Description

The Mercedes is one of those overlooked treasures, superb engineering with a style that makes it stand out from the crowd. See www.vintage-classics.co.uk Being a pillarless coupe it is just like a convertible but with a partial roof. Lower the four windows (electric of course) and because there is no centre pillar it leaves a wide open space on each side of the car. Press another button to slide the sunroof back and enjoy the ‘air in your hair’ experience.

Registration Number: Interior Details: This lovely car receives many admiring looks I have even had a driver of a modern Mercedes nearly fall out of his car trying to get a better look as I drove past. I once heard a very apt description of what it is like to drive one of these vehicles ‘wafting along with an air of affluence’ describes it perfectly. Driving a modern car is a very rushed affair and is all about keeping the revs up and accelerating away as quickly as possible. The Mercedes on the other hand easily keeps up with modern traffic but in a much more relaxed and sedate manner.

Modifications

The Mercedes falls into the new category of ‘modern classic’, strictly speaking and according to the 25 year rule it is a classic. In my opinion this coupe has all the attributes of a modern car and therefore is not a true classic in terms of driving style and equipment but ‘modern classic’ does describe it perfectly. Classic in terms of body style, modern in terms of equipment and driving style.
