A fantastic example of the iconic E500, finished in Brilliant Silver with black leather trim. A German market car with full service history from new.
The collaboration between Porsche and Mercedes that created the 500E/E500 is a well-known tale. Porsche’s involvement honed the car into a true sports saloon while utilising the redundant 959 production line to build the car, largely by hand.
Devoid of spoilers or stripes or any clues as to its identity other than the slightly swollen arches, the 5-litre E-Class was an iron fist in a velvet glove; discreet, fast and expensive.
This E500 was delivered new in ’93 to Berlin and remaining in the city, serviced by its supplying dealer, until it came to the UK in ’97.
All original books and manuals come with the car and the service book details 21 services at Mercedes main dealers and marque specialists. The last major service was carried out in July 2020 at 232,898km.
There is also a folder of receipts that detail all the maintenance that has been carried out since ’97. HPI clear with certificate. Two keys and remote fobs.
In beautiful condition throughout – superb paintwork, unmarked wheels wearing matching Pirellis. The interior is in extremely good condition and benefits from an upgraded audio system incorporating a Becker Mexico CD head unit and subtle Jehnert door speaker pods.
The underside is very clean and free from corrosion. Similarly, the engine bay presents beautifully. It is evident this car has been extremely well cared for.
Fantastic to drive as these cars should be with perfect engine temperature and oil pressure readings.
It’s nice to find a such a well sorted and cared for E500 with a history from new. These are now well recognised as very special cars and a high water mark of engineering and design.
