This one has made its way onto BaT
Probably a few months too late to take advantage of the crackpipe bidding that we witnessed on that venue over the summer.
1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E
This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic over Anthracite leather and powered by a 5.0L V8 mated with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The car is equipped with AMG wheels and a RENNtech air box, ECU chip, and front brake calipers. This W124 shows 127k miles and is offered by the selling dealer with the factory wheels and brake calipers, service records, a stamped maintenance booklet, a clean Carfax report, and a Maine title.
The 500E was assembled by Porsche and fitted with a special front air dam, flared fenders, and side skirts. This example is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic with grey lower body cladding, and the seller notes areas of crazing in the clear coat. The 500E featured a wider track and lower ride height than other W124 models. This example wears AMG 17″ 5-spoke wheels mounted with Firestone Firehawk tires.
The interior is finished in
Anthracite black leather and features heated front seats with memory function on the driver’s side as well as an electrically-operated rear shade. A factory Becker cassette deck remains installed in the dash. The 6-digit odometer shows approximately 127k miles. The 5.0L M119 V8 is paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission and was rated at 322 horsepower with 354 lb-ft of torque in stock form. This example has been modified with a RENNtech E-Prom performance chip and air box, and the factory parts are included in the sale. The selling dealer notes that the wiring harness has not been replaced. Recent service included replacement of the illumination module and a new distributor cap and rotor. Additional underbody photos can be seen in the gallery below. RENNtech front brake calipers replace the factory units.
The Carfax report list no accidents or other damage and shows Maine registrations from new through 2014, with no further entries after that point. The factory wheels and brake calipers, service records, RENNtech parts receipts, and a stamped maintenance booklet are included in the sale.
