    SOLD: 1992 500E, Black/Black, £10k, restored by Raikku (Surrey, UK)

    https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4973

    I’m very sad for putting this car up for sale behalf of Raikku who passed away 4 months ago.
    He did spend lots of time and money on this car as you can see from his old thread. Car has sat outside now for 2years and not driven.
    needs bodywork done.

    please kindly message me for more information.


    Car is in Surrey,UK

    My Condolences.
    This is a very good price for a car well maintained.
    It will sell very fast, only needs paint job.

    Sorry to hear of your Friend’s passing. That does look like a great car and a very good price. He did alot of quality work to the car – that’s clear to see in his owner’s thread.


    Good luck with the sale and hopefully the new owner might continue to post updates on 500E Board

    Sorry to hear the bad news about Raikku’s passing. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

    Even though he didn’t reveal his age, I thought he was a still a young man. Was he in an accident or something?

    He was only with us a short time. I remember a guy who built hot Porsche and BMW engines when joined us. He proudly talked and showed us some of his work and appeared to be a “Masterful Mechanic”.

    He got real enthusiastic about our E500E cars.

    He will be missed here.

    His car should be an easy sale. It looks to be in great condition.

    Thanks for Posting

    Oh, I'm very sad to hear about Raikku. I first heard of him on M5board many years ago. I was happy to see him here with a 500E and it was great to see him restore this car. I'm sure whoever buys it will be very happy. RIP Raikku.

    I'm a little behind on this news. I am really sorry to hear about Raikku's passing. I'm sure I met him at a Brooklands MB E500E meet a couple of years ago; I was there at the same time as Bil(al) (500e.org). If that's the case, he'll remember the meeting, too. If I've got it right, he'd just survived a fairly major car crash? A really nice guy.

    Anyhow, I do hope his car goes to a good home, and my condolences to his family at what must be a very difficult time for them.

    Sad to hear this. I spoke with Raikku many times over the phone when he first moved to England and while setting up his new shop. Really sound guy and a proper enthusiast! Unfortunately we never got to meet in person.

    RIP Raikku!

    Yes mate I do remember. One of those meets was fantastic, we had all of our E500E's parked up front and got told by the MB Museum to move them! Ha, they should have been proud of them parked out front. Anyway, it was great to meet him and he was very knowledgable. I actually tried contacting him recently to do some work on our 500E. We often spoke at length about cars and he was really gutted when his (this car being advertised) got rear ended. RIP mate, you will be missed!!!
