1988 Mercedes-Benz 300 E Sedan AMG
Location: Italy
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.
