    From the auctioneer's site:
    http://www.russoandsteele.com/collec...enz-500E/18991

    Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 18th – 22nd, 2012 at Russo and Steele's 12th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction.

    The car up for auction is a California and Arizona car with absolutely no rust. The Interior and Exterior is over 8 out of 10 and it has been mechanically restored in 2011. It is all original withpower and heated front seats, sun roof, rear power shade, and the only available dealer installed options of a remote CD player an analog console cell phone. This is an all original fast and superb handling sports sedan that outperforms most other cars on the road. The 1992-1994 Mercedes 500E is truly special because of its unique involvement with Porsche, something no other Mercedes model can claim, past or present.

    ======================

    No affiliation.

    Gerry, just curious, any prior record of the car in your VIN database?

    Re: Russo & Steele Auction in Scottsdale - 1993 500E black pearl/black

    Unfortunately no prior record of this car (in terms of any explicit details outside of the VIN card data). Thanks for the heads up -- I've added the detail provided to the database.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Re: FS: 1993 500E, black pearl/black, 146kmi (Russo & Steele Auction in Scottsdale, AZ)

    Listed for sale on eBay:

    1993 Mercedes 500E."The Wolf" 330hp VERY RARE. Beautiful! Will Sell! NO RESERVE

    DUE TO THE INTEREST THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN SHORTENED TO 3 DAYS...Like I said I wont end the auction...Demand has shortened this auction. As truly it's cheap. Those in the "Know" know it too! Tell u what..Buy it now. Keep it out here until the auctions start in December..Enjoy the warmth..and make 5 grand. I wont take side offers....and magically the auction and listing ends (cause someone bought it under the table) NOPE..That's for those LYING car dealers !! This auction is real (no games)..highest bidder wins at auction close. My 1993 Mercedes 500E is one of only 1596 produced and hand built that year. You will see other 500 series Mercedes here on ebay. They are NOT this car. This was a special "Supercar" Mercedes produced with the M119 engine. Don't be fooled.."The Wolf"is not your Dad's '93 500E. This Mercedes 500E was produced ONLY from model year 1991 through 1994 and was created with close cooperation with Porsche ONLY; "The Wolf" 1993 500E was hand- built by Porsche and Mercedes (and Daimler signed) They were literally transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen. Each car took 18 days of hand building and assembly to finish. This cars original price tag at Schumacher Mercedes in Scottsdale AZ was $83,500 (in '93). The 1993 500E is a 4 door passenger sedan with individual Recaro seats front and rear (heated and real leather) It utilizes the 500SL engine (5L 32Valve, DOHC, Fuel Injected, 330 Horsepower engine (M119.) Bosch Jetronic fuel injection (very rare). Suspension is self leveling and hydraulic. 4 speed Automatic with the "Slap stick" mode that lets the driver start in 1st gear. The vented front brakes are huge 320mm 4 piston caliper vented front racing brakes from the 600SL. It truly is the best of the best. Listen to the doors shut..Says it all ..perfect and never hit. Garaged its whole life..except for the occasional romp that is.

    About one third of the 500E' s were allowed to be imported to the USA from '91 through '94. This car passed California emissions as that was the port of entry and is 100% legal in all 50 states (not grey market) Pure Arizona car. Absolutely no rust...NONE.
    Facts: Nickname- "THE WOLF" (in sheep's clothing) by the US press
    0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds
    1/4 mile 14.1 seconds at 101mph ( I did it in 109mph allegedly)
    Top Speed 161 mph (allegedly at 6000 rpm Note: Small animals..birds, cats, dogs, coyotes and rabbits are considered scary at 161mph.

    All metal flares, wider track, lower profile, side skirts, air dam with wide tires sets it apart from the 300E body style or any normal 500E. 1 owner car. I bought it from the original owner through a high dollar car auction here in Scottsdale AZ. Full top end completed 2011. Mechanically perfect. 147K miles. (got another 150K miles left in her easy!)..go to Mercedes here on ebay and select HIGHEST MILEAGE first in the search engine...look at 'em 300K on some Routinely 200 K on most... This rare 500E is solid and dependable and very very very fast. BTW. You got a problem with the car. I will fix it. before you drive away. End of story. This car is from my personal collection. It will be perfect as described. With no issues. Other than hate to sell it. (too many toys) Really! Trust me. "The Wolf" is a BEAUTIFUL EXOTIC FIRE BREATHER and as comfortable as your living room to relax in. Cruises at 110mph with ZERO effort.

    Small flaws now. Every Mercedes I have ever owned dripped tranny fluid and small oil droplets from time to time. The wolf is no exception..Its considered normal..Just like a Harley..Translation: Small towel and wipe garage floor once a week. Its routine and normal. I once had a buddy have a nervous breakdown "chasing" a small tranny drip from his 500SL...That was 5 years ago and he is still chasing it.. Those that know ...well you know I'm telling the truth. The Germans used few gaskets..Most of the "Metal to Metal" was machine lapped..Its all about the Torque of the bolts not gaskets and silicone..Answer: Don't worry about it!..it's boringly normal. ..and it will be the last thing on your mind at 161mph....Worry about small animals instead..

    The interior is a solid 9 the paint a 8.5..small dings (2 or 3) 100% original. This is a true auction. No reserve. I will help arrange for shipping worldwide (your expense) auction will not end early. Priced to sell ..First bid wins..Good Luck and bid with confidence. Check my feedback..Thanks Todd !!

    Professionally maintained (The Navy A4 Jet not included in sale) Ps. I know fast..and I know good equipment. This is the best sedan I have ever had the pleasure of "Flying".. It is an Autobahn KING!

    An interesting quote from the listing:

    Sold for $12,650 at auction which included buyers premium.

    Admin edit: This was at the Russo and Steele auction in Jan-2012, not the eBay auction in Sept-2012.

    I think he meant at the previous Russo and Steele auction... guess the new owner either got bored easily, or didn't like the "normal" fluid leaks. LOL.

    Re: "1/4 mile 14.1 seconds at 101mph ( I did it in 109mph allegedly)" I find that 1/4 mile @ 109mph hard to believe for a stock 1993. If it's stock, the guy is smoking some good stuff, which could blur his vision...which could explain where he got the 330hp number.

    Yeah, I saw that, and just chuckled. A visit to a dragstrip with CompuLink timing lights would reveal a depressingly different number.
