Mercedes E350 CDI Convertible

This car is absolutely stunning, Metallic pearl white paint with contrasting matt black alloy wheels and red AMG brake calipers, The car looks unbelievable and turns heads everywhere it goes. Matt black front grill and bumper detailing against the white bodywork looks sublime. Full service history and a long mot. Covered 129k effortless miles.

The E 350 only offers an extra 27bhp over the E 250 (228bhp to 201bhp), but the 3.0-litre diesel delivers a whopping 398lb ft to the 2.0-litre petrol’s 229lb ft. And this linear surge of torque is far better suited to the E-class’s nature, making for easy, relaxed cruising with ample shove for overtaking and more spirited driving when the mood takes.

The seven-speed ’box is superior too, with barely detectable shifts both up and down. Its only drawback is the now familiar hesitation to respond to throttle movement at low speed and under certain conditions. It’s hard to define exactly when this may or may not happen, and it’s this inconsistency of behaviour that makes the trait most annoying.
