1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E 3.4 AMG (LHD)

Launched in November 1984, the Mercedes-Benz W124, the model that inaugurated the E-Class moniker in 1993, is nearing its 30th anniversary, a fact that many cars from this series appear to ignore. Acknowledged by Mercedes-Benz one of its “over-engineered cars”, the W124 series was offered as a Saloon, Estate, Coupé, long-wheelbase version and Convertible. More than 2.7 million units were produced between 1984 and 1997, a testimony to the W124’s success.

AMG meanwhile was an already well respected tuning house, based out of Affalterbach, Germany, specialising in Mercedes-Benzes, for both racecars and road cars. Founded in 1967, the company had been quite a success, from their achievements with the 300SEL 6.3 based “Red Pig” to their tasteful customisation of W126s etc in the 1980s, not to mention their performance upgrading, resulting in the iconic AMG “Hammers” and the 6 litre monster that propelled them.

In the 1990s, the W124 became their main focus for upgrading and they did this to an impressive degree, varying from 6 cylinder cars to putting their 6.0 V8s in 124s creating the E60 AMG. These were the last few years before ultimately, Mercedes signed a merger with AMG, creating the sporting giant we all know and love today as Mercedes-AMG.  And whilst Post-Merger AMG’s have a clear value and global appreciation, the rarity of Pre-Merger AMG cars has seen them increase dramatically in value and deservedly so, especially when one considers their motoring significance, which is where our car comes in.

The car we offer to you today is an incredibly rare Mercedes 300E 3.4 AMG. Delivered new in Japan in 1990, the car went straight to AMG Japan to receive a full conversion to AMG specification, both mechanical and cosmetic. Featuring a bored out version of the 3.0 Mercedes M104 engine as well as other performance upgrades, the work of the masters at AMG led to a horsepower boost of around 40hp, bringing the total figure to 268hp. This combined with the engine’s lighter weight in comparison to Mercedes’ own 500E gave the 3.4 significant performance figures with 0-60 times of around 6 seconds and a reported top speed of 155 mph.

All in all, this makes for an genuinely fun and engaging car to drive which is only helped by the subtle but elegantly sporting AMG styling kit, combined with the luxury improvements in the form of the front, heated and electric Recaro C-Classic seats which are a very desirable feature indeed. This is of course, not even mentioning the sheer rarity of such a vehicle, with admittedly little known in the way of production figures of AMG 3.4s but they are believed to be rarer than the 6.0 Hammers, i.e. the Mercedes E60 AMG. The car is truly not to be missed, especially considering the ever-growing desirability of pre-merger AMG products and the particular rarity of the car we offer before you today.

om Mercedes-Benz
År 1886 byggde Karl Benz Benz Patent Motorwagen allmänt betraktas som den första bilen. Lite visste han det var att vara i början av världens mest kända biltillverkare. -Mind Du satsningen finansierades av hans hustru Bertha Benz.

Inte alltför långt Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft grundades av Gottlieb Daimler och Wilhelm Maybach började marknadsföra sin bil 1901 använder nu kända namn: Mercedes (spanska för skänk från ovan), som valdes efter deras distributör Emil Jellinek dotter.

För att göra en lång historia kort, Daimler fusionerades 1926 med Benz & Cie., Blev Daimler-Benz och anta Mercedes-Benz som sin bil varumärke

Även anses av vissa konservativa sanningen är faktiskt tvärtom, Daimler-Benz historia är fylld med "firsts": Honeycomb radiator, float förgasare, fyra hjulbromsarna 1924, (även om Duesenburg Model A rapporterades att idrottsliga dem så tidigt som 1922 ), första dieseldrivna personbilar 1936, Mercedes-Benz 260 D, första direkt bränsleinsprutning i Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (väl inte riktigt så liten 2-takts Gutbrod hade faktiskt den första direkt bränsleinsprutning), fram och bak deformationszoner ie. säkerhetscell av Béla Barényi patenterades 1951 och introducerades i "Ponton" -modellerna, Anti-bromssystem (ABS) erbjöds först på W116 450SEL 6.9, första produktions krockkuddar ... och listan kan göras lång.

Under sina 100 + år har Mercedes producerat mer än en skälig andel av ikoniska bilar; SSKL, 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, W100 600 Pullman, W111 280SE 3,5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6,3, W201 2,3-16 Cosworth för att bara nämna några.

Man får inte glömma de berömda Silverpilarna (Silberpfeile) antingen W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 som alla var mer än kapabla att kastar sina motståndare på banan.
