Mercedes-Benz E 500: Double anniversary for young classic legend dating back 25 years
The Mercedes-Benz E 500 high-performance saloon celebrates two special moments that took place 25 years ago.
On March 20, 1994, the E 500 causes a stir at the Geneva Motor Show where Mercedes-Benz showcases the E 500 Limited special model, which as the name suggests, limited to 500 units. The special finish was available in either sapphire black or brilliant silver.
A few months later, in October 1994, the Stuttgart-based brand hands over the ten thousandth E 500 built since its premiere in 1990 to a customer. And not just any customer - former Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 racing driver Hans Herrmann.
Today agin All Time Stars, the Mercedes-Benz Classic dealer, always includes cars of the legendary model type in its portfolio. The V8 saloon with sports car performance has long been a particularly coveted Mercedes-Benz young classic.
