1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG with 28k miles

$_57 (1)

For fourteen years, my mom has been driving the same 2000 Mercedes-Benz C280. For those not keeping track, this was the last year for the W202 C-class, before the W203 was introduced and everyone started bemoaning the build quality of the next generation Mercedes. We’ve all spent so many years with this car that it’s become an integral part of the family. Every time I step back into it, it reminds me why I have a lot of disdain for newer vehicles. The W202 wasn’t loaded down with a lot of complex technology and wasn’t pretending to be something it wasn’t.

However, in 1998, AMG turned the performance dial up to 11 when they slotted a 4.3 liter V8 under the hood cranking out 306 hp. This was a car that followed in the footsteps of the old Detroit muscle car formula of taking the smallest car in the range and putting a huge engine in it. With exception of the W203 C32 AMG, we’ve seen a succession of V8 engined C-classes over the past 15 years or so from those nutters in Affalterbach, Germany. If you missed your chance on a new C43 AMG, this 1998 example for sale in Virginia could be the closest you might get to one in a while.

1993 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 Limited Edition – REVISIT

The low mileage Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 Limited Edition we featured back in September is back up for sale, with the Buy It Now price lowered by $1,000. This could be the lowest mileage 1993 Limited Edition out there, but is the ask still too high for a four cylinder W201?

1988 BMW 528e

While Enthusiast Automotive Group always has plenty of drool-inducing eye candy available, it’s cars like this 528 that catch my eye. As a lower-end model, the 528e was used for its efficiency and road-manners, making it an unlikely target for preservation. That’s why this 1988 with under 50,000 miles is so unusual, considering most of these are used up and retired, if not junked entirely. Someone loved this car, and it shows – the extensive paperwork, accident-free history and original details like floor mats and the factory sound system are all evidence that the previous owner recognized what a good car they had, and saw no need to modify it for drifting events or paint it flat-black in pursuit of being “unique.”

Low-mileage but nicht langsam: BMW E39 M5 duo

The low mileage E28 BMW M5 that Nate wrote up last week got me thinking again about what kind of cars would fill out my collection if I struck it rich. Certainly it would be an M5, but which one? As sharp as the original M5 is, I’m still distracted every time I come across an E39 M5 in my travels. Much like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this is the sports saloon that is just right for me. It straddles the line nicely between modern and classic, packs a punch with the V8/6-speed manual combination and has just the right amount of aggression in an almost perfect sized package. Apparently I’m not the only one who finds this car to be “just right” given the values we’ve seen for these Munich monsters.

Both E39 M5s we’ll look at today are 2003 examples, the first being this sinister looking black example for sale in Maryland with just under 30,000 miles on the clock.

1977 Mercedes-Benz 350SLC 4-speed Euro-Spec – REVISIT

After several relistings since I initially wrote it up back in May, this 350SLC is back up on the auction block. There was an claim that some of the 350SLC cars came badged as 450SLCs, making this car appear original, though I can’t find any proof of that – does anyone know better? Miles are very low, condition appears good and this would certainly be a fun package that would last – but the asking price is fairly steep at $19,000. What do you think this car is worth?
