1 of 498 for '93...Super Rare Ultra Maintained
MB Classic Super Sedan!! Jointly developed with Porsche, he 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, he entirely hand-built 500E is close to a work of art. And how wouldn't it be with the plenty of parts sourced from the 500sl roadster, uch as the performance 4-piston caliper brake discs. Furthermore, he car was saturated with extra-components with buyers having had few options available for further customization, uch as a CD changer and a phone.

The theory was simple: stuff the Mercedes 500sl's wheels, rakes, ransmission, nd 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, t 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 (1992-1994).

This rare example has only 133,000 miles and 2 senior owners! From what I can tell the car is a two owner vehicle despite what the Carfax. The other owners only owned it a short period of time and then flipped the car to new owners. The original owner Mr. Robert Minerich is a prominent cattle baron and land owner out of Richmond, Y. From what I can gather there is also a Robert Minerich Jr who lives in Fallbrook/Yucaipa, A who is his Son. He most likely gave the car to his son around 40k miles which is when it went out to California. The son kept it till around 2004 when it was sold at auction, dealer acquired it, nd shortly thereafter sold it at 96k mi to Mrs. Aurora Taylor, little old lady in Whittier/Ontario, A area. Her and her husband owned it from 2004 to 2014 selling it with 131k only putting about 30k miles on it. The car was well maintained by a small local shop but she didn't keep any of the receipts. I had a 30 min conversation with her about the car. She also said radiator and water pump were done shortly before she passed the car along as well as the full wiring harness, lternator, nd belts which I have the receipts for. This car had an original MSRP of over $80,000 in 1993, o don't miss your chance to own it for a fraction of what has been invested..
