1992 Mercedes 500E

1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E
104,000 Miles
326HP V8
354 ft-lbf

Very RARE Porsche built Mercedes. Each 500 E was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen during assembly---taking a full 18 days to complete each model. Of these, 1505 of the "super" sports sedans were imported into the USA between 1992-1994, or roughly 500 cars per year of importation. The 500 E had a dual camshaft 32-valve 4973 cm3 V8 engine naturally aspirating 326 hp (240 kW) and 480 N·m (354 ft·lbf), with the engine being derived from the 500 SL (R129) roadster. Sports car braking performance also came from SL components: front SL 500 300 mm disks with 4-piston calipers came installed on the 1992. The 500 E was only available as a four-seater, with the four leather seats supplied by Recaro (the fronts heated).

Called the "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" by the press, performance tests of the day yielded impressive results: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) times of 5.5 to 6.0 seconds and acceleration through the quarter-mile (0.4 km) in 14.1 seconds at 163 km/h (101 mph). The top speed was redline limited at 6,000 rpm to 250 km/h (~155 mph). Because of its look, limited numbers, hand-built construction, and unique pedigree, the 500 E is already considered a "classic", even within Mercedes-Benz.

SOME of the recent service includes:
catalytic converters replaced, new radiator, new thermostat, brakes, belt tensioner, seprpentine belt, Engine Mounts, Transmission Mounts, adjustable Koni shocks in front, H&R springs in back, shortened control arms, 18 inch AMG Wheels, New Tires, European Headlights, Boston Acoustics speakers and Alpine MP3, cooling system flush, transmission fluid change, oil change, oil filter, fuel filter, tansmission filter etc etc etc.

Car comes with many extra parts, and stock wheels.

Someone obviusly converted the headlights to euro style ones. So adding to Alax's question above

1. Do you have all the original headlight parts, I'm suspecting the drilled out cover plates, were the original ones that came with the original headlights.

2. what brand are the headlights that are installed?

The head lights are HELLA Euro head lights almost new. I have the original US headlights as well with the wipers and motors, I also have the valence panel for under the headlights that will fit the US head lights. Also I have the European valence that goes under the lights, and I have the Euro headlight wipers, and blades. So in total I have 3 pairs of trim pieces for the headlights (the ones on the car, euro, and US) all of which are painted to match the car.

Also have the original 500E rims (suspecting that to be the next question lol).

The car is in great shape, and looks amazing. I am looking for $16k but I am flexible.

I had the wiring harness looked at and the mechanic told me there is not need to replace it because it looks fine.

I am dropping the price to $14000

If anyone is interested let me know
Thanks!
