    1993 Mercedes-Benz E36 AMG
    Offered without reserve
    RM | Sotheby's - LONDON 24 OCTOBER 2019
    Chassis No. WDB1240921F249300
    Engine No. AM636


    • Finished in sinister Blue-Black Metallic over a Black interior
    • The first post-merger Mercedes-Benz and AMG product
    • Delivered new to Japan


    Mercedes-Benz AMG GmbH was originally an independent firm specializing in performance enhancements to Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Then Daimler Chrysler AG took a controlling interest in 1999, later becoming sole owner of AMG in 2005, making it a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG.

    Founded in 1967, in its early days AMG concentrated on building racing cars based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class for European touring car series—the company rose to prominence and almost overnight recognition with the introduction of the “Hammer” in 1986. AMG worked its magic on the W124 E-Class with a tuned version of Mercedes-Benz’s 5.6-litre V-8, producing 365 bhp and thereby transforming the midsize sedan into the world’s fastest car at the time. Mercedes-Benz, incidentally, produced the W124 from November 1984 to August 1995.

    At its heart is a brawny V-8 straight off the S-Class production line. The conversion begins with disassembly of the engine. After boring out the all-aluminium engine to 6.0 litres, it is polished, balanced, and blueprinted. AMG swaps the stock SOHC two-valve heads for its own free-breathing DOHC four-valve-per-cylinder units. Back in 1986, Car & Driver recorded 0–60 mph in five seconds flat, a 1/4-mile in 13.5 seconds at 107 mph, and a top speed of 178 mph—utterly remarkable performance for the era!

    Aero aids give the car a slick 0.25 Cx coefficient of drag, along with wheel, tyre, and suspension modifications that provide for great handling to match the enhanced potential. AMG has never released production numbers, but it is estimated that the cars were built in very limited numbers due to their high initial cost.

    Born as a 320 TE and produced by Mercedes-Benz in December of 1992, this example was delivered new to Japan and is believed to have been converted to AMG specifications there. Finished in Blue-Black Metallic over a Black cloth interior, it is showing 34,287 km from new and would surely be an excellent example to drive and enjoy.

    So glad to see Mercedes has ignored the definition of Coupe for the longest time.

    Pffff it probably has to do with the hour of the day or the beer.

    I didn't even know the E36 was a thing. I though it was C-Class affair only.
