|Estimate||£4,000 - £8,000|
|Result||Sold - £5,600|
The W210 is an executive car produced from 1995 through to 2002. They were sold under the E-Class model names in both saloon and estate body types. Only 2,870 AMG E50's were ever built and only during 1996/97; there was no righthand drive version and the model was not sold in the USA or the UK. There were four engines that AMG installed in the W210, the first was the E36, M104.995, launched in 1996 then the M 119.985 in the Euro Spec E50 AMG produced only in 1997. The body styling on all of the W210 AMG models was the same until 2000 when a facelift and interior upgrades were implemented. The W210 E55 was the last vehicle for which a major portion of production took place at AMG in Affalterbach. Production was actually split between Affalterbach and the Bremen Mercedes-Benz facility until the end of 2001.
Beautifully presented in metallic black with black leather trim, this rare European specification example was imported from Japan in 2015. In 2012, upon purchase, a Japanese mileage check verified 49,000km and it was again verified in 2014 at 55,000km before its import to the UK. Offered with a V5 registration certificate and 12 month MoT test certificate, this example also has two new tyres and is very well equipped with a rear blind and rear heated seats. One of just 2,870 ever made and built in AMG Affalterbach , this model offers 342bhp and is a must for the real Mercedes-Benz enthusiast; E50 AMG's are certainly not found in this condition often.
