1996 Mercedes C200 Elegance Auto

The C-class W202 replaced the long running 190 series in 1993 and early examples were produced under Daimler-Benz until 1998 when Chrysler became involved. It is generally recognised pre-98 vehicles were the last of the brand to benefit from exceptional MB build quality appreciated over decades. Fitted with the 16-valve M111 petrol engine of 1997 offered 134 bhp, achieved 60mph in 10.9 seconds and went on to 124mph with an impressive mpg of 33.4. The C200 was available with a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual shift option, electric windows, mirrors, central locking, ABS and air bags plus the Elegance trim package with veneer finish.

Our example was purchased on 26th July 96 and the history file includes the original order form from Vikings (MB) of Canterbury. Selected in Smoke Silver metallic with Mushroom Cloth interior the buyer deleted the sunroof option and selected air-con, cruise control and high-level brake light. Eight speakers, mud flaps and mats brought the purchase price to £26,632: a tidy sum in the mid-nineties. The first owner kept a hand-written log of the Mercedes service details and would often carry out additional oil changes, usually between official services; the MB records are on a 9k schedule.

The C200 has enjoyed limited use over recent years and in fact has covered just 6k miles since 2012; in 2018 the registration was passed to his son who has maintained the car but also found little chance to enjoy it.

MOT history also confirms the ultra-low mileage which stands at just 55K today, records also show this Mercedes has never failed a test, has no defects or advisories. On the road the Elegance looks right and drives perfectly, belies its 27 years presenting a factory fresh feel in town or at motorway speeds; everything works correctly, and mechanically this C200 is difficult to fault.

Visually, the finish is incredible, original paint all round and minus any supermarket dents or scratches. Obviously, with zero corrosion (Ziebarted from new) whilst the interior is perfect with the front seating protected by original delivery seat covers. Carpets are stain free with no wear and this delightful cabin boasts immaculate trim. This Mercedes is typical of the quality we look for at Milestone’s; fantastic value for an everyday classic or for the entry level enthusiast who seeks a solid investment. No doubt the car has been cherished by the previous owners but is now available for a new considerate custodian to enjoy. One of the final ‘real’ Merc’s; unblemished with ample Elegance.
