‘For anyone wishing to give their Mercedes that extra personal touch, Mercedes-AMG GmbH has just the answers. The Daimler-Chrysler subsidiary offers the combined experience of Mercedes-Benz and AMG in the field of high-quality enhancements for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and puts the emphasis firmly on individuality when creating the customer’s dream Mercedes.’ – Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
AMG, which is now the official performance division of Mercedes-Benz, has a long history of producing high-performance derivatives of Mercedes’ standard production vehicles, and these improved versions enjoy an enthusiastic following world-wide, with prominent figures of the motorsport, entertainment, sport and business communities being counted among aficionados. The Affalterbach-based company first offered the ‘E36’ package of tuning and other improvements for the Mercedes-Benz E280 Coupé, Cabriolet and Estate in time for the 1994 season. Belonging to the medium-sized, W124-bodied E-Class, the latter were built in limited numbers in the traditional, classic Mercedes-Benz manner, being among the best-specified and most luxuriously equipped models in the range. Chief among the E36’s enhancements was the larger, 3.6-litre version of the six-cylinder, 24-valve, M104 engine. Producing 272 bhp and driving via a four-speed automatic transmission and a specific sport suspension, this state-of-the-art power unit was capable of propelling the E36 to a (limited) top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). External clues as to what lurked beneath the bonnet included body-coloured side skirts and bumper valances, and AMG’s own special 17" alloy wheels.
This very rare, fully AMG-converted E36 sports estate was first registered on 1st July 1995 in Germany, and on 31st May 1996 arrived in Japan (old Japanese registration document on file). The car is finished in Polar White with blue leather interior, and comes fully optioned with sunroof, Becker radio with 6 speakers, comfortable seating for seven with electric front seats, blue leather and wooden steering wheel, electric steering column. Well documented, the Mercedes has had only three owners, the last since 2002. All services have been carried out by Mercedes-Benz dealerships, and there are invoices totaling more than € 5.000 with the car, which is presented in generally excellent condition. Recently serviced, it is offered with French Contrôle Technique, manufacturer’s specification sheet, all books and manuals, three AMG brochures (French, English, and German), and a magazine article comparing the E36 and Volvo 850 T-5R estates. The car currently has German registration papers but a certificate to register it in France is present also ("PV de Réception à Titre Isolé").
