It has been 25 Years Since the Last TRUE E-Class Cabriolet (and Coupe for that Matter)

Mercedes-Benz launched a fourth body variant in the medium-size segment in spring 1992 – the 300 CE-24 Cabriolet. Based on the W124 platform, the A124 (Cabriolet) and C124 (Coupe) were the last E-Class variants that were built on the same platform as their sedan counterpart. Today this open-top four-seater has become something of a coveted collectors’ item.

E-Coupes and CLKs that have come between 1997 and 2017 have all been based on slightly smaller chassis, usually the ones used on the C-Class model.

25 years on, Mercedes-Benz is honouring this first Cabriolet in the E-Class family by launching the “25th Anniversary” model, aimed primarily at collectors and lovers of unique cars.

Highlights of the luxurious and exclusive “25th Anniversary” Edition include 20-inch 5-twin-spoke alloy wheels, the Cabriolet Comfort package, open-pore elmwood trim, the AIR BALANCE package with the exclusive “DAYBREAK MOOD” fragrance, illuminated door sill panels with Mercedes-Benz lettering, velours floor mats with “25th Anniversary Edition” embroidery, ambient lighting, and the MAGIC VISION CONTROL wash/wipe system.

The interior features high-grade designo appointments in the new colour combination of macchiato beige/tizian red. An elaborate diamond pattern with carefully positioned perforation underlines the luxurious character of the new E-Class Cabriolet. There is a choice of exterior paint finishes – the new colour rubellite red metallic or iridum silver – both in combination with a dark red soft top.

The unique standing of the special model is emphasised by “25th Anniversary” badges on the front wings and on the centre console.
