The W 114 coupé heralded a completely new range of cars for
Mercedes-Benz. Unlike everything else on offer. this did not take
any previous elements from the standard 180 from the 1950's. A new
designer was also bought in. Paul Bracq. who penned a pure and
uncluttered motorcar. The roofline came down and the seats lowered
to maintain headroom. The pillars were removed and all four windows
wound down completely out of sight. The engine was a 2. 5 litre. br/>fuel injected unit with Bosch Jetronic injection delivering 148bhp
and propelling this model up to a perfectly respectable 115mph. br/>especially in those days.

The first owner. it transpired. was Baron King of Bridgewater. br/>Secretary of State for Northern Ireland at the time. He specified
an automatic gearbox and alloy wheels from the limited options list
at the time. The car was sold some twenty years later to the
current and second owner. It had a damaged front wing by this time
and the new owner restored the car to the fine order you see it in
today. The number plate it carried under the first owner in Ireland
was expunged from DVLA records for secrecy at the time. and a new
age-related plate has since been attributed to it. Officially. this
makes it a one owner car with a known but slightly mysterious
past. The originality. low mileage and model rarity made this
not only too good to miss for Mercedes Enthusiast magazine who
dedicated an entire feature to this car. but also the museum
curators at Mercedes-Benz World where it has been on show. Supplied
with an MoT test certificate and history file. this desirable and
fascinating example not only looks good but has been used little. br/>looked after comprehensively and is reported to drive very
well.
