The potent Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG was introduced in July 1994 as a flagship of the successful C-Class range. Unlike its C-Class stablemates, it was only offered in one pricey but complete package, including standard automatic gearbox, classy AMG alloy wheels, skirts and spoilers body kit plus a complete specification. Numbers were limited. A five-speed automatic gearbox and standard cruise control were added in August 1996 and the car was eventually run out with the C-class facelift in the summer of 1997. Mercedes super saloon fans then had to wait until the following year for the introduction of its replacement, the 4.3-litre V8-powered C43, which included all the refinements of the updated C-Class range. This car was also offered in estate form, a version which continued for six months when the saloon range was phased out in autumn 2000.
This rare righthand drive Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Estate was supplied new by Bradshaw Webb (Chelsea) Ltd with a large number of optional extras including green-black metallic paint, black leather interior, Parktronic system, auto tinting rear mirror, rain sensor wipers, auto pilot system, electric glass sunroof, folding mirrors, vanity mirrors, door lights, xenon headlights, Alpine CD autochanger and headlight wash / wipe. Recently repainted, this excellent AMG estate has a full-service history with a comprehensive file containing invoices and MoT test certificates. This Mercedes-Benz C43 is supplied with a V5C registration document, a new MoT test certificate, three sets of keys and is fitted with a Tracker system which could be reactivated. AMG are renowned for producing some of the best sports saloons and estates in the world and this model is certainly one of them. Definitely one of the rarest and fast appreciating Mercedes-Benz C 43 AMG's you can find in today's market.
