The used Mercedes-Benz E350 CDI Sport Coupe is a rare blend of thrilling sports car and luxurious grand tourer. This magnificent beast, which was introduced in 2009, has a 3.0-litre 227bhp diesel engine that propels prosperous motorists to 60mph in 6.5 seconds, and on to 155mph. Not bad for a large vehicle that averages 41mpg, has emissions of 179g/km, and can be taxed for only £200.

Now, the E350 CDI Sport Coupe is – as you might expect – extremely comfortable. This is partly due to the 'agility control suspension' that maintains the optimum ride by changing the behaviour of the shock absorbers according to the road conditions. In addition, the springs on the 'Sport' model are firmer than the standard SE specification, so this stylish coupé feels even more responsive than its sibling.

Despite being a curvaceous coupe, this capable lifestyle statement is reasonable practical. The front passenger compartment is spacious and even rear occupants have a fair amount of room. This complements the deep 450-litre boot that is large enough to easily swallow a couple of suitcases. Motorists can also specify the optional 'storage bin' that slides out from the boot's roof and can be used as either a tray or box.

Standard Mercedes-Benz E350 CDI Sport Coupe specification includes the striking AMG body styling kit, monstrous 18” alloy wheels, and electric seats. Safety-wise motorists are protected by numerous air-bags, including one for the driver's knees, plus the electronic stability programme and tyre pressure warning system. Pedestrian safety is important too so, in the event of a frontal impact, the 'active bonnet' lifts by 50mm to create a crumple zone for the unfortunate passer-by. Excellent work MB.

Prices for the used Mercedes-Benz E350 CDI Sport Coupe reflect its impressive credentials, so it is a considered purchase. In fact, Motoring.co.uk's 'buy safe' sellers list this stunning status symbol from £35,000. Clearly that is a healthy chunk of banknotes, but this solidly constructed beauty is worth every penny.
