A stylish and luxurious touring coupe with an impressive turn of performance, this late ‘facelift’ example with neatened bumper and grille design surely ticks all the boxes. When ordered new, this already sumptuous ‘Elegance’ model was specified with added options such as electric glass sunroof, heated seats, driver memory seat, supaguard protection, parktronic and wood/leather steering wheel. Finished in the stunning colour combination of Tansanite Blue with Sand Leather, it has covered just 42,000 miles from new with a truly impressive Mercedes record of 12 services, the last of which was carried out earlier this year. In 2021 the precautionary, recommended gearbox fluid and filter change was also completed. The history file starts with the original order form, dealer invoice and a number of bills and past MOT certificates. Originally purchased by us from the estate of the first owner via a mutual contact, we sold it to the second owner a year ago who has only parted with it owing to an unexpected house move. The car’s condition remains outstanding with excellent bodywork and an unworn interior that looks and smells almost new. A gentle under-bonnet de-greasing has uncovered an almost factory-fresh engine compartment. With just 42,000 miles covered, low ownership, terrific colour and specification, superb history and condition, this Mercedes has everything in its favour.
