    Totally not getting but whatever... Must be a european thing...

     

    What don't you understand? Smiley

    A four-door luxury sedan with a 5 litre V8 and appropriate suspension coming from Porsche. That should be enough to decribe its appeal.

     

    Maybe you Americans are spoiled in that category but come to think of it... what did Cadillac offer back in the time? A FWD sedan for elder people.

    You picked it up in Paderborn? Bought it privatly or from a dealer?

     

    Indeed found it in Paderborn from a private seller, a passionate guy who'd owned it for 9yrs.

    I went to pick-up the car yesterday, I had a 200km drive over the German autobahn in order to drop the car off at my workshop to have it checked, serviced and detailed. I was really surprised by the driving experience it serves up, it still does 260km/h easily whilst blowing cool AC, amazing for a 25 yr old car. In fact as a car in which to travel it proved to be more comfortable than the 2014 BMW-Alpina in which we picked the car up. Really thrilled with the car, looking forward to pick it up in a week and take it to Italy.

     

    Isn't the car limited to 250 km/h? Smiley

    For the 500E the topspeed is redline limited at 260km/h. The 500E had shorter ratios than the 500SL on which it was based. Smiley

    My father used to own three SL 500 in that time. It was the first sports car I ever drove. I still remember the  push on kick down. The car was really fast, the engine sound was beautiful. Enjoy this amazing motor!

    Thanks, I did not know that.  Smiley  I thought all the Mercedes-Benz cars until quite recently were electronically limited to 250 km/h.

    The 1989 500 SL is the first car I truly fell in love with as a kid.  This car and the 500E made Mercedes-Benz my favorite brand back then.

    Same here! And 326HP was crazy those days. Just saying to people the car has more than 300HP was just insane! Smiley


    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    Well, some of us Americans definitely get it. I just helped a friend sell his original owner 500E that had 21K miles on it...

    Last beautiful SL in my opinion. Bruno Sacco was a great designer. From then on it went downhill design wise.

    Hmm - Bruno Sacco was a game changer. He was so famous that we all still remember his name. I think, Mercedes lost it after him and found back to better design apprx. 3 years ago. Since the A-Class, S, E,.... it seems they do better now. But yes - he was a star designer!

    Some new Mercedes look OK but the CLA... mail

    My son says it looks as if they didn't finish the car in the rear and my daughter always says that it looks as if the rear has melted. Smiley

    Just arrived in Como, Italy after the first 1000km leg, the old lady hasn't missed a beat. We had a thorough check-up done before leaving and everything was deemed OK. I'm still amazed how comfortable a car this is to travel in, yet because of its age a lot more entertaining/interaction than a modern car of this class would offer. It's still plenty quick enough to dismiss modern diesels on the autobahn, while being accompanied by a sonorous V8, just love it.

    Here it is on top of the Gotthard Pass, will share further pictures of the trip as we progress.

    Re: Mercedes-Benz W124 500E aka Porsche typ 2758

    Nice 500E!   I miss the high mileage example I owned for 4 years. 

    This has the M119 engine in it, and if I am not mistaken, the 500E had the same block as the Sauber C9 that held some records at Le Mans in twin turbo form.  Qualifying trim, 1000hp+...

    I'm assuming it had quite a few other modifications, it doesn't feel THAT sporty. :)

    Morning at Lake Como, evening at Chianti, going strong!

    Onur! I took them for two months but you can go up to 12 if desired, cost rises exponentially though...

    If you come, please let me know. The situation is not looking good after coup because everyone believes it is not over yet and stop spending/paying/buying.

    For example, we were ready to buy the 718 Cayman, after we sold our 981 Cayman 3 months ago. Its money is ready but we don't want to buy it because of our uncertain future. On the other hand, I'm happy about sending the 458 to Germany. I couldn't register the car yet but in the worst case senario, I will get 5 days-custom plate and make a road trip for that long. 

    As far as I know; EU5 cars can still be registered in Portugal, Poland and Hungary. So I'll sell my car there if not able to register it.
