Up for auction is a very rare iconic Mercedes 500GE MY1993, one of only 446 produced 500GE’s. Don’t miss this out!!

The 500GE was a limited edition model only produced in 1993 and the beginning of 1994. It was the first G-Class with a V8 engine. Mercedes used the M117 engine out of the w126 and r107 chassis. In the 500GE the engine produced 241Hp and with that amount of power it was the strongest G-Class as that time. Later on in 1994 AMG produced 12 500GE’s with a 6.0 liter engine.

The 500GE was only delivered in 1993 and beginning of 1994. Only one color was available. DB338 Amethystblau metallic. The interior was delivered by Mercedes in a full leather dual tone with Anthracite and grey inserts. The 500GE was packed with all luxury feature from that time like, Air conditioning, 4 power windows, central locking, Leather seats with heated seats in the front. Both front seats were fully electrical adjustable. Cruise control, Radio/cassette connected to a 4 speaker system with fader button, Burl wood wooden inlays in the interior, Electric tilting and sliding sunroof, trailer coupling, chrome bulbar with headlight protectors, Bumpers in car color, Aluminum wheels and many more nice features.

Since this is a European car the VIN was not recognized by the ebay vin system and i had to put a wrong vin in the listing.

Engine and transmission work perfectly. The electric components like, power windows, locks, power seats, cruise control, airconditioning work properly. The AC got a new charge, all engine belts were replaced and the engine got a full service with new oil and filter. 4 brand new tires and a new battery.
