The success story of the E 500 begins at the Paris Motor Show in October 1990. It is here that Mercedes-Benz presents its new top model of the 124 model series, equipped with a 5.0-litre, 326 hp V8 engine.
This inconspicuous, but hellishly fast limousine may b recognised only at second glance. It is revealed only by slightly more pronounced wing arches, a body that sits 23 millimetres lower and the modified front apron with recessed fog lights.
The Mercedes-Benz 500 E is made by Porsche in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen on behalf of Mercedes-Benz. The sports car manufacturer already accompanied the project during its development.
In 1993, the 500 E becomes the last model in the 124 series. When the C-Class entered the market, the designations of all models has changed. From that moment, the letter or combination of letters before the three-digit number indicates the class of the vehicle. The facelift, has changed model designation from 500 E to E 500, but also has brought a changed design, which includes an integrated radiator, colourless turn signal cover lenses at the front, two-tone covers for the rear lamps and modified lines at the rear.
Today, the 500 E and E 500 models are among the most coveted young classics of the brand with the star and really put on a show at classic automotive events. The class of the car is confirmed by some of its first buyers, including Michael Schumacher, Niki Lauda and Rowan Atkinson.
