The Mercedes Benz C-Class series of compact executive cars launched in the mid-90s. These days, even entry-level luxury cars offer a wealth of features to satisfy all but the most discerning of buyers, and the 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is near the top of its class in terms of features.
This particular C300 comes with the luxury package, which features the 3.0-liter, 228-horsepower V-6 through a 7-speed transmission to the rear wheels. All models benefit from a hydraulic shock system with adaptive damping called Agility Control, and all get the Adaptive Brake and Pre-Safe systems from the larger cars. Of course, the C’s interior was wholly restyled and borrowed heavily from its more upscale siblings. This C300 is equipped with SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Heated Front Seats, Garage door opener, Rain Sensing Wipers, Power Folding Mirrors, and Burl Walnut wood trim.
The C300 has been in California for its entire life. Lisa Canepa's personal car and continuously maintained by Canepa
Upon arriving at Canepa, the C300 was subjected to a comprehensive inspection within our Service department and found to be in excellent condition throughout. Bruce Canepa decided to upgrade the C300, including lowering the suspension, AMG 18” wheels in Canepa “proprietary” magnesium graphite coating (process used in 959SC wheels). The C300 also received new Michelin sport tires 225/40/R18 in the front and 265/24/R18 for the rear, totaling over $8500 in upgrades.
To be offered with a full concourse-show-level “Canepa Difference” detail, Owners Manuals, Spare Key, Service Records, and Window Sticker, this is an opportunity to acquire a great value, low mileage C300.
