155mph never looked so good

1999 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

5.4 V8, 355bhp, 0-60 in 5.4 seconds, top speed 155mph (electronically limited)

OVERVIEW:
Registered on a V registration number but with a private plate included in the sale (valued at £290 by Elite Registrations)
115,000 miles with good history. 5 Owners from new.
The first owner of the car decided not to go for the usual Black or Silver that most W210 E55 cars were ordered in, and chose the rare Designo Purple edition.
I do not know how many of these were made, but I haven’t seen another one. If you know something about this, I’d love to hear from you. This could well be the only one left?
INTERIOR:
– Excellently preserved Designo edition leather interior, with all the toys
– See list from factory below for full spec
EXTERIOR:
– Rusty arches have been professionally dealt with. If you know these W210’s, you’ll know they’re very prone to rust. This car has had extensive work done to bring it back to it’s former glory
– Factory correct staggered 18inch AMG Alloy wheels will be refurbished before sale
– See list from factory below for full spec
ENGINE:
– The awesome 5.4 V8 naturally aspirated unit
– Excellent service record

InMotionMedia’s Latest Edit for The SL Shop will make you crave a vintage Mercedes

The team at InMotionMedia have been busy working with The SL Shop on some movies for the latest incarnation of the SL Shop website… And it’s about as stylish as classic car content gets.

The SL Shop are Europe’s leading Classic Mercedes-Benz Specialist, and are well known for turning out impeccable examples of the 107 SL.

Shot in the wonderful countryside not far from SL Shop’s Redditch base, the video will have you scrabbling over your keyboard to check the going rate on 1980s Mercedes convertibles…

Below are a few of our favourite scenes from this lovely edit – scroll down to watch the full 3 minute video.

And with that, we’re off to convince the bank manager that a classic German super-cabriolet with a 5.0 V8 engine is a worthy cause for a bank loan.

What is the Mercedes E60 AMG?

What do the Mercedes E60 AMG and the Beast of Bodmin have in common?

Cars so cool we just have to blog about them: #1 Mercedes E60AMG

This Mercedes E60 AMG was found on eBay in November 2014, at a stately £50,000

What is the E 60 AMG?

In a word, it’s rare. Not content with the humdrum production 5.0 litre E500 AMG version of the W124 Mercedes, a mid 1990s a collaboration with Porsche produced the 6.0 litre E60 AMG derived from the M119 engine and knocking out around 380bhp.

Fitted with the same wheels as the equally legendary Mercedes W201 Evolution, the E60 AMG is even rarer than it’s rear-winged cousin, with just 124* made compared to the Evolutions 502.

What makes it worth a feature?

It’s a bit like the beast of Bodmin… No one knows how many are out there, but one pops up every now and then in a flurry of online activity before disappearing again. That, and the whole ‘understated subtle super saloon’ mean we just can’t help but drool over the photos.

Anything else to know about it?

Unlike the beast of Bodmin, most of the E60 AMG cars ended up in Japan. Apparently there is only one in the UK, which is the car you see in the photos, but rival factions of Mercedes Club GB dispute how many are out there. Some say 12, some say 126. There’s probably some eagle-eyed club member who can tell us, but until then, we’ll be camped out near Wadebridge with a pair of binoculars and the worst camera we can find listening out for the sound of that 6.0 litre engine coming flying down the A30.
