Very cool, im a sucker for rare AMG cars. Before this car was the W124 E60 AMG with a stroker M119 in it, back in the day that thing was nuts. If I remember they had over 400HP and a 4 speed gearbox and would top out at 300kmh.

Only problem is 90% of people wont know what it is, and those who are slightly into Mercedes will deny this car exists and just say you put some badges on. I had a R129 SL with a AMG 6.0 in it. You'll go nuts when a ignorant Mercedes fan boy asks you what motor you have.

I don't know much about E50's but I'm wondering why this car would be LHD if he had it imported from Japan?

Dumb question but why the rage over the e50 when we have the e55 here? or is e50>e55?

Seems like how some people viewed a RHD JDM vehicle about 15 yrs ago.

Its LHD because you could option cars like that, and well its cool in Japan to have LHD.

The E50 is a hell of a car, but you are right that the E55 is a newer and slightly quicker. The E55 was built with a M113 3V V8 which people say is a bit inferior to the older M119 4V V8.

E50 is far more rare though than the E55, and that demands a premium. Only Benz geeks really go for this stuff, like me.. For example a E36 AMG is the most collectible one to go for.

A real sleeper though is the E60 AMG which came with the M119 at 6.0L and had a 6.3L option available apparently
