    1994 Mercedes-Benz 500E Limited
    No reserve


    British title
    Chassis no. WDB1240361C2137896

    - The last evolution of the E500
    - Only 500 built
    - Porsche-built performance Mercedes
    - No Reserve

    The Mercedes 500 E was developed by Porsche who were also given the job of assembling the car in Zuffenhausen, as Mercedes did not have the capacity available in Stuttgart. The bodies were painted in Sindelfingen, the engines, gearboxes and suspensions were built in Untertürkheim and the whole was assembled at Porsche in Zuffenhausen, where Porsche had spare capacity at the time.
    Designed as a performance version of the E-class, it was fitted with the V8 from the 500SL and given 326 hp and a limited top speed of 250 km/h. Its performance was breath-taking: 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. The face lifted E500´s final edition was produced at 500 units and called "limited" Its interior differed from the previous model. It included standard Onyx coloured wood and optional red, green or grey coloured leather for the centre part of the seats.
    This particular car was delivered new to Leipzig in December 1994, to a dealer who then sold it in Japan to a meticulous owner who looked after it very well, according to the car´s service book.
    It was then re-imported in 2016 in the UK where it remained until spring 2017 when it returned to its home country, Germany.
    This represents a rare opportunity to acquire the very last most developed of the ultimate Mercedes/Porsche metisse.

    I'll be shocked if this doesn't pop back up for sale at twice the price. Perhaps triple.

    I always thought that cars which go to Japan have two issues (1) Questionable maintenance and (2) Questionable mileage

    Also, I noticed the AMG shifter. AMG had no part in the manufacturing of this, right?

    This car’s data card doesn’t have the magic AMG code. Though it has the Limited code.

    Robert, you are correct, AMG had nothing to do with the Limiteds. That's an aftermarket add-on, which actually reduces value a bit, vs the original shift knob (IMO). The car is a legit code 958 but that's all, just one of 900+ (not 500) Limiteds.

    Hey guys,

    I did not see a thread on this. My brother sent me this German he found while browsing.

    Frabe: Special paint - Sapphire Black Mica (009 U) Roser leather interior: black / gray, The last evolution of the E500, only 500 built, built by Porsche Performance Mercedes, The Mercedes 500 E was developed by Porsche, who also had the task to assemble the car in Zuffenhausen, because Mercedes in Stuttgart did not have the available capacity. The bodies were painted in Sindelfingen, the engines, gearboxes and suspensions were built in Untertürkheim and assembled at Porsche in Zuffenhausen, where Porsche had spare capacity at that time. Of the 500 produced copies, Mercedes has received 12 copies with an E60 design and a 6.0-liter displacement of 381 hp. This makes them the most limited of the limiteds. No one was exported to North America. Discreet striking touches determined the Limited; It was available in two exterior colors: Sapphire Black or Diamond Silver. A more avant-garde Roser leather interior that would have made Andy Warhol proud was used. Almost like an airbrush look, the Recaro center of the seat and the door card offered a striking refraction pattern with matching steering wheel sections, shifter and vehicle documentation folder. Love it or hate it, there was no doubt that the weak point that fits the Limited, its effect was something to see. Black cars got either gray or green. The dark gray exterior parts that underline the center were pretty attractive, with a smart coolness. Designed as a performance version of the E-Class, he was equipped with the V8 of the 500SL and received 326 hp and a limited top speed of 250 km / h. The performance was breathtaking: 0 to 100 km / h in 5.6 seconds. The last edition of the E500 with facelifting was produced with 500 units and called "limited". Its interior was different from the previous model. It contained standard onyx wood and optional red, green or gray leather for the middle part of the seats. The E500 Limited was a "limited" model production of the E500 between 1994-1995. All E500 Limited have been completely redone.

As standard, Mercedes-Benz stamped stainless steel door sill protectors were also delivered. They had two-tone Sportline steering wheels. Passenger and driver airbags along with the fully upright body and fairing as standard. They are considered the most desirable of the E500 series. This particular car was redelivered to Leipzig in December 1994, to a dealer who sold it to a careful owner in Japan, who cared very well, according to the service book of the car. In 2016, it was re-imported into the UK, where it remained until the spring of 2017, when it returned to its home country of Germany.
