Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Estate. What do you do when you lust after the rare AMG E36 Estate that was never available in the US and is not yet eligible for import? You build one. Or in this case you have one professionally built for you with an open checkbook, and the results are fantastic.
The owner of this AMG E36 Martini Racing tribute wagon started with a clean 1995 example of the venerable E320. A reputable Atlanta shop oversaw the mechanicals, which included sourcing an engine from a 95k mile C36 -- which was disassembled, received a top-end rebuild and reseal and was installed along with a rebuilt automatic transmission. The differential was changed to a shorter gear ratio. Virtually all of the suspension was renewed which included Koni Adjustables up front, new SLS in the rear, H&R sport springs all around, new bushings, new steering components and more. Brakes were refreshed and the entire cooling system was replaced at the time of the build. The 17-inch AMG-style wheels were sourced from the Tire Rack, and the Michelin Pilot Super Sports have lots of life remaining. Receipts total over $37,000 for the mechanical portion of the build alone.
Cosmetically this wagon shows well with nice paint and body -- the vinyl graphics are removable should the new owner choose to have a more sedate estate. The interior is attractive with renewed seat padding and a refinished 500E steering wheel complementing an otherwise very clean and original space. No expense was spared (nearly $3,000) on a high-end yet stealth stereo install using Alpine, JL and Focal components by a reputable shop -- the owner says that it sounds better than the Burmester system in his 2017 Mercedes.
If you are looking for a unique, do-it-all, performance wagon with a third row to haul the kids, classic Mercedes build quality and looks, and an approachable vibe that will have everyone admiring at your ride at Cars and Coffee...then look no further. Service records, tools, spare, jack and original first aid kit are included.
