It’s been almost 20 years since AMG became fully integrated as an in-house tuning arm with Mercedes-Benz. Founded in 1967, the company got its start with racing engines and took its name from its founders last name initials, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, with the G coming from Großaspach, Aufrecht’s birthplace. In 1990, after years of popular tuning conversions, Mercedes and AMG went into partnership, with their first offspring coming shortly after the introduction of the new C class, C36 AMG.
Appearing hot on the heels of the recently introduced E36 BMW M3, comparisons were accepted. While the BMW was harder edged and offered a manual transmission, the C36 still packed a good punch with the enlarged M104 3.6 liter inline six. A bodykit helped aerodynamics while 17” AMG Monoblocks and revised suspension rounded out the packed. Inside was business as usual, save for a modified gauge cluster and some white leather accents on the steering wheel and shifter. Superseded by the more powerful C43 and C55 AMG models, the C36 has become a bit of an afterthought amongst high performance Mercedes sedans, but if you find a good one, it’s worth scoping out where the Mercedes-AMG marriage got its start. This C36 for sale in New Jersey is a nice, mint, low mileage example waiting to be enjoyed.

This is a rare Mercedes. In 1995 AMG was only a few years young at Mercedes. They were still a supertuner. This 1995 C36 was given to them and they reworked the whole car to make it into the rocket ship it is today. It is in stunning condition. It runs and drives as new.

Silver seems to be the more prevalent color for the C36, but I’ve always been a fan of black on this car. This C doesn’t have a lot of go fast bits on it to tell you what it’s on about, but if you look closely, you’ll spot the clues. Generally, prices for the C36 have mirrored it’s E36 M3 contemporary, but this example is about the highest priced I’ve seen in recent memory. I’m not sure the seller will pull $15,600. Ultimately, I’d suspect somewhere in the $11,000 to $14,000 range would probably get the deal done. You could get a C43 or C55 with higher mileage for similar cash, but if you want the original collaboration, this is your car.
