1997 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG

Want to go fast but be stealth about it? Mercedes-Benz AMG models have always been a great way to have practicality mixed with insane amounts of power, but today’s models are a bit more telling on their outward appearance with regards to their mission. Their forebears were a bit more conservative, though. Witness this 1997 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG for sale in Florida with less than 60k miles on the clock. This year was the rarest for what was the first AMG collaboration after the tuner was brought in-house by Mercedes, with only 236 units produced.

Not much of a description to go on, but given this car is for sale at an automall that doesn’t specialize in Mercedes-Benzes, it’s not surprising. I’d be curious if this car was traded in on something, or was picked up at an auction. Regardless, this looks like it has the potential to be quite the forecourt find. Prices for the C36 AMG are still very reasonable and I think this is down to a couple factors. While they are rare, so few were produced and they were overshadowed by their more powerful V8 successor, the C43 AMG. Expect to pay somewhere in the range of $11,000 to $15,000 for a good example these days. Anything more will start to put you in the realm of later model, faster AMG metal.
