    1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 500E

    The 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E is a collector's dream! Built in collaboration with Porsche to make the ultimate W124 hot rod, the 500E boasts a 326HP V8 combined with braking borrowed from the SL and the comfort & refinement of a proper E-class.

    The unique composition of this 500 E carries elements from the Mercedes-Benz SL family, including the naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 engine (0-62 mph between 5.5 and 6 seconds) and upgraded brakes and calipers. The 500 E’s impressive styling is showcased through flared fenders, wider and lower profile, front air dam and wider tire specifications. Mercedes-Benz worked exclusively with Porsche to hand-build this high performance model. The 500 E was delivered to owners fully equipped with Recaro leather seats and front seat heaters, and with only 2 options available: CD Changer and Integrated Cellular Telephone. Only 1,528 units were imported into the United States between 1991 and 1994, making the 500 E a very limited production model.

    This particular 500 E is covered in Black Pearl Metallic exterior paint over a Grey leather interior it is a one owner vehicle with documented service records (click here), clean CarFax (click here) and with just over 31,000 original miles it is a rare find.

    Highly optimistic on price. $30-40K too optimistic.

    I think you didn't see the odometer, Gerry. The instrument cluster alone is worth $30-$40k. The rest of the car just cost a little more.

    The seller may be channeling a little Enzo here as he is attributed to the quote, "When you buy a Ferrari, you are paying for the engine. The rest you get for free"

    Just replace "a Ferrari" with "this Mercedes" and "engine" with "odometer" and you're there!

    I have no prior record of this car in my detailed database, unfortunately.

    For those of you who love to flaunt the 500E's Porsche heritage (because we all know that Porsche didn't actually make the E500 facelift cars), there's a new idea for you on the front doors ....a nice and very blatant one that anyone who sees it will instantly grok .... in addition to Porsche license plate frames, Porsche badges, and so forth.

    It always amazes me when these dealers think that merely having a low-miles car gives them an automatic "bird in hand" that then can double the market-correct asking price for.

    Again, the usual $5K of deferred maintenance applies here, mostly for aged and under-used rubber and soft parts. Good chunk of that deferred maintenance is peeling those ridiculous stickers off of the front doors and buffing the adhesive off the paint.

    All that said, this is a heck of a nice car, if it can be bought for a correct price. Could be a $50K car, but IMHO it's hard to see it going realistically for much above that. Unless the seller finds a buyer who just doesn't care....and they are certainly out there. Patience game, methinks.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Yea, I agree, that's pretty sweet! I bet the chicks really dig it...more so than the gray door switches:

    Gray door switches would significantly bump up the value of this car....perhaps almost to asking price.
