This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E shows registration history in New jersey for a year and Florida from 1993 through the present. The current owner and seller purchased the car in early 2016 with 107k miles on the odometer. The car is finished in Black Pearl Metallic (199U) over Grey Leather (278) and powered by a 5.0-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a factory sunroof, heated and power-adjustable front seats, automatic climate control, 17” AMG Aero I wheels, a three-piece spoiler, RENNtech exhaust, and a MOMO steering wheel. Now with 190k miles shown (TMU), this 500E is offered as a running and driving project showing thorough previous servicing, a factory tool kit, an included Carfax report, and a clean Florida title.
The car is finished in Black Pearl Metallic (199U) with matching lower body cladding as a result of at least one prior repaint. Various paint surfaces show scratches, fading, and clear coat failure with detailed photos shown in the gallery. Equipment includes US-spec headlights and fender lights, fog lights, headlight wipers, a sunroof, and an automatic antenna. The 500E comes fitted with flared front and rear fenders along with widened bumpers to match compared to a standard W124. In addition to the aforementioned paint defects, damage to the front and rear bumpers can be seen in addition to heavy rock chips on the nose, flaking paint at the rear fenders, and mismatched panels.
Original AMG Aero I wheels are mounted and wear Dunlop tires up front and Federal tires in the rear. The wheel faces show various flaws including scratches, flaking, and bubbling paint. The 500E featured Porsche-tuned suspension with a lower ride height than contemporary standard W124 models and also required a wider track for better handling.
The cabin features factory Recaro seats upholstered in Grey Leather (278) with matching headrests, door cards, and armrests. Burl wood trim accents the dashboard, center stack in the front and rear, and door panels. Equipment includes power-adjustable and heated front seats, an electric rear roller blind, automatic climate control, and an aftermarket head unit featuring auxiliary input. Various tears and cracks can be seen across all leather surfaces and the veneer shows cracking and fading. The original headliner has been replaced with alcantara. The rear roller blind is noted to be inoperable and the center vents show missing slats.
The original four-spoke steering wheel has been replaced with a MOMO steering wheel. It features a thicker diameter rim and an AMG badge at the center. The wheel fronts VDO instrumentation that includes a 160mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and gauges for coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure. The six-digit odometer shows 190k miles with a rollback mentioned on the Carfax from prior ownership.
The 5.0-liter DOHC M119 V8 was factory rated at 322 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. It’s noted by the seller the engine and drivetrain operate as intended and partial records will be included in the sale.
The Carfax reports one damage report in 2010 prior to the owner's acquisition. This 500E is offered as a running and driving project showing thorough previous servicing, a factory tool kit, an included Carfax report, and a clean Florida title.
