Lot details

Registration No: V301 MOA
Chassis No: WDB2021332F891013
MOT: April 2024

  • Only 5,600 miles from new
  • One owner between 2000 and 2018, who is understood to have been a photographer for a Mercedes-Benz dealership
  • Desirable Sport trim model and very well preserved for a twenty-four year old car
  • Purchased by the vendor in 2018 and retained in a small private collection of cars

PLEASE NOTE: This lot has been freshly recommissioned and serviced for sale and is offered with a no advisory MOT certificate until April 2024.

Replacing the W201 C-Class, the W202 was introduced in 1993, initially with two petrol and two diesel offerings: C180 1.8, C220 2.2, C220 2.2 diesel, and C250 2.5 diesel. Soon followed by the introduction of C200 2.0, and C280 2.8, with all variants being chain-driven, multi-valve, DOHC. Four distinctive trim levels were offered, Classic, Elegance, Esprit, and Sport. The Sport featured lowered and uprated suspension, alloy wheels, sport seats, a carbon effect dash, leather rimmed steering wheel, and a sunroof, being aimed at the more sporting driver.

Manufactured in 1999, the C220 CDI Sport offered, was supplied new to the United Kingdom, being registered on the 1st of September that year. Specified from new with the five-speed automatic transmission, air conditioning, acceleration skid control, electric windows all round, front armrest, outside temperature indicator, and interior safeguarding package, the Mercedes is finished in Brilliant Silver with Black cloth interior upholstery. Thought to have been a dealer demonstrator when new, the Mercedes-Benz was sold to its first private owner in late September 1999. Only retained by him for a year, ‘V301 MOA’ entered the ownership of its long-term keeper in September 2000, who is understood to have been a photographer for a Mercedes-Benz dealership. However, the gentleman used the car sparingly and, by 2008, the C-Class was taken off the road and placed into dry storage.

Dry stored for a decade, the Mercedes was purchased by the vendor to add to his small private collection. Now offered for auction as a very well-preserved example, featuring original front foot mats, jack, and complete first aid kit, ‘V301 MOA’ is surely one of the lowest mileage W202s surviving! Starting readily and ‘running well’ during our recent photography session, the Sport is accompanied by the original book pack including service book, displayed in the Mercedes-Benz wallet, a previous logbook illustrating the long-term previous ownership, and is due to possess a fresh MOT certificate in time for sale. One not to be missed by the Mercedes-Benz collector, or anyone after a very low mileage C-Class!
