Historically, the E-Class is Mercedes-Benz' best-selling model, with more than 13 million sold by 2015. The first E-Class series was originally available as a four-door saloon, five-door estate, two-door coupé and two-door convertible. From 1997 to 2009, the equivalent coupé and convertible were sold under the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class nameplate which was actually based on the mechanical underpinnings of the smaller C-Class, while borrowing the styling and some powertrains from the E-Class. A trend continued with the C207 E-Class coupé/convertible which was sold parallel to the W212 E-Class saloon and estate models. With the latest incarnation of the E-Class released for the 2017 model year, all body styles share the same W213 platform. The coupé (C207) was first shown at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, while the convertible (A207) was unveiled at the 2010 North American International Auto Show.
This superb E500 Sport Convertible was registered in March 2010 and shows a mere 55,000 miles since then. This could almost be described as running in for the 5.5 litre engine. Presenting well in the subtle colour combination of dark metallic silver with a black interior the look is enhanced by a set of spoke style alloy wheels and red brake calipers. The sheep’s clothing look certainly doesn’t give away the cars wolf like performance. This is alluded to with the 5.5 AMG badging. With only a few hundred made this rare model has benefitted from main dealer and specialist servicing. the last service being recorded as January this year. This attractive convertible was fitted with a custom built stainless steel exhaust in 2021 at a cost of £1,440 which gives the car a real V8 sound. Offered with a V5 registration document and a valid MoT certificate this Mercedes is ready to be enjoyed by a new custodian.
