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.
