Happy Birthday to a modern classic.


Mercedes launched the 124-series cabrio at the 1991 Frankfurt Motor Show, ending a two-decade gap that had seen the previous 280 SE Cabriolet end production in 1971. The 124-series E-Class Cabriolet remained in production until 1997, by which point Mercedes had built 33,952 examples: 15,380 with four-cylinder engines and 18,572 with six – including the rare E36 AMG convertible, of which only 68 examples were made, before Daimler took controlling interest in the Affalterbach-based performance workshop in 1999. The Cabriolet was also featured in the 1993 Tom Cruise movie, The Firm. Produced by Paramount Pictures.
