The Mercedes-Benz E-class coupe isn’t what you’d consider sporty, but it didn’t try a few tuners from having a crack at it when this car when it debuted in the late 1980s. While there were numerous Lorinser and AMG variants on the scene, the tuner Lotec is a much less known commodity, a firm based out of Kolbermoor, Germany that got its start with Formula V. Fast forward to the 1990s and they were busy cranking up the volume on production Mercedes-Benzes, along with the production of a supercar, the C1000 and numerous turbo kits for Ferraris. The company took time out, however, to tune this impressive 1992 300CE-24 that is for sale in Nuremberg.

The asking price for this 300CE is certainly the highest I’ve ever seen for a C124 coupe. No doubt a lot of money was spent on the refurbishment of this coupe and those tasty BBS wheels certainly do not come cheap. However, there’s one lurking problem I see with this car. For similar, if not less money, you could source an equally nice, low-mileage 500E. Granted, you could not have it in two-door form, but that would probably be of little consequence to potential buyers. If, however, you have to have a fast E-class coupe and the AMG treatment isn’t doing it for you, dare to be different with a Lotec like this.
