Although not huge, the range is certainly wide enough to delight the eyes of the viewer. And anyone who thinks this is just another of those elitist luxury classic-car markets where millionaires go bargain-hunting at weekends is soon disabused of that attitude, as the line-up includes such examples as a Mercedes-Benz 200 of the W 123 model series in gleaming thistle green metallic.
First registered on 1 March 1985, at a time when Boris Becker was still dreaming of his first Wimbledon triumph, while many customers already had their sights on the newer W 124 model series. The vehicle has a miserly 33,500 kilometres on the clock.
While its state of repair and the number of just two previous owners are impressive, the list of optional extras is meagre: rear head restraints, headlamp washers, heated front seats and a radio. The rear mud flaps and slightly yellowed sticker on the rear window bear witness to the fact that this model has found its way from Sweden to the showroom in Stuttgart. Not a bargain, but a genuine find in this condition.
