Mercedes-Benz W124 E-Class is Honest John's 'Classic Car of the Year' 2014

Published 15 May 2014

Since Honest John Classics was launched in 2013 it's database of classic car reviews has been ever growing. Everything is covered, from the Mini and Minor through to cars like the Lamborghini Countach. However the most popular review of the lot over was the Mercedes-Benz W124. 

It was awarded the title of Classic Car of the Year 2014 at the Honest John Awards in London, based on its popularity with visitors to That might be a surprise - it beats the likes of the Porsche 911 - but really it makes perfect sense. It's easy to maintain, durable and despite being easy to recognise as a classic it does a very good job of keeping up in modern day traffic, even at motorway speeds.
