Mercedes-Benz E-Klasse Cabriolet Coupe

  • A traditional line since the “Stroke/8” Coupé (model series 114) from 1968
  • The first cabriolet in this market segment made its debut in 1991 in the 124 model series
  • Enduring fascination as a classic car of the past, a recent classic and a future classic

Elegant, sporty and luxurious: in the history of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, this is reflected in particular in the two-door coupé and cabriolet variants. These vehicles combine the classic virtues of the E-Class – exemplary safety and comprehensive long-distance comfort – with particular aesthetic finesse. To this day, it is these strengths that continue to make the E-Class Coupés and Cabriolets so successful. That model series’ direct tradition began more than 50 years ago with the Stroke/8 Coupés of the 114 model series and almost 30 years ago with the cabriolets of the 124 model series.

Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL 6.9 made its debut 45 years ago

  • The 8-cylinder engine with a displacement of 6.9 litres and 210 kW (286 hp) reaches a top speed of 225 km/h
  • Brave introduction in the wake of the oil shock
  • Press review: the “world’s best vehicle” and showing “courage” and “optimism about the future”

A clear commitment to power 45 years ago: in spring 1975 Mercedes-Benz introduced model series 116’s new, top-of-the-line model, the 450 SEL 6.9. The high-performance saloon was one of the fastest vehicles at the time, as only very few sports cars were able to reach even higher speeds. Nowadays, it’s a sought-after classic. “The 450 SEL 6.9 is a brand icon,” Patrik Gottwick says as the Head of ALL TIME STARS, Mercedes-Benz Classic’s own vehicle retailer. “Model series 116 vehicles have become very sought-after on the market, especially the ones with 6.9-litre M 100 engine. We have noticed a significant increase in demand over the past years and recent auction results show that the value of the 450 SEL 6.9 is on the up. The reasons for this being its levels of refined motoring, everyday qualities as a classic car and the very low production numbers of a mere 7380 vehicles.”

Thirty years ago, the Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II débuted

  • A high-performance sports saloon as the flagship model in the Mercedes-Benz compact model family
  • The homologation vehicle with 173 kW (235 hp) formed the basis for DTM touring race cars
  • Its première was the Geneva Motor Show in March 1990
  • 502 of the cars were built with a metallic blue-black finish

In 1990, Mercedes-Benz launched the 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II from the 201 model series. The high-performance sports saloon was the road-legal version of the DTM touring race car of the same name. The saloon, built in a small run of only 502 cars and always finished in blue-black metallic, can easily be recognised by its mighty rear wing for motorsport use.

Mercedes-Benz 124 model series, introduced 35 years ago

 


From a popular modern classic to an attractive, young vintage car: the Mercedes-Benz 124 model series inspires just as much today as it did at its premiere 35 years ago. The saloons were presented for the first time on 26 November 1984 in Spain. The estate, coupé, saloon with a long wheelbase and cabriolet were to follow. In 1993 the model series became the first generation of the upper executive segment of Mercedes-Benz to carry the E-Class name and thereby wrote itself into the long tradition of vehicles in this segment. Particularly sought-after classics include the 500 E and 400 E V8 versions, the performance versions by Mercedes-AMG as well as the elegant two-door versions. But vehicles of all other types in good, original condition and with low mileage are also in demand. ALL TIME STARS, the vehicle dealer of Mercedes-Benz Classic, has such very special cars of the 124 model series available again and again – for example, currently an E 200 from 1995 in the “Collectors Edition”.

Région Sud-Ouest: Week-End en Bearn – 12 et 13 octobre 2019

Rendez-vous avait été donné à l’hôtel « LE VIEUX LOGIS » à LESTELLE-BETHARRAM (65) à quelques kilomètres de LOURDES en ce samedi 12 octobre autour d’un petit déjeuner de bienvenue.
Direction la filature LARTIGUE à BIDOS pour visiter une des 3 dernières fabriques de linge basque. Nous avons eu droit à une explication détaillée de la fabrication de la toile basque et du fonctionnement des métiers à tisser.
Puis les 31 participants ont fait plus ample connaissance autour d’un déjeuner à l’HOPITAL SAINT-BLAISE (64). Cette petite commune de 80 habitants est classée au Patrimoine Mondial de l’UNESCO . C’est une étape très fréquentée sur la route de SAINT JACQUES de COMPOSTELLE. Un son et lumière dans la magnifique église a enthousiasmé tous les participants avant une visite guidée du village. Retour à LESTELLE-BETHARRAM pour une soirée et une nuitée réparatrices.
Le lendemain, direction le château de MAUVEZIN (65) d’origine médiévale. Construit sur un éperon rocheux, cette forteresse bâtie au XII° siècle a été achevée par Gaston FEBUS. La cour intérieure, exemple de l’architecture militaire, expose des répliques de machines de guerre du moyen âge. Dans les salles, superbement restaurées au cours du XX°, nous découvrons le mode de vie du moyen âge ainsi que le musée.
La fin de la matinée arrive et il est l’heure de se séparer après un déjeuner pris dans un cadre rustique.

Le délégué Sud-Ouest, Robert PONS
