2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate

Over the past month I checked out a few W124 Mercedes-Benz Estates and from the looks of it, they are still in pretty high demand judging by their price tags. I can see why as those wagons were and still are some of the best all-encompassing packages you could buy. Some might argue that the W123 Estate was better and I see their points, but the newest one of those is now 33 years-old and lack things like airbags as well as other modern safety features. What is interesting is that the car that replaced the W124 Estate, the W210, kind of flew under the radar when it came to fans of wagons. Whether it be its elongated looks or lack of old school Mercedes feel, people aren’t exactly eager to snatch these things up. It doesn’t mean that they are bad cars or anything, but the passion is just a little lacking compared to the W123 and W124. Today’s car, a 2001 E320 Estate up for bid in Oregon, is painted in the rare Aragonite Blue Metallic and is actually quite nice. Does that mean anyone will be clamoring for it?

2002 Mercedes-Benz E320 with 18,200 miles

Fairly often I feature special cars that have low miles on them. That’s to be expected because sometimes when people buy a car that isn’t run-of-the-mill, they don’t use it as a daily driver and try to keep the miles low. In turn, that theoretically should keep the value high when it comes to sell or maybe just to have the satisfaction of having a low mileage car. What I don’t see too often are cars that are ordinary in every way and meant to be used and thrown away that have really low miles on them. You can see where I’m going with this.

What I have today is a 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320 up for sale in Virginia with just 18,200 miles on it. This W210 is as bland and disposable as modern Mercedes come and this car doesn’t even have any special options or unique features. In fact, this E320 doesn’t even have heated seats. It’s painted in a bland color with a bland interior that blends in with the crowd with the best of them. You’d think the 18,200 miles would mean this car is pristine, but thanks to some typical W210 problems, time waits for no one. Not even cars that sit in garages for 15 years.

Supercharged 2000 Mercedes-Benz E320 Limousine

I check out a fair share of limousines with some of them being pretty cool and some being done maybe not so well. For better or worse, each one of them has their own unique features and characteristics. Today’s limo, a 2000 Mercedes-Benz E320 built by Binz, has its own setup that I haven’t seen before and even has a little surprise under the hood. Although the title might have given away the surprise though.

Tuner Tuesday: 2001 Mercedes-Benz C320 Brabus C3.8S

One thing that I always admired about Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus is that they weren’t afraid to touch anything. Oldnew, big, and small, they aren’t afraid to put their touches on any product to roll out of Untertürkheim. Today’s car is one of those where I question was it even worth it to spend a ton of money into making something that atleast right now, isn’t all that desirable. This is a 2003 C320 that was converted by Brabus into what they call a C3.8S. As you might have guessed, they took the 3.2 liter M112 V6 and transformed it into a 3.8 liter making around 300 horsepower to the rear wheels. In typical Brabus fashion, the added front and rear bumpers, a new exhaust, some wheels and finished it all off with some interior touches that differed from the standard W203 offering. All of this time and money left you with a 0-60 time of 6.8 seconds. Yeah, not that impressive.

2006 Mercedes-Benz S350

Everyone once in a while one of my favorite mystery cars pops up for sale again. That mystery being why in the world Mercedes-Benz brought these for sale in North America. The car I am talking about is the 2006 S350. I’ve covered this odd ball over year ago but incase you are new or just don’t know the story with this car, let me explain.

In 2006, the last year for the W220 in North America, Mercedes-Benz sold the S350 alongside the S430, S500, S55 AMG, S600 and S65 AMG. This would be totally normal except the S350 was a short wheelbase car that was over five inches shorter than the rest of the model lineup. It was also the only one with the V6. These cars weren’t highly optioned at all and as a result, were nearly $10,000 cheaper than the 430 and $20,000 cheaper than the 500. But why did Mercedes bother to bring over the S350 for only one year? My only guess is they had an abundance of them scheduled for production and needed to rid themselves of these cars while planning the W221 production to start later that year. But that can’t be it, right? Mercedes probably has an entire building full of production planners who make sure things like this don’t happen. They are German, after all.

2003 Mercedes-Benz C320 SportCoupé

Remember when you could take people at their word? Yeah, me either. But you get my point. The reason I bring this up is because when someone tells you something about a car you hope you can take their word at it, but ultimately it is your responsibility to do your due diligence. Enter this 2003 Mercedes-Benz C320 SportCoupé.

As you might have noticed, this W203 is far from a stock car with quite a bit of modifications done to it. It has a wing, some 19 inch BBS wheels, a DTM-inspired splitter, a carbon fiber hood and of course some special paint. Inside, the seats have been redone with Mercedes logos stitched in them and if my eyes are correct, an original Xbox gaming system in the passenger foot well. At first glance, I thought it was just a modified car from a private owner. Then I read the eBay description and saw a story with the words ”McLaren” in it. Needless to say, my eyes lit up and I became very excited. Could this car really be associated with the F1 great? Then a few moments later I had to ask myself ”Why did McLaren want an Xbox in a C320 SportCoupé?”

2000 Mercedes-Benz E320 ‘Pickup Truck’

Oh, goody. It is tough to put into words how excited how I am for this one today. As you might have noticed, this is a 2000 Mercedes-Benz E320 ”Pickup Truck”. This job was done by the custom builders at Binz, a company in Germany that produces work on par with that of the Mercedes-Benz factory. I’ve actually looked at one of their creations before, but none as clean at this one today. What is interesting is that this W210 started life as a E320 estate and then was converted to the pickup. The amazing thing is that Binz just didn’t slap a bed on this thing and call it a day, they actually went above and beyond on every single detail. Despite being built in Germany, this thing is actually for sale on US soil in California. So let us dig into this sedan with some extra cargo capacity.

1998 Mercedes-Benz E320 Wagon

Earlier this week I looked at a W124 wagon that I thought was a great buy for both the short and long term. Today is another Mercedes wagon and the successor of the W124 — the W210. The W210 wagon still sold reasonably well compared to the legendary W123 and W124 thanks to the introduction of an all new 4matic system and well,  it’s a Mercedes wagon. This E320 wagon for sale in New York offers a ton of value for very little money and even better, it’s in a rare color.

2006 Mercedes-Benz S350

3501

Another week usually means another S-Class from me. Today is no different with a 2006 S … 350? Wait, they made a S350? For the United States? Yes, they did and that’s what we have here today for sale in Florida. So this is just a regular S-Class with a V6, right? Not quite. So lets take a look at what makes this W220 so different.
