This 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300E-24v 3.4 AMG is finished in Blue-Black Metallic (199) paint over Black (071) fabric with plaid fabric inserts on the seats and door cards. This example features a 5-speed manual getrag transmission with ASD and was delivered new at the Wuerzburg Branch in Germany before being mechanically and cosmetically overhauled by then-independent tuning house AMG in Affalterbach. As per the datacard, this particular 300E displays the “990 AMG Version- Complete Vehicle” designation which validates the modifications were done by AMG in period. By 1992, AMG was partially acquired by Mercedes-Benz and these AMG option codes were able to be programmed by datacard with the VIN. Bodywork is shared with the 6.0L V8-powered Hammer, but is instead powered by a heavily-modified, bored, cammed and stroked version of the standard M104 inline-six. This completely original, manual pre-merger AMG sedan currently resides in Germany and the 280 km/h AMG gauge cluster presently shows 130,500 kilometers (~81k miles) from new.
The body is finished in Blue-Black Metallic (199) paint and was modified by AMG with period correct modifications featuring sculpted front and rear bumpers, fog lights, side skirts, rolled wheel arches, AMG Aero I wheels, and a rear ducktail spoiler. The bumpers and side skirts are all stamped with HWA part numbers and documented in the gallery below. Monochrome, color-matched paint is extended below the belt line to all lower cladding and AMG panels from Affalterbach. The seller reports that the area around the rear taillights has been touched up; with only slightly higher paint meter values being indicated in that area.
