The sportsman in a suit - Mercedes 500E
In the early 1990’s if you were rich, wanted to go very fast and wanted 4 seats there weren’t many options. When it arrived, the 500E caused quite a stir. A massive V8, 4 speed automatic gear box and a stunning wide body that is subtle enough so that only people who know what it is look at it.
In 1992 the 500E was the fastest production sedan in the world, with 150 mph top speed, and 0 – 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. This was the Mercedes muscle car.
The high-performance variant of the W124 is considered by many to be father of the modern factory production V8 Super Sedan, whose bloodlines live on today in the form of the E63 AMG. Each car took an unheard-of 18 days to complete, hand-built at Porsche (in the same facility that previously built the 959) with special flared bodywork, modified SL suspension, SL brakes, Recaro seats, and powered by a naturally-aspirated, all aluminum 5.0L V8 making 322 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque.
This Smoke Silver 500E is an extremely well-kept example true to original form. In and out it is clean as a whistle. No after market modifications have been made allowing for a true experience as it was intended. Included with this 500E are complete original owners handbooks and leather folio, thorough and impressive service records and receipts totaling over $35,000. Great care went into sourcing original and appropriate parts along the way to keep this vehicle unaltered. The engine is very strong and runs extra smooth. The transmission was professionally rebuilt in house at MB in Germany at 95K miles. The majority of the miles came from its life as a ballistic missile on west coast highways. I'm the first owner to bring it to the northeast, where it currently rests in a lush heated garage awaiting beautiful sunny days and clear roads. All of the cornerstone maintenance is well detailed in the included treasure chest of documentation along with receipts.
The body is in excellent condition - No accidents, no dents, no rust with only minor nicks and scratches. Front air dam does have a small cosmetic tear that was there when I bought it. Clear coat has thinned in a couple spots due to weather, primarily on top of the front fenders. It's imperfections allow for a completely immersive driving experience without having to worry about putting that horrific very first scratch on a brand new machine or fully restored classic. This machine is meant to be driven, fast. It's not meant to sit in a garage collecting dust. That being said it’s not far from perfect. The original Mercedes wheels are crisp. No curb rash and damage free. Doors open and close as they should. The chrome trim is beautiful, the rubber components and seals are like new.
Sit down in the premium leather wrapped 19 way, powered Recaro seats and you'll feel as though you entered a brand new car. The interior is immaculate. This car has never been smoked in. The leather and carpeting is so clean you'll wonder how the vehicle acquired its milage. The Blaupunkt stereo never worked while I've owned the car and I just couldn't bring myself to replace it with non-OEM equipment. Can't say I ever missed it though. The sound coming from the engine bay is entertaining enough for me. The classic Mercedes Dash board is free of cracks, the center console wood is in very good condition as well. AC blows cold and working perfectly.
The Legendary, successful and famous engine (MB-Code M119) used for over 10 years in different models is working with no issues. All the power is there as you would expect from 5.0 V8. There are no expenses spared in order to keep this engine healthy. The most recent service includes a new battery, new ignition coils, new alternator, complete tune up, new oil pump, CO2 sensor, new belts, wires and hoses, cooling system service, among others. Consult the summary of service sheet for more detail.
The genuine, untampered nature of this particular machine increases not only it's rarity, but future collectability and value. As time passes these models will only be more sought after.
