This 1995 Mercedes-Benz E500 Limited is reportedly one of 120 Limited models produced for the 1995 model year and was originally ordered via the Reutlingen branch of Mercedes-Benz in December 1994. This European-market example reportedly spent time in Japan prior to its importation to Dubai in 2019. The car is one of 951 Limited models produced throughout all model years and is finished in Sapphire Black (009) over special two-tone Gray and Black (288) leather. Power is provided by a 5.0-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Features include an electric sunroof, automatic climate control, heated power-adjustable front seats with memory function, a cassette stereo, and 17″ Evo wheels. This E500 Limited shows just under 99k kilometers (~61k miles) and is now offered by the seller in Dubai with manufacturer’s literature, original tool roll, partial service records and a clean UAE title.
The E500 was designed and built in collaboration with Porsche, and features widened front and rear fenders with unique bumpers. This example is finished in Sapphire Black (009) paint which was offered exclusively on Limited models. Additional features include clear turn signal lenses and side marker lamps, a power antenna, and a power tilting and sliding steel sunroof.
The 17″ Evo wheels were equipped from the factory for Limited specs and are wrapped in 245/45 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires showing 2021 date codes. The E500 featured a wider track and a lower stance compared to other W124 models, while the front disc brakes were shared with the contemporary R129 SL600.
The car is trimmed in Black leather with Gray-patterned inserts on the Recaro seats and door panels which is a unique combination for Limited specs. Amenities include heated and power-adjustable front sport seats with memory function and perforated bolster inserts, Birdseye maple wood trim, cruise control, automatic climate control, dual front airbags, a factory cassette stereo, and Mercedes-Benz-stamped stainless-steel door sills.
A two-toned leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 260-km/h speedometer and a tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline and an inset clock. Additional gauges include coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure, along with an LCD external thermometer. The six-digit odometer shows 99k kilometers (~61k miles), approximately 1,500 kilometers of which were added by the selling dealer.
The 5.0-liter M119 V8 features dual overhead camshafts and produced 322 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.
