The ‘W124’ generation of today’s Mercedes-Benz E-class was initially launched in 1984. This generation had the formidable task of advancing the legacy left by the world-renowned previous generation ‘W123.’ Redesigned with an aerodynamically optimized body, the ‘W124’ was immediately well received and today is regarded as one of the most solid, well-built designs to emerge from Untertürkheim. With an entire line of sedans, coupes, station wagons, limousines, and convertibles, Mercedes-Benz engineered these cars to fulfill every automotive need. The CE coupes were aimed at buyers eager to display a sense of automotive individualism. Thanks to the numerous options available and its pillarless design, the coupes gave a sense of cultivated elegance, which still reigns true today. 

RADwood Ready

RADwood is a festival that focuses on the culture and vehicles of the 1980s and 1990s. RADwood, and the “RADwood Era” are now commonly used to reference this period of bodacious automotive history.

Hagerty took stewardship of RADwood in March of 2022 to build on the company’s purpose to save driving and car culture while expanding and supporting inspiring experiences for automotive enthusiasts.
