I love the fact that the only way to get 4MATIC all-wheel-drive on the W210 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG was to buy it in wagon form. Not just any wagon, as some were still rear-wheel drive, but rather you had to option one with 4MATIC. Naturally, this is a huge deal for traction given the massive amount of torque these and also for usability given this is a wagon after all. This 2000 up for sale outside of Zürich seemed to take advantage of that usability judging by the number of miles it racked up.

First off, this is a 2000 model year given it was produced in December 1999 along with the fact that it has all the facelift equipment. Now that is out of the way, we can see this one shows over 253,000 km (roughly 157k miles) and still looks great. It even has winter tires on it which is basically a death sentence for any older W210. I’m sure that is thanks to Switzerland’s strict standards on what drives on their roads, but even with that this one still looks great.
However, don’t expect a discount for the miles. An asking price of ₣24,500, which is nearly $26,000 in American bucks, sure makes me pause. I know Switzerland basically acts like its own little world and doesn’t care much for what goes on outside its borders and the price of things sure seems to apply as well. Then again, I’m sure there aren’t many of these out there, so if you want it, go ahead and pay.
