It features a 5.0 M117 V8 (MB realized that the M119 didn’t fit in the W463 engine bay), 4 speed automatic transmission with high / low transfer case and locking center and rear differentials. The exterior is metallic purple with very few blemishes. The wheels are rare late ’90s AMG 18″ wheels with brand new Continental tires. The interior is in great shape (no rips or tears in the leather) and features power front heated seats, cold air-conditioning, and hot heat. All panels are the original Designo two tone black and gray leather.
