The Model: In October 1986, three years into the Mercedes-Benz 190 (W201) production, efforts commenced on its successor. Design work began in 1987, and the final design was chosen in 1989. Rough prototypes were tested in 1989, and the first production design prototypes underwent trials in 1990. The first generation W202 C-Class was introduced in May 1993, replacing the 190. The initial C-Class (W202) saloon rolled off the assembly line on June 1, 1993. It served as Mercedes’ entry-level model until 1997 when the A-Class was launched. The new series retained styling themes from the previous W201 but featured a smoother and rounder design, drawing inspiration from the W124 E-Class, W140 S-Class, and R129 SL-Class.

In the 1996 and 1997 Formula 1 seasons, the C36 AMG derivative of the C-Class served as the official Safety Car.

Sale Insight: This Mercedes-Benz C240 Elegance would make a great starter classic for enthusiasts. It is an honest example that comes with a great maintenance history.
