2002 Mercedes C230 Widebody

The Sportcoupe models of Mercedes’ C class fall into that same odd place as the BMW 318ti. Not the most fantastic looks, economy based powerplants and trim. This particular model has had some work done so much so tat it got itself a place in the February 2009 European Car magazine.

The car’s supercharged 2.3 four is pumping out 280 horse power thanks to a Kleeman pulley, Supersprint headers, and Renntech intercooler and sending power through a manual transmission. Elsewhere custom flares are in place to fit massive rims, and big brakes.

Nice interior features include plenty of custom audio work.

The car has 36,282 miles and the seller has a buy it now price of $23,900, bidding sits at a reserve not met $5,000 for now.

Overall the mods make this hatch look good, be advised he seller has zero eBay feedback.

  1. The purist in me couldn’t even pay blue book for that poor C230. The rear fender looks way out of proportion.

    $24k would get one into a new (tasteful) GTI.

    It would be interesting if your blog kept track of the selling prices on ebay.

  2. Bidding only hit $5,901, reserve not met. Even if the seller had decent feedback this car is not ever going to see anything close to the seller’s buy-it-now. Just looks too much like a bit of an ugly duckling.
