The Mercedes-Benz E-Class convertible is without a doubt the most classy 124 around. It was no secret that the open version of the W124 would quickly become a classic. The four seater convertible had everything you would expect from Mercedes Benz. Beautiful lines drawn by Bruno Sacco, quality craftsmanship and extremely reliable (well aware this could be a point of discussion. But before the biodegradable wiring started degrading they where extremely reliable).

Before the introduction of Modellpflege 2 (MoPf2) the inline-6 engines from the W124 300E with a M103.980 producing 180 Hp (132 Kw) and the W124 300E-24V M104.980 producing 220 HP where the only engine options they where built in. With MoPf2 they were supplemented by the E200 with the M111.940 producing 136 Hp (100 Kw) and the E220 with a M111.960 producing 150 Hp (110 Kw). A new inline-6 was also introduced, the E320 with a M104.992 producing 220 Hp (162 Kw). This was actually the first real M104 engine in the convertible. The M104.980 is an engine that is somewhere in between but that’s a story for another time. All these engine upgrades where done in view of stagnating sales.
