This 500E is a rare piece of German automotive history Back in the early 1990’s when Porsche was trying its best to go broke the guys a Mercedes steeped in and had them do the heavy lifting and had them engineer then assemble the V8 E500. This was an expensive endeavor in 1993 and these cars listed for over $80,000 here in the U.S., a huge sum! This car has traveled only 34,000 miles since delivery and is in excellent condition. The story gets even better in 1998 when the owner decided to have Renntech work there magic on it with over $109,000 worth of upgrades. The 5.0-liter engine was upgraded to a 6.0,
the transmission was also reworked for 1st gear starting and the suspension, Brakes (Renntech’s Alcon)and BBS wheels all added. These upgrades far surpassed anyone else at the time and made the AMG “Hammer” driver lose sleep. Truly a wolf in sheep clothing.
