Finished in the highly unusual colour combination of 432 Havana Brown with Beige Velour upholstery, this first year of production 190E 2.6 would have been quite something when it was first delivered in April 1987.

The bodywork of the car is in good overall condition, there are a few minor marks commensurate with age and mileage, but the paintwork is all good and there is no rust. All 5 15-hole alloy wheels are freshly refurbished and shod with new Bridgestone tyres and new wheel bolts.

Inside, the beige velour interior is in immaculate condition. There is no discolouration or staining to the material or wear to the driver’s seat bolster. The carpets are all excellent and have been protected by Mercedes Ribbed over mats. The early W201s have a dark brown dashboard, which I find more prone to cracking than later cars; but this one is original and perfect. The Zebrano wood trim is shiny and remarkably the door cards are all absolutely spot on. Maybe the best I have seen. There is no lifting or peeling of the vinyl at the top edge or around the armrests, which is remarkable for a W201.

It is fitted with a Blaupunkt Cambridge radio/cassette and power aerial, 4 electric windows, power sunroof, headlight wash wipe, alloy wheels and 70 litre fuel tank.

Driving a good 190E 2.6, even 33 years after the model was launched, explains perfectly what a compact saloon car should be like. Crisp responses, light-weight, planted handling thanks to 5 link independent suspension and superb performance from the silky smooth M103 engine. It’s easy to see why for many, this is Bruno Sacco’s finest design and every time I drive one I’m reminded that nothing compares.

Supplied by Rose & Young of Caterham, it was serviced by them 7 times, before being sold by Mertrux Derby in 1991 to a gentleman from Ashbourne who kept it for many years. It was passed through several members of this family before being bought by its last owner in 2019. The service book contains a total of 21 service stamps and in preparation for sale, including the aforementioned new tyres and refurbished wheels, it has been serviced including oil and filter, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor arm replaced, transmission fluid and filter, coolant flush, new front top mounts, front ball joints replaced and a wheel alignment. It is currently MOTd until November with no advisories, but 12 months MOT can be added before sale. A check of the MOT history online affirms the car’s excellent mechanical condition.

Overall, this is a very tidy and very rare example of arguably Mercedes’ best saloon car. No doubt in years to come, the opportunity to acquire a car with such a unique spec will be extremely hard fought. Whoever buys this car will have an extremely usable, satisfying modern classic that will draw attention for all the right reasons!
