The ultimate 'wolf in sheep's clothing' of the 1990s, the 500E saloon was built to rival the BMW M5 and was created in close cooperation with Porsche. The new stealth saloon offered no visible clues on the outside except for very slightly flared wheel arches, wider tyres, and discreet side skirts. 60mph arrived in just five seconds and 100mph in just over 14 seconds, remarkable for a car with such stately presence. It was only available as a hand-built, four-door saloon in left-hand drive and the low production numbers rendered it an instant classic.With virtually every option box ticked, including the very rare 'badge delete',the car was supplied by Mercedes-Benz Autohaus Oberhausen Mercedes-Benz of Essen, Germany on the 9th June 1992 and serviced by them four times up to 20,212km. It was subsequently purchasedby Senor Mesegur of Barcelona in 1996 and the service book and invoices show the mileage increased to 115,443km under his ownership. Maintained by Mercedes-Benz of Barcelona under Senor Mesegurs sole ownership and serviced seven times until the car was imported into the UK and registered on the 1stApril 2016, annually MOT'd and last serviced on the 25thApril 2019 at 120,004km. Apart from routine servicing, the car has also benefited from a replacement wiring loom in theengine bay, carried out by Mercedes-Benz Barcelona in 2015 along with additional works.With anodometer reading, at the time of cataloguing, of120,653km or some 75,000 miles, the Mercedes present beautifully and is offeredto auction freshly MOT'd.
