1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE 3.2 (AMG)
For automobile enthusiasts who demand greater power, handling and exclusivity than Mercedes-Benz, there is AMG.
AMG is currently the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, producing the company’s highest-end models. But it was originally an independent German tuning firm performing aftermarket conversions on standard Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
The superior performance, precision workmanship and striking motorsports success of pre-merger AMGs in the ‘70s and ‘80s greatly impressed Mercedes-Benz, which eagerly partnered with AMG in 1990 and fully acquired the company in 2005. To this day AMG constructs each engine by hand.
One of the most famous AMG-converted models from the 1980s was “the Hammer”, a converted Mercedes-Benz W124 (E-class) with a huge 6.0-liter V8 engine, and was known as, “the world’s fastest passenger sedan”. Another excellent W124 AMG-conversion from that era is the 300CE, which was produced from 1988 to 1989.
This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE, sourced by Japan Car Direct and on its way to France, is in outstanding condition. Its aerodynamically enhanced all-white body is tasteful, and also comes with tinted VIP windows.

Exhilaration is supplied by a 3.2-liter straight-six engine, mated with a 4-speed automatic transmission that reportedly produces around 230 hp. An aggressive exhaust note further heightens driving pleasure.
