1995 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG

The Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG carried on the tradition of jamming a big engine into a modest package to produce big time performance. The more I delve into AMG history, however, I am intrigued by the C43’s predecessor, the C36 AMG. This was AMG’s first in-house collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. While it may be down on horsepower, it’s a rarer find than the V8 variants that succeeded it. We featured a final year C36 AMG earlier this month, but here is a low mileage black example for sale in Wisconsin.

Most C36s seem to be painted silver, but for me, I’d prefer the Vader effect we see here. With the AMG monoblocks, it looks both formal and menacing. It’s certainly a bit more toned down than the 190E Cosworths that preceded it, but still cuts quite a dash regardless. This one is priced quite realistically for such a good, low mileage piece. The earlier W202 AMG models haven’t yet cracked $15,000 in most cases, which is a price point where more serious metal starts coming in to play.

  1. I have to thank an MB dealership for helping me to decide to keep my E30 M3…
    In 95 I went to my local MB dealer because my family had grown..and I needed more room…
    so these 4 door screamer got my attention….and in 1995 it was in fact a screamer…
    I showed up in jeans & tee-shirt and I was not planning a visit…but was in my E30….
    not only do I wait 25/30 minutes for someone to speak with me…the Red C36 that they had on the floor, I was informed was 58k and the price was the price…no negotiation….
    and some other words to maybe a regular C is in your price point….LOL
