Sold for 84,000 Euros at  Sotheby’s Auction / Duemila Ruote / November 25th, 2016

 

Base Price when new:  $121,472 USD to $161,422 USD
Model: 300E AMG 6.0 ‘Hammer’
Engine: 6.0 liter V8 / 375 horsepower
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: Unknown

This is a early W124 body AMG 6.0 Hammer from 1988.    The expected price range at Auction was from  2,500 – 5000 Euros but sold for an astounding 84,000 Euros.   At the time, it was considered the fastest passenger sedan in the world. It was faster than the Lamborghini Countach from 60-120mph.

Whats interesting about this car to me is that its a manual transmission.  I have never seen an AMG car fitted this way.  The AMG steering wheel and the Recaro Seats are in good condition.  In typical AMG fashion, it has  black AMG monoblock wheels that match the body.

1991 Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer E60 W124 body

1991 Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer E60 W124 body
Price $75,000

Mileage: 12,428 miles
Chassis: WDB1240361B565465

This is believed to be a true factory E60.  I see no reason to doubt it. Only 126 of these rare cares were produced by Mercedes. AMG re-engineered the reliable M119 5.0 litre V8, increasing capacity to 6.0 litres and boosting power by almost 100hp.

What do you think of price?
