Anyone know anything about the 500E? How rare are they? I bet they scream performance!

Limited production (2400 per year?), co-produced with Porsche, first car to use a data bus for engine, suspension and braking management. 32 valve, 5.0L V-8 in a heavlily chassis modified 300E. While rare, they are not unobtainable. The AMG Hammer is much more rare, as is the "Baby Hammer" AMG 3.2 190E.

There are 16 of them on Autotrader including a tuned 6.0L version and about another 5 or so on Cars.com Check the classifieds of other forums as well. Search either 500E or E500.

Hi,

The 500E - Porsche Built in thier factory, same production line as the Porsche 959. Back in 2003 I had a W124 1995 E 280 (still have) and my brother-in-law purchased a Black 1991 500E off eBay. It was a German Import, but it was mean, brutal, super fast and super smooth. Performs effortlessly at 240km/h on the Highway/Motorway and will launch you from 0-60 in 5.6secs. Have a look at http://www.e500.org for full review and photos of my 1993 E500 I bought early 2004. Good Luck in your search for one, and if you can go for Low Miles and possibly 040 "FLAT BLACK" colour if you can find one it's the most desirable in a 500E.

Regards,
