Immaculate 1995 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG with only 61K

This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an exceptional example of a genuine modern-day classic: the Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG. Only 5200 of these cars were produced between 1993 and 1996 – today, even fewer remain in such good, and unmolested condition.

On the road, this C36 performs just as it should – which is to be expected given the genuine low mileage and full Mercedes service history. The engine pulls very strongly from low revs, and suddenly erupts past 3800rpm, the delicious thrust being accompanied by a raw, metallic yowl. There are no nasty noises; smoke, or overheating. PLEASE NOTE: an external oil-leak has developed in the usual spot at the front of the head/block on the exhaust manifold side. I am willing to fix this before sale, or will reduce the price to allow for repair.

The ride and handling are equally good. When cruising, the car is quiet, supple, and yet controlled; but show it some twisties and it’s transformed, revealing a sharp, accurate sporting edge.

Cosmetically and mechanically, this C36 is first-class. It took me a long time to find one that hadn’t been thrashed, crashed and generally abused. All panels are straight; there’s no rust, and the paintwork is lustrous. The wheels are free of scratches and chips, and are shod with excellent Continental ContiSportContact 3 tyres. Brakes are perfect with plenty of meat left in the discs and pads.

Inside, all the (high spec) electrics work as they should, plus the leather seats, carpets, dash, headlining are virtually unworn and unmarked. Again, the result of obvious care, and very low mileage.

The car has over 9 months’ MOT, and 3 months’ tax remaining. It’s recently had a (very expensive) four-wheel alignment and needs nothing the than the work outlined above.
If I could keep the car I would, as I’ve wanted one since reading about one in Car magazine at launch. I’ll let the magazine’s Paul Horell explain:

“Why is this car so captivating? Something to do with the completeness of a Merc and the complete madness of AMG; the dead hand of the three-pointed star and the liveliness of a real sporting car. It’s a creative tension that means, after hundreds of non-stop, recreational miles, it’s still a wrench to turn the key anti-clockwise, climb out and walk away."

Now, I feel the same. Sadly I’m moving house, and need a horrible little oil-burner to handle an 80-mile commute. The car is available for viewing in either Beaconsfield (weekdays) or London (evenings and weekends). For more information, call Richard on 07983 507839.
