1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E For Sale In London (LHD) For Sale

1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E For Sale In London (LHD) A collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Porsche Hand-built by Porsche 74,670 miles In 1989 a historic deal between Mercedes and Porsche was consummated. Built to compete with the M5, the 500E project began as a joint venture with Porsche. The platform was to be based upon the highly successful W124 E-class Chassis. The 500E enjoyed a manufacturing process that was distinct from most automobiles produced in the modern era. Conversion of the existing W124 chassis into the 500E was done the old fashioned way by hand. During assembly, all 500E were manually pushed around the Porsche factory floor on rolling dollies. Each car took over eighteen days to complete. At various stages of production, the cars were physically transported several times back and forth across Stuttgart between the Mercedes and Porsche factories. Both companies shared key aspects of the design, development, modification, and production of the 500E. Porsche strengthened the W124 chassis and widened the standard transmission tunnel in order to fit the much larger and heavier Mercedes-Benz 4,973cc aluminium block DOHC 32-valve V-8. Stampings from Mercedes-Benz and other suppliers were sent directly to Porsche so they could be hand welded onto the W124 chassis. The front and rear wings were widened to accept the bigger tyres and larger track of the 500E. It was said that Mercedes-Benz lost money on every 500E that was produced. Given the 18-day production cycle, the back and forth between factories, and all the hand craftsmanship, it’s easy to see why the car was a not-for-profit project. But for Mercedes-Benz, this car was less about profit, and more about making a statement to the rest of the automotive world. This example is finished in Blue-Black Metallic (Blauschwarz) with Black Anthracite Leather and has covered 74,670 miles from new. It was ordered and delivered new to Munich with the following factory fitted options, Electric sunshine roof, Becker Mexico radio cassette, Heated front seats, Electric re-blind, Telescopic steering column to just name a hand full of the options. This represents a rare opportunity to acquire a European delivered car finished in the best colour combination and on the button road ready for immediate use.
