This is one of the best W202 C-Class, I've seen, and also a very rare Sport model, featuring the superb M112 V6 engine, and is also fitted with the even rarer optional factory AMG handling upgrade; this is a combination seldom seen on the W202, due to it's very high cost when new (this car cost over £42,000 in 1998!). This is also an extremely quick, but usable car, and essentially an AMG car in everything but name, especially with the chassis option. It's not widely known, but the C36 AMG was actually a modified C280, as Mercedes took C280 Sport models (as required) directly from the production line, transporting them to the AMG factory, where they were modified. It was a different case with the C43 though, which was the first dedicated factory built AMG car made, after Mercedes decided to bring the AMG operation in house. The comparison I'm making here is that if you were to find an W202 C36 (which is essentially a modified C280 Sport) in the same condition to this one, with a similar mileage and provenance, you'd be looking at paying around double what I'm asking for this car. Also, having said that, a C36 would have the potentially problematic M104 straight six, with all its potential pitfalls (head gasket, wiring looms, throttle bodies etc) whereas this car is fitted with the much more reliable M112 V6 engine, which I think is one of Mercedes best engines for quite some years.
So, in summary a highly attractive, quality performance saloon, which can be used daily, if required. It's also a little more subtle than the official AMG models, and has the added benefit of very reasonable insurance and running costs.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business. To read more, see my website at - details above

Finally, I'm situated in Keighley, West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
