This page describes one of my motorcars, a Mercedes Benz 300/320 CE Sportline coupé.

The 300CE (C = Coupé, E (Einspritzung) = Fuel injection) is one of the last of the true Mercedes coupés, and continues to be one of the classically-styled MBZ sportscars. The 3.2 L 24-V I-6 motor was first introduced in the 1993 model. It was rebadged in 1994 as the E320 (E = Executive). The type-W124 was produced until 1995, and was superceded by the type-W210 (sedan and touring configurations only) in 1996.

This page also includes a small gallery of W124 CE 2-door motorcars.



As its tracking work in progress, this webpage will always be under construction, so check back every now and then for updates...
