Back in the days the W210 Mercedes-Benz E-Class production, there was a model produced that didn’t exactly get all the headlines or fanfare, and that was the E430 Sport. For the 2000 through 2002 model years, you could option a E430 with the E55 AMG body kit. That meant much more aggressive bumpers, some cool side skirts, and circle fog lights that were unique to the E55. While all this was cool, Mercedes was smart enough not to offer the smoke taillights nor the signature 18″ AMG Monoblock wheels, as you had to settle for 17″ wheels. However, source a set of the Monoblocks, and you have a faux E55 to the untrained eye. Wouldn’t you know it, this is exactly what we have here with this 2000 up for sale in Massachusetts that has just 42,000 miles. I don’t want to spoil the party early, but this one might have some issues.

Like mentioned, if you didn’t know any better, you’d swear this was an E55. The seller really isn’t fooling anyone by putting the AMG badge on the rear and keeping the E430 as well, but who knows. What I want to talk about is maybe what we don’t know about this car. As nice as it looks, eBay’s free AutoCheck report shows two accidents, as well as “total loss” entry in 2020. Does the seller mention any of this? Of course not. Just a couple generic sentences like this classic “Excellent condition,runs and drives us a new car.” and don’t forget the “Serious buyers only!” line.
The asking price for this? $14,500. I don’t need to tell you can still buy a real E55 AMG in average condition for that kind of money. The sad part is that if it didn’t have the checkered past it probably would be worth that given the miles, but not with the unknown accidents and potential bad title. Not to mention no one will trust this seller given they casually forgot to disclose this. Apparently, it was more important to say: “This 2000 Mercedes-Benz E is an original.” Another day, another disappointment.
