RARE E500, 1 FL OWNER, 108K ACTUAL MILES, CLEAN HISTORY, ALL MAINTENANCE RECORDS
It's time to buy a sports car disguised as a premium German sedan. This 1994 Mercedes-Benz E500 might carry a tri-star badge, but it has a Porsche legacy. This special history has been taken care of exceptionally well, right down to the 332 hp 5.0-liter V8 under the hood.
If you know the history of the E500, then seeing one this well taken care of should get you excited. After all this was a special project that ferried these sedans in-between Mercedes and Porsche in Stuttgart. Mercedes sent E-Class bodies over to Porsche where they added subtle flared fenders, modified the suspension, and strengthened the chassis to accept V8 power. And beyond this cool collaboration, this E500 is desirable for being a well-executed precision machine. Big German sedans always look best in precious metal colors, so the factory Smoke Silver Metallic two-tone paint is a true gem. Of course, that's also because Mercedes has always been one of the best at applying multi-stage paints that keep their luster for decades. With an original sticker price over $80K, this car was built to last. That's why the panels retain their precision gaps, and the doors shut with that authoritative Mercedes 'THUNK'. Without question, this car makes a statement and it's impossible to not be impressed with the amount of quality that you get for this value price.
Inside, the E500 is distinguished by two rows of individual sports seats. These leather-clad buckets seem to perfectly showcase the car's dual luxury and performance mission. Up front, there's heated buckets with dual memory settings that adjust in every possible direction. Plus, the wheel tilts and telescopes, and all that wood is real. But there's another side to Mercedes amenities that are always a nice bonus. This premium marque is known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this can be seen on everything from the dual airbags to the anti-lock disc brakes. There are other desirable modern features that includes a sunroof, power windows, power steering, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, automatic climate control, and a premium AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer.
What makes the E500 so special is under the hood. The Mercedes/Porsche collaboration created a German muscle car by taking a V8 made for the larger and sportier cars and fitting it into a lighter, mid-size body. The 32-valve, fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8 was borrowed from the S-Class, and Porsche installed it in the engine bay. This 322 hp powerhouse was the perfect match with the sharp suspension of the E-Class. Plus, the 1994 model cars even got an upgrade to the larger four-wheel disc brake system borrowed from the 600SL. The result is a true sports machine wrapped around the stealthy luxury German body. And because this is a true Mercedes, you can still use this speedy sedan as a luxury cruiser. The four-speed automatic transmission, power steering, refined balance makes this one feel solid during every road trip.
This amazing Mercedes/Porsche matchup only happened for a few years, and during that time only about 1,500 examples were sent to the U.S. It's this kind of rarity that has kept this one-owner car under correct care all its life. The sale even comes with all the right paperwork, including the original window sticker, owner's manual, title documentation, and maintenance records. So you already know what kind of valuable classic this is, and if you hurry, a very exotic Mercedes can be yours for a very common price. Call today!!!
