These are faster than the famous W124 E500's, plus - no auto leveling rear suspension to deal with, and one more gear in the transmission.
Everytime someone bids, it extends the time
The MB Classic Center says the two trunk badges ("C43" & "AMG") are still available.
Join the fun folks! I already have a couple of C43s, or I'd be bidding on this nice driver! The C43 is a classic muscle car, German style - big engine in small car - and is very stealthy in appearance, but has plenty of go power for road trips! The powertrain on these is quite reliable. Even then, AMG was hand-assembling their engines, they just didn't start with the signature plates until later years. Some attention might be needed at some point on the transmission shift conductor plate. Otherwise, one can expect many miles of dependable service from a W202 C43 series car, with proper maintenance.
Great to see a C43 come up. The first official AMG-Mercedes V8! The only AMG model available for sale in the USA in 1998! One of perhaps 550 sold that year - how many are left? They're so hard to find nowadays, especially a nice one, in a less common color. We'll be watching the outcome of this one closely!
The consummate "S" class Mercedes - W126. And such a pristine example. In such a cool color. Would love to add this one to my stable! A sure fire modern classic.
So rare a model, even when new. AMG choices in the USA in 1999 were the C43 AMG, and ... this car, the first year AMG E Class offered under the corporate umbrella. And to see one in such great condition is outstanding. Doing well now - and yet sure to continue in appreciation in the years to come.
