THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

First shown at the Paris Salon in 1990, the Mercedes-Benz's 500E sports saloon had been developed with assistance from Porsche. Indeed, it was hand built at Porsche's Zuffenhausen factory, and in recent years an example of the E500 Limited version has been on display in the new Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen. The production process involved each and every 500E being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau factory in Zuffenhausen; each car taking a full eighteen days to complete.

This ultimate 90s Q-ship was purchased brand new in 1994 by its first owner from W.I. Simonson Mercedes-Benz in Santa Monica, California. The car was ordered in a beautiful shade of Black Pearl Metallic over a grey leather interior. In accordance with the original window sticker and dealer extras tag, before leaving the dealer, the car was outfitted with custom chrome wheels and had the lower portion of the body painted to match the rest of the car. The original owner took incredible care of the vehicle, only using it sparingly on weekends. After more than 20 years, the original owner finally parted ways with the car and sold it to his next door neighbor who had always lusted after the performance sedan.

Today, with fewer than 22,500 original miles, the car is in phenomenal condition. One would be hard pressed to tell this apart from a new car rolling off of the showroom floor. A look through the impressive service history shows that the vehicle was consistently and meticulously maintained throughout the years. Recently a full, comprehensive service was completed which included the distributor caps and rotors, all air filters, rear hydraulic cells replaced, SLS system flushed, oil pan gasket replaced, transmission service, brake, and coolant flush, in addition to new tires being fitted. The car is sold with its original window sticker with dealer add-ons, all books, warranty card, Lo-jack booklet, radio card, the spare tire and tool roll (both original and unused) 4 original keys including an unused valet key still in its plastic, the original Mercedes-Benz cellular phone, and a clean Carfax. Appealing to both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche enthusiasts, the 500E is a rising star, with this particular example being one of the brightest.
