Thanks everyone for looking, I'll leave the pics up if anyone wants to see
Very very rare car!
European market imported car only one of a few in the US. Also known as "The Four-Door Porsche" this was a one time only collaboration between Mercedes Benz and Porsche to build the ultimate factory sports sedan to dominate the Autobahn, and they did. Considered to be "perhaps the most desirable and collectible Mercedes of the last 20 years."

1993 Mercedes-Benz 500E (Late 1991 build)
- Brilliant Silver Metallic
- Black Recaro Leather Interior
- 119,000 Miles (less than 8k per year)
- 322hp 5.0 Liter V8
- 4 Speed Automatic
- 16" x 8" Forged Aluminum Wheels - Nearly new Goodyear Eagle GS-H tires
- Slide and Tilt Sunroof
This car is always kept covered in the factory fitted genuine car cover. Recently completely rebuilt the transmission to provide the new owner with a highly reliable driving experience for another 116k miles. Also replaced the original headliner with a new genuine Mercedes headliner (over $500 part), the inside of this car looks as new as it did when it rolled off the line in Stuttgart.
This also being a European market model it comes with the manual HVAC climate controls, but was fitted with US Spec 500E headlights for federalization. It was not optioned with headlight washers or heated seats when ordered in Europe. The car was originally sent to Belgium but was purchased by G&K Automotive for import (G&K Automotive Conversion, Inc.
) and conversion and was sold in 1993 and registered as a 1993 model.
I have kept this car as close to stock as possible, maintaining it's heritage and rarity has been a priority for me. I've used this as my daily driver for my short three-mile commute to work and fun weekend drives, I've done everything I can to it to make it a reliable daily driver as it is now, and only now do I feel secure selling it knowing it's in great running shape. The paint is a little tired in spots but still shines when waxed up, a serious detailing/buffing would solve most, if not all of the scuffs. The only other issues are strictly cosmetic, the expected black-chrome trim has faded a into that bronze color and the rubber gaskets around the side-view mirrors are a little cracked but still seal to the car just fine. There is a small nickel-size ding on the front drivers side fender that could be pulled out with the right gear and another nickel-size ding below the rear license plate, both have been there since I purchased the car so I'm not sure of their origin but both are very minor flaws on an otherwise outstanding car.
I know the biggest problem for me is my location, so I've complied a few common shipping location costs with ship dates for the first week of September (shipping rates do change depending on date).
Long Beach/Oakland/Seattle - $1072.00
Dallas - $1934
Detroit - $2001
Atlanta - $1990
Boston - $2074
