In September 1991, as a further body variant of the 124 series Mercedes-Benz presented the 300 CE-24 Cabriolet. Production began in 1992. Cabriolet development was based on the Coupé, and in terms of mechanical components the Cabriolets were identical with their four-door counterparts. Like the Saloons they were equipped with multi-link independent rear suspension, thereby further improving ride quality compared with predecessor models, as well as shock absorber strut independent front suspension located by individual wishbones. The braking system was also borrowed without modification from the Saloons.
