MB Classic Super Sedan!! Young Classic!
Canyon State Classics brings to market a low mileage 1993 Mercedes Benz 500E equipped with the highly desirable 5.0L V8 and factory widebody treatment.What Road and Track called a "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," you can call your own.
Jointly developed with Porsche, the car was a luxurious sporty sedan that is nearly unanimously regarded to be one of the last cars built by Mercedes with no thought for development expenses in mind. Generously fitted with numerous standard accessories and a 5.0 l v8 engine with 4-valve cylinder heads capable of a raw output of 326 hp, the entirely hand-built e 500 is close to a work of art. And how wouldn't it be with the plenty of parts sourced from the 500 sl roadster, such as the performance 4-piston caliper brake discs? Furthermore, the car was saturated with extra-components with buyers having had few options available for further customization, such as a cd changer and a phone.
The theory was simple: stuff the Mercedes 500sl's wheels, brakes, transmission, and 322-hp v-8 into the w124 e-class. The build process was less simple. The 500e's flared-fender body shell was assembled at Porsche's Zuffenhausen facility and then shipped to the Mercedes plant in Sindelfingen for painting. After that, it was sent back to Porsche for final assembly. There were only 498 units built in 1993 and a total 1,505 units built for the entire line for US Delivery (1992-1994).
This rare example has only 131,000 miles and 3 senior owner! The car was bought new in Florida as a lease but made its way out to the Southern California area by the late 90's where it lived the rest of its life until about a month ago when it was brought here to AZ to be offered to the world. The car received many its scheduled services on time with no expenses spared, so you know this car has been extremely well cared for.
