The owner states that this AMG Hammer is the ‘real deal’, which is to say it has the 6.0L with 4 valve heads. This translates to 375hp and 5 second zero to sixty times — in 1987! That beat the Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari 288 GTO, and the Porsche 911 Turbo in top speed!

I found some cool articles about the 300E AMG Hammer while researching the car, but this might be the most telling quote about how expensive this car was in 87 (VWVortex):
The Hammer’s US price of $167,000 in 1987 is equal to about $311,882 today (6/08). It was an insane amount of money in 1987 when you could buy a Testarossa for $134,000 or a Countach for $138,000. And a 911 Turbo would set you back a measly $69,000.
The buy-it-now price on this car, with only 19k miles, is $65k. Sounds like a bargain suddenly!
