THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Bluetec is Mercedes-Benz's diesel technology that had hoped to help the broaden the acceptance of diesel vehicles in the US. Mercedes-Benz claimed that Bluetec family of engines has resolved virtually all performance and environmental issues associated with diesels. In the new E320, the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 produced 208bhp and a very impressive 388 lbf⋅ft from 1600 to 2400 rpm, numbers that rivaled the E500s V8. Inside of the engine were a host of features which helped to accomplish these performance figures including common-rail direct injection and piezoelectric injectors which aided throttle response. The E320 ran to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds, but just as impressive was its 26/35 mpg EPA rating.

This particular E320 Bluetec has successfully completed the E-Class Experience Paris – Beijing. The incredible 14,000 kilometer journey consisted of 5 stages; stage one was Paris to St. Petersburg, stage two St. Petersburg to Yekaterinburg, stage three Yekaterinburg to Almaty, stage four Almaty to Lanzhou, stage five Lanzhou to Beijing. By the end of the rally, the E-class and Mr. Schnuerer had visited a total of nine countries. Accompanying the car are a host of souvenirs from the rally including, the car's original European paperwork, all of the route books, Mercedes-Benz literature, and many Merdedes-Benz items specific to the the rally. After completion of the rally the car was brought home to California, where it assumed its hard earned place in the amazing Schnuerer collection. As with all cars in the collection, the Bluetec was the recipient of a rigorous maintenance schedule at the local Mercedes-Benz dealer. Numerous service invoices are present in the history file. It is believed that there are only two E-Class Experience Paris – Beijing veterans that have retired to the US. This single owner Bluetec offers the opportunity to take home a rare Mercedes-Benz model with an extraordinarily unique and special history.
