Meet the owner

Colin loves a sports car. Sadly, his wife passed away just before he bought the vehicle, but with his positive attitude about life, he wanted to make the most it and bought a sporty Mercedes that he has always wanted to experience.

He was extremely diligent with his purchase. After talking to a Mercedes club, they recommended him to a specialist. His diligence did not diminish at this point and requested that the specialists call him when the right one came around. He certainly made a good decision.

Colin has embarked on four shows and two continental tours to Holland and Germany in this vehicle and loved every second of it. We at Trade Classics are sure that the new owner will treat this machine as well as Colin has – we cannot wait to find it a new home.

Mechanics

It was a pleasure to sit alongside Colin as he took us around his local area of Bedworth where he showed us going through the gears and testing all other functionalities of the car. As you can see in the videos, Colin has really enjoyed himself in this car over the last three years and desperately wants someone else to care for it.

As you can see in the videos there were absolutely no issues in this respect. Colin assures us that the automatic gearbox is “very responsive”. The engine is a 3.2L straight 6.

There were no knocks or rattles on the drive out. Please watch the video to see the car performing. We were really impressed and it is a credit to Colin.
