"Hi Jesmond & Gloria, The car arrived yesterday. I am very impressed! - She's lovely. She must have been well packed as there is no damage at all, and nothing has gone missing. The guy who dropped the car off on a transporter was really impressed too, I think he wanted it for himself. Jesmond, your description of the car was spot-on, the Velox is just what I had hoped for.In the UK these cars are hard to find, and one this good is a real rarity. I am very pleased, and look forward to many happy years of ownership."Richard Crossley, Thamesport, United Kingdom
A Beautiful, Original Mercedes-Benz 250CE Coupe - an eye catching icon of 1960's German design. A classic pillarless coupe with beautiful proportions and an elegant style that never gets old. A car that was immediately successful on launch and is still a motoring icon today. The Mercedes-Benz company tag line “The Best or Nothing,” perfectly sums up the W114 and W115 chassis Mercedes sedans and coupes introduced in 1968. In fact, the 250 CE was the first car that Mercedes engineered in the post-war period.
It came from the desk of designer Paul Bracq and is widely regarded as the ancestor of the modern E-Class, has bomb-proof build quality, and is considered to be one of the most reliable cars ever made.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- This 250CE is an excellent example. Pretty much been garaged all its life, it has zero rust and has had three owners in the last 27 years.
- Motor reconditioned, bodywork all repaired, repainted and upholstery renewed 33449 miles ago
- Comes with a Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection system, this was the first time Mercedes-Benz used a fully-electronic fuel injection system in a production car.
- It is in great condition. The interior is extremely well-kept and is finished in MB-Tex material. MB-Tex is a vinyl material developed by Mercedes-Benz, which is durable and easier to clean than leather. There are also new carpets and all switches, dials and buttons are in working order.
- This car is powered by a M 114 920 6-cylinder 2496cc engine mated to an automatic gearbox
- This classic Mercedes-Benz coupe has a really sporty elegance to it and gets better looking with age.
Being Mercedes, these cars are not only great classics but especially reliable. Parts availability is excellent, with virtually everything available from Mercedes. There is also an understated elegance about these coupes that seems to say that the owner is someone who appreciates the very best but doesn't need to shout about it. For those not in the know, earlier Mercedes coupes are now trading for more than $60K in the US.
The 250C is quite rare with only 8,624 total examples built from 1969 until 1973. Worth noting that Pele, the coolest footballer of all time, drove a four-cylinder version at the height of his fame in 1970. So go on - be like Pele :)
A great investment and a stunning car to drive.
