Between 1991 and 1994, Mercedes imported just over 1,500 500E’s to the United States, and this particular example is one of the cleanest and most well documented one’s that is currently available for sale. Finished in a beautiful Beryllgruen Metallic Green over Tan Leather interior, this 500E is truly something to behold in person and has been kept in true investment-grade condition throughout it’s life.
Called the "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" by the press, the performance figures of the day yielded impressive results. The 500E features a 5.0L V8 churning out over 325HP and 354LB torque which propelled the car to 60 in just under 5.5 seconds. The legendary status of the 500E was first cemented during the very beginning of its life during its inception. It was co-developed in close relation with Porsche - and during development, each 500E would take trips back and forth between the Mercedes' plant in Sindelfingen and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen just to complete assembly.
For all of the incredible engineering and technology that was poured into the 500E, we are pleased to say that our example comes with pages upon pages of service records and documentation dating back all the way to 2003 that highlight just how well it has been taken care of throughout the years by its owner, including a fresh service as recent as June of 2020 that included: Spark Plugs, Ignition Wires, Valve Cover Gasket, Camshaft Seal, Engine Mounts, as well as an Ignition Control Unit just to name a few - totaling out to over $8,300. A minor detail which even further highlights the care that this car has received by its previous owner can be shown in the fantastic condition of the interior, down to the fact that the original Mercedes AC still blows ice cold. As an added bonus, there is also a packet of many original reviews by journalists from the original release from the early 1990’s, which go into even more tremendous detail of just how phenomenal of a car the 500E is.
While sport sedans of today are continuing to evolve and do a fantastic job of encapsulating luxury and performance, their very roots can be traced back to the 500E, basically being the car that was the archetype of all the modern German V8 sedans from the big three. While we certainly will be sad to see it go, we know that it will be a very welcome addition to the collector or enthusiast alike!
