A genuine Mercedes rarity from the mid-nineties, the 124 series in AMG form. Available in Saloon, Coupe, Convertible and Estate versions.
This edition being offered before the Mercedes/AMG marriage that didn’t happen until 1999 so for a long time, official figures never really existed of how many were made, so estimates were the closest you’d be given. However, over the years it’s believed that in its 4 variations of saloon, coupe, convertible & estate only 57 were officially imported into the UK.
These break down as;
Of course, these are calculated numbers of what has come about over many years of searching from different sources. Mercedes now act deaf & dumb to give out numbers for their cars, unfortunately, but a lot of figures were available for many years beforehand, so these are broken down from those days. Even Mercedes magazines used to print the ‘official’ number of cars sold in the UK.
What I’ve got planned for this page is rather than naming colours to models will be to show a list of old adverts when the cars were available from c1995 to 1997. So it will be ‘spot your car’ style. I’m still researching for this, but have about 30 adverts to date. Of course, there will be those that went to one owner and then not sold again until much later so won’t be included in this first initial batch of adverts.
Here are a few adverts to start with…
Is this one of your cars above from adverts in 1998?
Here is E36 Saloon at Cruickshank (later to be Sytner) in Bristol in June 1996… Did yours come from there?
MANY MORE TO COME SOON… Adverts & updates!
