1989 Mercedes 300E Power
I've been eyeing up a Mercedes 300E in a local garage, and actually went for a test drive in it this morning. I have to say that it was fantastic for a 20 year old car - everything was in mint condition and it felt really quick.
But therein lies the problem: the dealer is claiming that it is the 275bhp model. However, after some extensive online research, I couldn't find any reference to one that had that much power from a 3.0L engine.
So my question is: Am I missing something and there really was one that had 375bhp, or is the dealer just pulling a fast one?
If it makes any difference, it is a 5-speed manual, and is apparently a Limited Edition (it had a very fancy-sounded name on the end, but I forget what it was. I'll update this post if I remember to look later).
Anyway, thanks in advance to anyone that can shed some light on this.
EDIT: I believe it was a Carat Duchatelet.
