Into the front of 300 CE-24, started into market in 1992, came a six-cylinder-petrol-engine with 220 HP. Thousand parts of the cabriole built onto the base of coupe were changed or reinforced to make the big Merci with openable roof similar comfortable and safe as its hard-top brother was. At the renewal in 1993, the 43-kg-linen roof received for this reason an inner noise-reduction layer and to the basic equipment became the motor-roof. The engine supply has been widened then, because appeared the four-cylinders: The E200 with 136 HP and the E230 with 150 HP. The power of E320 remained 220 HP, and the peak E36AMG delivered 272 HP.
