2002 Mercedes-Benz C32 AMG

It’s been two decades since Mercedes-Benz absorbed AMG as their in-house tuning firm. Each year, more and more fast Benzes have appeared with the infamous badge on their posteriors, tipping off that extra juice under the skin to the casual observer. One AMG model that I feel went a bit unloved was the C32 AMG. Sandwiched between two V8 AMG C class models in the US market (the W202 C43 and W203 C55), the C32 offered more punch via the way of a Kompressor, or supercharger, as was the case with a number of AMG and non-AMG models in the Mercedes lineup at the time. A lot of early W203 C classes, including the C32, have been run hard and put up wet, but this C32 for sale in New Jersey appears to have led a fairly pampered life by the looks of it.

Yet again, this is another case of a seller having a unique car yet providing little description for the buyer to go on. The seller has a less than perfect feedback rating, which is all the more case for someone like this to give full disclosure. Nevertheless, looking over the unmarked leather interior and clean exterior, it appears we may have a survivor here. Closing in on $12,000 is a little on the high side for an early W203 AMG model. If this car checks out and has no issues, somewhere in the $9,000 to $10,000 territory is more realistic.

  1. it’s a pretty cool sleeper of a car. even the cute little brakes don’t scream like say an e63 or e55s. i remember that autoweek did a story on it when it came out and i said “that’s my next car” i was wrong. got an STI instead. way less bucks and much more fun, i think. even so, it’s a great car for money, i think.

    i love this site, BTW

  2. I can’t decide if I like this body & powertrain more than the C36 that came before it. I remember the funny reactions of people when this powertrain became the Crossfire SRT-6 for a couple MY a little down the road of this particular example.

  3. oh. my mistake. i was thinking of the c36. ooops
