A walk-around and driving video has been provided by the seller below.
In 1991, Mercedes-Benz began production of the high-performance W124 variant with the M119-powered 500E. Seeing the demand for a V8-powered E-Class, Mercedes soon introduced the 400E in 1992. Using a smaller displacement M119 engine, the 400E provided customers with a mid-size luxury sedan that was powered by a larger engine than the typical six and four-cylinder variants offering more power and torque. In 1994, Mercedes changed their naming scheme badging the car as an E420 such as this example. Finished in a desirable Spruce Green Metallic over beige leather, this E420 will make for a fun and unique daily driver for its lucky new owner.
