One of the most revered models to come out of the Mercedes stable and still very much a sought-after model and especially in the form of the 2.5 Litre Manual. This example has been well pampered by its previous owners and more recently undergone an extensive restoration program costing well over £12k over a period of 18 months. It is fitted with the much sportier and more desirable 5 speed ZF Manual gearbox, which combined with the high revving multi-valve four-cylinder motor provides unbelievable levels of performance and joy. The car delivered around 204 bhp back in 1989 and has had Compression Test carried out on its Cylinders to show little loss in bhp over the years but the torque and the pull negate that beautifully and is just as punchy and pulls quicker than most modern vehicles with similar figures. The 2.5 Litre did not suffer from some of the double row timing chain issues known to exist with the 2.3 Litre engines. The car also features rare Factory fitted tilt headrests.
The vehicle comes with Spare Keys , Manuals, Good Service History, Part Stamp Mercedes Service Book and lots of paperwork with Original Receipts.
Having only just put through MOT the Cosworth passed with no advisories and has 12 months MOT until November 2020.
