Spotted in China: W124 Mercedes-Benz E220

A very fine W124 Mercedes-Benz E220, seen on the same rainy day in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. The W124 ‘E-class’ was made from 1985 until 1996, the E220 saloon was only made from 1993 until 1996. The W124 was never officially exported to China and therefore a very rare find! Earlier on we met a good ‘200’ in Beijing but this Chengdu car loox even better.

The E220 was powered by a 2.0 four-cylinder that pooped out 150hp and 210nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. I peeked through the window but couldn’t see a thing and my old iPhone3 doesn’t have a flashmachine. 99% of expensive cars that are in China do however come with an automatic, so we got us here a safe guess…

This E220 looked almost like new. Paint was perfect. Tires and alloys are original, no crappy spoilers or other messy stuff, just a perfect E220. It had a 2012 insurance sticker which means somebody is still using this great Benz, and that for sure it the best thing of all.

    parked next to a construction site… on a rainy day… unwashed… completely standard… STILL looks classy as hell! even though it’s a mopf 2, which is not my favorite choice. like the grille of pre-mopf and mopf 1 much more.
