This incredible W202 C280 is in exceptional throughout having covered just 51k miles from new with a full Mercedes service history from the supplying dealer.
Sold new in October 1995 by Rossetts of Eastbourne, it was specified with the 2.8-litre straight-six engine (fairly rare in the W202), automatic gearbox and Elegance specification that includes air conditioning and 8-hole alloy wheels. Finished in Polar White with Mushroom cloth.
This is a two owner car, the first owner kept the car three years, then it was resold by Rossetts in 1998 to its second, retired owner who kept it 22 years until we acquired it recently.
Having been garaged throughout its life and fastidiously cared for, this C280 is in quite incredible condition inside, outside and underneath. It is completely original, right down to its ‘Rossetts’ number plates.
The service history is quite simply as good as it gets. It has only ever been serviced and repaired by the supplying Mercedes main dealer, formerly Rossetts of Eastbourne, now Mercedes of Eastbourne. There are 22 stamps in the service book and a folder full of all the accompanying bills. All books and manuals and both remote keys. HPI clear with certificate. 12 months MoT.
With six-cylinder power this W202 is really enjoyable to drive. The engine is smooth and powerful and the whole car is incredibly refined. It feels as fresh as new.
