From 1990 to 1994 (model years 1991–1994), Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500E (W124.036). The 500E was created in close cooperation with Porsche; each 500E was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany during assembly— taking a full 18 days to complete each model. Design began in 1989 and into 1991. Called '500E' through model year 1993, for model year 1994 it was face-lifted along with the rest of the range and renamed to 'E500'.
The 500E had a naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 engine derived from the 500SL (R129) roadster. Sports car braking performance also came from SL components: front SL500 300mm disks with 4-piston calipers came installed on the 1992 and early 1993 cars. The later 1993, and all 1994 cars came with the upgraded 320mm set taken from the 600SL. Rear brakes on all years were 278mm brakes from the 500SL. In the USA, the 500E came fully equipped, with the only options available to the buyer being a dealer-installed CD changer and an integrated cellular telephone. The 500E was only with four seats in left hand drive, with the four leather seats supplied by Recaro (the fronts heated).
Called the "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" by the press, performance tests of the day yielded impressive results: 0–100km/h(0–62mph) times of 5.5 to 6.0seconds and acceleration through the quarter-mile (0.4km) in 14.1seconds at 163km/h(101mph). The top speed was redline limited at 6,000rpm to 260km/h(~160mph). It was rated at 16.8L/100km(14mpg) in the city and 13.8L/100km(17mpg) on the highway.
With its aggressive stance: 1.5inches wider track, 0.9inch lower profile, flared fenders, side skirts, front air-dam and wide tires, the 500E is easily distinguished from its lesser brethren. Because of its look, limited numbers, hand-built construction, and unique pedigree, the 500E is already considered a "classic", even within Mercedes-Benz.
