1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E

For a while, I thought the 500E/E500 wasn’t getting its fair shake in the collector market but it seems the tide is turning a bit. Traditionally it’s been the Mercedes coupes and convertibles that bring the big sums, and for a while, you could snag one of these hot rod E classes for reasonable sums. The window for such a deal seems to be closing, but this 500E for sale in California is on offer at no reserve, giving the potential for someone to get a bargain.

Casey’s Cars Inc. is proud to offer this 4 owner 1992 500E Sedan. From 1990 to 1994 (model years 19911994), Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500E. The 500 E was created in close cooperation with Porsche each 500E was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche’s Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany during assembly taking a full 18 days to complete each model. Design began in 1989 and into 1991. Called ‘500E’ through model year 1993, for model year 1994 it was face-lifted along with the rest of the range and renamed to ‘E500.’

The 500E had a naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 engine derived from the 500 SL roadster. Sports car braking performance also came from SL components front SL500 300 mm disks with 4-piston calipers came installed on the 1992 and early 1993 cars. The later 1993, and all 1994 cars came with the upgraded 320 mm set taken from the 600SL. Rear brakes on all years were 278 mm brakes from the 500 SL. In the USA, the 500E came fully equipped. The 500E was only with four seats in left hand drive, with the four leather seats supplied by Recaro (the fronts heated). Called the “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” by the press, performance tests of the day yielded impressive results 0100 kmh (062 mph) times of 5.5 to 6.0 seconds and acceleration through the quarter-mile (0.4 km) in 14.1 seconds at 163 kmh (101 mph).

This particular 500E looks good for the mileage. While the paint has suffered a bit of oxidation, there appears to be little pitting around the flared front fenders where this normally occurs. The interior looks tidy as well, with a nice patina on the surfaces. For someone looking for a driver they can enjoy, this would be one to check out, especially at no reserve.

  1. Does the duck-tape on the driver’s seat bolster qualify as nice patina? This car is discussed in further detail here:

  2. I wish every enthusiast car model had a forum like the E500 board. That is a seriously nice bunch of guys who do crazy good research and can tell you the history on just about any E500 when it comes up for sale.
