Mercedes E-class W124 and (1984)

A quarter of a century has since the birth of W124-series E-class, yet every time we see it on the it looks incredibly fresh to For sure, the timeless design by Sacco plays a major in its evergreen status, but more the W124 was probably the best car ever made. It was developed Mercedes was still putting – instead of financial – targets in priority. Lengthy development and testing process made it flawless. It was so durable and reliable most production cars exist today. Provided maintenance, they can easily like new cars.

When it was born in 1984, was quite a technical progress the outgoing W123. The whole car was yet stiffer and roomier. It was thoroughly according to the laws of aerodynamics so coefficient of drag was down to (for models with tires). That matched the set by Audi 100. Amazingly, managed that without a unique style. This fitted neatly between (190) and W126 (S-class), a family trio. Rounded subtly curved surfaces the fenders, clear-cut boot and boot lid delivered a solid and impression. The same goes for the a classical example of minimalist and impeccable build quality.

The underpinning of the mid-size Mercedes was similar to that of the smaller It shared the latter’s struts and sub-frame-mounted multi-link rear so to deliver fine handling and Stuttgart’s traditional recirculating-ball might be a little slow and but it contributed to an effortless driving with 4-speed automatic 300E provided a 188hp 3-liter straight-six, which was smooth and eager to rev. engine mounts enhanced refinement further. Thanks to the low performance was good, i.e. 140 mph out on Autobahn and sub-8 seconds mph. The latter was every bit as Autocar magazine timed 8.4 sec on a track.

This was a true with rear seats than most other if not the company’s flagship SEC .

Due to the necessary chassis reinforcement the loss of B-pillars, the coupe was heavier than the saloon. road tests found its was no worse, and perfectly adequate for its Later 300CE-24 should better performance from its 24-valve engine. Nevertheless, the CE was about high-speed refinement back-road handling. Its steering was a slow and suspension a little for that usage.
