German Cars and Rare Sportbikes, For Sale Round-up

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on other rides for sale that I post elsewhere. Here’s a recap from the past couple weeks.

I hope you enjoyed the summary and thanks for reading!


1993 Mercedes-Benz 500E For Sale and Surprisingly Affordable

I’ve been meaning to point out that Hemmings has an .rss feed for it’s classifieds, and this 1993 Mercedes Benz 500E is a perfect example of the unique cars that are listed there:

1993 Mercedes 500E For Sale

1993 Mercedes-Benz 500E LIMITED PRODUCTION MODEL. Hand-built by Porsche in Stuttgart due to extensive floor and body modifications. 326 HP (11.2 lbs/hp, 0-60 in 5.5 sec.), 5.0L M119V8. Leather seats by Recaro. 1.5″ wider track, 0.9″ lower profile, flared fenders, side skirts, air dam, wide tires, and special wheels distinguish it from its lesser brethren. Only 1095 imported to the U.S. Considered a classic, as per MB. Featured in October 2005 issue of Hemmings Sports&Exotic. Always Mercedes serviced. All service records available. 70,000 meticulously maintained miles. Recent major service, all new brakes. Needs no attention–ready to drive. Call or email $15,950

This car seems priced lower than most of the 500E’s I’ve seen for sale, but what if it checked out? What a cool car!
