you’ll find.
First delivered by Normand (Mayfair) Ltd Park Lane to a London Prince on 4 August 1993 in the desirable Midnight Blue with enviable options.
