Mercedes-Benz AMG GmbH was originally an independent firm specializing in performance enhancements to Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Mercedes-Benz AMG GmbH was originally an independent firm specializing in performance enhancements to Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Then Daimler Chrysler AG took a controlling interest in 1999, later becoming sole owner of AMG in 2005, making it a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG. Founded in 1967, in its early days AMG concentrated on building racing cars based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class for European touring car series—the company rose to prominence and almost overnight recognition with the introduction of the “Hammer” in 1986.



An AMG model from the tuning companiy's past


AMG revised the W124 E-Class with a tuned version of Mercedes-Benz’s 5.6-litre V-8, producing 365 bhp and thereby transforming the midsize sedan into the world’s fastest car at the time. Mercedes produced the W124 model series from November 1984 to August 1995. At its heart is a brawny V-8 straight off the S-Class production line. Engine modification began with disassembly, and after boring out the all-aluminium engine to 6.0 litres, it is polished, balanced, and blueprinted. AMG swaps the stock SOHC two-valve heads for its own free-breathing DOHC four-valve-per-cylinder units.



The E36 AMG interior details


In 1986, the Car & Driver recorded 0–60 mph (0-96 km/h) in five seconds flat, a 1/4-mile in 13.5 seconds at 107 mph (172.2 km/h), and a top speed of 178 mph (286.5 km/h) — utterly remarkable performance for the era! Thanks to the aero elements, give the car a slick 0.25 Cx coefficient of drag, along with wheel, tyre, and suspension modifications that provide for great handling to match the enhanced potential. AMG has never released production numbers, but it is estimated that the cars were built in very limited numbers due to their high initial cost. The AMG model offered at the auction, which was born in December of 1992, as a 320 TE model. … and this example was delivered new to Japan and is believed to have been converted to AMG specifications there.



The powerful V8 engine, and spacious luggage, which got two seats - which can be folded to the floor, when not needed


The E36 AMG model offered for sale at auction was given a Blue-Black Metallic finish, and a Black cloth interior, it is showing 34,287 km from new and would surely be an excellent example to drive and enjoy. This very rare model version of the car collectors will look beautiful in your collection.
