By: Dwyane Thomas

There are luxury sedans laying claim that theirs is a thoroughbred, exceeding performance and functionality aside from the luxurious looks ithey project. But as the cliche goes, beauty is skin-deep. Most of them are just knock-offs failing to deliver their promise especially in times of critical applications. Sad to say, the loads of money spent on these so-called "luxury cars" are not that worth it.

The Mercedes Benz 300E is a clear exemption to that. It is a mutant of the many superlatives that can be mentioned through its proven worth through the years. This mid-sized luxury sedan is powerful, fast, smooth, economical, reliable, safe, and has a high resale value for its engineering virtuosity, to name a few. It established the ante of what a fast, robust and competent sedan should be. No wonder it became a sure fire hit among Benz and non-Benz aficionados.

Introduced during the 80's, the Mercedes Benz 300E is one of the pioneer models for the E class line of the Benz. For trivia's sake, the E stands for "Einspritzung," which is German for fuel injection, a very new feature at the time the "E" first appeared in the 1950's. It sits on an internal chassis from the W124 platform. This 4-door sedan can rev up to 220 horsepower with its 3.2 liter inline six with dual camshafts.

The early versions of the 300E has a 4-speed automatic transmission or on a 5-speed manual transmission. Its curb weight of 3195 lbs. made it one of the lightest luxury vehicles in the industry. Thus, it gains excellent and balanced handling feel. It is tossable and nimble, while the 4-door go-kart ambience makes the Mercedes Benz 300E truly a joy to ride. Not to mention its standard amenities like leather, zebrano wood and a wide variety of fitments for the riding pleasure of its passengers. Precise engineering and beyond-industry standards materials have been its bread-and-butter, having reached 0 to 60 mph in 8 seconds for the older version.

The dawn of the 90's saw the Benz featuring a two-traction upgrade via its traction control system as it became an optional package on its rear-wheel drive versions. This was also the time of inception of the automatic locking differential that could be installed on its turbo and diesel-powered sedan edition. After a year, the 300E introduced two new offsprings powered by a V8 engine, which produces 258 horsepower.

Ever wonder what makes this uber-car tick and dominate in its class? The Mercedes Benz 300E parts make up the total performance package of the Mercedes Benz 300E. Made only with the finest materials and gone through rigid, scientific testing, and accessories don't give in to any form of compromise. A Mercedes Benz 300E part like the exhaust system spews out exhaust gases to heave more air for more efficient engine combustion. Another crucial Mercedes Benz 300E part is the brake assembly, composed of subparts like the brake caliper, brake pads, brake rotors and master cylinder for ensured stoppage power for the vehicle.

The Mercedes Benz 300E offers nothing but mere total performance, luxury and multi-functionality. It can be a cab in countries like Portugal or Singapore, or it can be a police interceptor vehicle in Germany. The capabilities of this dynamic vehicle seem boundless.
