    SOLD: 1994 E500, Azurite Blue / Black, 87,000km (Japan Auction)

    This is the second time an Azurite Blue Metallic (366) 036 car has gone through the Japan auctions over the past few years, not sure if this is the same vehicle or another one.

    One of fifteen produced in this colour according to our Wiki. Data card says production order so the colour may have been specially ordered. This is a European delivered car which found its way to Japan at some stage. It also has a cool wheel option (perhaps the EVO wheels were added later). Goes to auction tomorrow - wish I was in a position to make a bid.

    794 from 01.01.1992 " 8,5 X 17 ET30/18 245/45, 3-PIECE (500 E = ET30, R129 = ET18)"

    Two more years before these can be imported to the US. Such a shame.

    OMG, what a beautiful color!
    I have a Nautical Blue and a Midnight Blue 1992 500E's, but this Azurite Blue is smth else.
    I am sure its not polished, very well maintained color.

    Awesome color ! I realize no Azurite Blue Metallic 366 500e's in the US.
    But how about any W124 (300E, E320, 400E, E420) in Azurite Blue Metallic 366 in the US ??

    I love the blue's on this body style. Looks so crisp...and I think the blue interior is just as pretty.

    Would love a blue/blue 500 or a black/blue....does a black/blue interior exist?

    800,000 Yen is just over $7k, right?

    Yes, although I think the 800,000 YEN price is the starting price of the auction.

    The color is beautiful but I have to look hard to see the E500 under the paint. It almost looks like a Lincoln from the front.

    I would agree, and this particular auction house (ZIP), always over saturate their images to enhance the colour which can be deceptive. I have also had it the other way though, where I have received a car and found it to be better than what the pictures and auction sheet have made it appear - you throw the dice and take your chances.

    That was a bit creative comparison, Maui.

    It must be the grill. At first glance it reminds me of a 2007 Towncar.
