This rare C124 Carat Duchatelet presents to an exceptionally high standard; it’s arrow-straight along both sides and completely free from any chips or major blemishes. The gleaming Almandine Red paint finish is second to none with a deep lustful shine, the only imperfections to note being a couple of small scrapes low down on front apron. All of the chrome and plastic trims are immaculate with no marks or sun damage, and the lights are crystal clear showing no signs of moisture ingress. This rare edition truly defies its age/mileage and would certainly make an excellent show car.
The cabin also presents beautifully, the leather retaining a soft matte finish free from wear to the bolsters and piping. All the door cards, plastic trims and dash are pristine, and the special Carat Duchatelet walnut inlays are perfect. The spotless carpets are fully protected with a nice set of piped overmats and the Carat Duchatelet steering wheel still appears fresh. All the controls have been checked and work as they should, the only non-standard item being a Pioneer head unit with Bluetooth capability. At the rear of the car the boot area is very clean with the spare wheel, warning triangle and jack all present and correct.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The engine compartment is very clean and completely free of any corrosion; even the sound deadening on the underside of the bonnet remains in excellent condition. The car has been given a clean bill of health after its inspection, and with 21 stamps in the service booklet it has clearly been well maintained throughout its life. The mechanics of the car remain factory standard aside from the addition of an Ulter stainless steel exhaust, which sounds great.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Mercedes comes with two sets of alloys; the two-piece rims photographed are all in fantastic condition and are shod in nearly new tyres. Also available are the original Carat Duchatelet alloys in good condition but requiring tyres. The suspension has been upgraded recently with new shocks and springs that have lowered the ride height giving the car a more purposeful stance.
The current owner has had the car for five years and there have only been four previous keepers. It has been maintained to an excellent standard with 15 main dealer Mercedes-Benz stamps and 6 specialist, all present in the original service booklet; the last service was carried out in March 2018 less than 1k miles ago. There is also a file full of invoices detailing every expenditure on the car right back to the late ‘90s along with every MOT certificate from 1998. The History File is complete with the original document pack, all owners’ manuals, a spare key, an original W124 brochure, and a Carat Duchatelet sales brochure.
