SUMMARY

Sometimes, low mileage isn't everything, and the emphasis should really be more on condition, maintenance and history; this car demonstrates that perfectly.  Its not as if any Mercedes, particularly a diesel Mercedes can't handle mileages; back in 2016 I jumped in one of these (a 2004 E320CDI taxi) in Vilamoura, Portugal. I glanced across at the speedo to see the odometer reading 822,000 kms. On asking the driver, he took great pride in telling me it's all been done on the same engine and transmission. He told me, apart from routine maintenance ,the car is driven every day of the year, day and night except on Easter Day and Christmas day. This got me thinking that we're so hung up on low mileage, we dont realise these cars were designed to go on a very long time, if properly looked after, which this car clearly is, and at a relatively low 178K, its got rather alot of life left in it yet too.

It also has the OM648 Straight six, which is a bit of a secret as a far as he W211 is concerned, and makes this a real wold in sheep's clothing; this car isn't just lively or quick, its downright brutally fast; with a gut wrenching 500nm of torque, which is well into Ferrari or Porsche territory! Between 30mph-70mph, there's not many cars that can keep up with this E-Class. However being registered pre 2005, it benefits from a low tax rate and is surprisingly economical too. Thinking about it, there's not many cars of this era that can combine such performance with real world fuel economy.

MTSV CLASSIC MERCEDES

MTSV (an abbreviation for Mark Taylor Specialist Vehicles) was born out an incurable and lifelong obsession for anything with four wheels on it, especially those carrying the legendary Three Pointed Star. Established by me, Mark Taylor in November 2005 when the Classic Car market was in its infancy and long before “everyman and his dog” had jumped on the Classic Car bandwagon.  Specialising in Classic Mercedes from the late 1970’s, through to the 2000’s, I also frequently have the odd foray into other quality classics and sometimes even modern cars, however the qualification is always that it has to be interesting, and/or just a little different; my theory, which has served me well so far, is that if I like it, someone else probably will! 

My main specialisation is the legendary Mercedes W201 190 and Mercedes W124; I firmly believe these models were about as good as cars got in terms of sheer, teutonic  quality, and believe them to be the best cars Mercedes have ever made. I’ve built up a substantial knowledge of both the W201 190 & W124 over many years, which I’m always happy to share, and have recently contributed to a W201 buying guide written by Julian Parish.  I also have extensive experience of the most of the Mercedes models within my “band of interest” namely the W116, W123, W202 & W203 C-Class, W208 & W209 CLK, W210 & W211 E-Class, W126 & W140 S-Class, R170 & R171 SLK and the R129 SL-Class. Obviously as time goes on later models are coming onto my radar too.

MTSV has always, and will always focus on quality rather than quantity, and in doing so has earned, and continues to maintain an enviable reputation among its many customers both in the UK and abroad, many who are now three, four and even five times repeat customers, some of which have become good friends too.  I’m also listed in the Mercedes Club Directory as a recommended business and I’ve also had several of my rarer cars featured in the motoring press too.


THE MTSV DIFFERENCE

Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business.
