ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The enlarged 3.4L engine is in fine running order having recently been subjected to a full service to include spark plugs.
The AMG conversions were done on the standard 3.0L M104.980 engine by AMG as an independent tuner. Technically a 3310cc the cylinders were over-bored by 3mm and the crank from the M603 Engine used to increase the stroke. The cylinder heads were optimised for airflow and controlled with bespoke AMG camshafts, all in, increasing the bhp to 270, at the time a high figure considering the displacement of the naturally aspirated engine.
The transmission is the standard 5 Speed Automatic with manual gear holds in 2nd, 3rd and 4th for a more sporty drive.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original AMG stamped 17 inch split rims are present, these were build by OZ racing exclusively at the time. A 3 piece rim they have been recently fully stripped down and refurbished with all new chrome, paint, bolts and seals. They look absolutely stunning with a huge chrome deep dish and body colour centres, the wheels fill the enlarged arches to perfection both in size and offset completing the wide-body stance and iconic AMG 80s look.
Brakes are hidden behind the alloys, these work are they should with good pedal feel.
Supplied new by Mercedes-Benz and built in late 1989 as a high spec Japanese model 300CE-24. It was destined to go straight to AMG for mechanical and body modifications and once completed it was registered as such in AMG 3.4l guise in Japan on the 12th July 1990.
The Japanese owners pack is present along with its export certificate, shipping documents and sales invoice confirming it AMG 300CE 3.4-24v identity and subsequent export from the Japanese registration system.
There are no service records from it time in Japan however there is Mercedes Benz main dealer warranty information present confirming the car was covered and in good order in 2006, this cross referenced with information on the export certificate shows the mileage at this time at 118,200kms (73,446 miles).
On import into the UK in 2013 this very special pre-merger AMG was treated to a fully body strip down to confirm it’s wide body status and ensure it presented in the best possible condition both externally and internally along with mechanical servicing work. A photographic record of the bodywork and service invoices are included.
Much time, patience and cost has gone into this superb example and its condition shows as such. It is UK registered as of 2018 with all taxes and duties paid.
