2000 Mercedes-Benz E55 for sale

The W210 Mercedes E-Class represents one of the first times I started seeing M-B as capable of the bruce I knew so well from their Bavarian counterparts.  The sport-edition E430 certainly looked the part with some slick 5 spokes and near-AMG body kit, but the real beast of the litter- subtly aggressive on the outside and packing tire-roasting torque on the inside- was the E55.  Now, some may scoff at its 349hp, 5.4L V8, but realize that we live in the most golden age of horsepower wars. Though it even gave up some power to its contemporary M5, the tides were reversed when it came to torque, making this a true muscle car from the great Hammer tradition.

This one comes in clean silver, showing off the well-shaped hood and clean lines front to back.  It has 133k miles and a less-than-descriptive listing so it could use a thorough pre-sale inspection, but it looks to be in good condition inside and out and is priced at a mere $10,000.  For 10 grand, you’ve got your own German ape-in-a-business suit, ready to spin those AMG monoblocks and look classy doing it.

1990 Audi V8 Quattro for Sale

A very low-mileage Audi V8 Quattro is up on eBay with 20 days left at a Buy-It-Now or Best Offer price of $6500.  This was the predecessor to the A8, offering a 3.6L 247hp V8.  Weak by today’s standards, but not too shabby in 1990.  It was also the only full-size sedan with AWD at time and came with a galvanized body, so rust shouldn’t be a problem.

I think the big selling point here is the extremely low 41k miles.   It’s no Ur-S4 or S6, but $6500 for a fun, big AWD sedan is not too bad at all.
