Allow us to present you the Mercedes 500E. To us this is the best car in the world and there are many reasons to support this. Whoever owned a W124 will acknowledge that this car is bullet proof. Add some performance to this and it becomes one of the best super sedans ever made. A wolf in sheeps clothes. 326bhp 5.0-litre V8 in 1991 is Ferrari territory.
The Porsche analogy is a fitting one since Merccedes turned to the sports car marque for help creating the 500E. Each car was hand built at Porsche's Zuffenhausen facility and took 18 days to complete. This was a bespoke, specialist car. Track widths were widened by an inch and a half, the wheelarches were flared to compensate, the suspension was lowered and stiffened, bigger brakes were fitted and a subtle , very subtle ,bodykit was added.
The 32 valve V8 was derived from the 500SL's and delivered a massive 354lb ft of torque to the rear wheels. Despite featuring a four-speed automatic gearbox, contemporary road tests achieved the benchmark 0-60mph sprint in under six seconds, with the quarter mile taking 14 sec and rumours that derestricted cars could hit 170mph flat out.
Inside, occupants didn't want for anything, the 500E exceptionally well kitted out as standard with features that included Recaro leather seats and the option of a cellular telephone. Left-hand drive only, Mercedes built a little over 10,000 during three years of production.
The W124 generation E-Class is widely considered to be one of the best-built cars Mercedes ever produced as we mentioned earlier and 240.000km with full service history and absolutely rust and accident free makes a W124 look and drive like new.
Invest on this one today and enjoy the astonishing built quality combined with performance and increasing value. The W124 500E is for us the best car in the world and the price to pay is little.
