Rare Mercedes W124 300E Twin Turbo For Sale (1990)

This magazine featured car was one of a handfull converted by Turbo Technics. 315 bhp and unknow but massive torque means that it quite easily ran as quick as my E34 BMW M5, but the twin (small dia) turbos meant that there was almost zero lag and the tourqe enabled linear acceleration. The previous owner was pretty fastidious in that he replaced the head with a brand new unit, replaced the gearbox with a new factory one and had the entire interior re-trimmed, and then had the car repainted by a well known paint specialist. the reult is a car that looks like a normal quality family sedan but is a genuine and serious performer. The conversion is a well planned and executed affair and uses shorter conrods to lower the compression ratio as opposed to the usual cheaper other methods employed. The car has a Merc Sportline chassis and is more than capable of handling the power. It does now require a few touch ups here and there, but nothing that a few hundred pounds wouldn't take care of, or even the use of one of the Chips Away type repairs. I have driven the car in every traffic condition, including a two hour jam, and the temp stays put right in the middle. The Turbos are both water and oil cooled units. W124 Mercs are now starting to appreciate as much as they are appreciated as the best of the Mercs still in the good old 'over-engineered' way. A solid, rapid and quality investment.
