It's not often we find a W211 to feature that isn't an AMG as the vast majority have been used for daily duty, racking up miles and battle scars over the years. Today, however, we've found a 2006 E500 in Portland, Oregon with only 29k miles on the odometer. The condition fully supports this one and we think this is a huge value purchase with an asking price of $12,950. The car is also a 1-owner vehicle, currently being sold by the same nice folks who drove it off the dealership lot almost 15 years ago. The Pewter Metallic paint appear well cared for, matching the Charcoal Leather interior providing a classy and mature appearance.
If you aren't completely sold yet, stay tuned. This W211 is loaded with options in addition to being a V8. Yes, the E320s are fantastic vehicles as well, but the E500s are less common and get just a few more smiles per gallon; not AMG smiles per gallon, but you get the idea. Now for the options:
- Premium Package (323) providing Active Ventilated Front Seats, Harman Kardon Logic 7 Digital Surround Sound System, CD Changer, Glass Sunroof, Rear Window Sunshade, Rear Side Door Sun Blinds, DVD Navigation
- Appearance Package (322) providing Bi-Xenon lowbeams with Active Corning Illumination, Headlamp Washers, Blue Tinted Glass, LED Brake Lights, Semi-Active Suspension, Sculpted Side Skirts, Front Bumper, Rear Apron, and 17" Sport Wheels. The E320 Appearance Package requires leather interior and Semi-Active Suspension, both of which are included in the price of the Appearance Package.
- Parktronic (220) providing parking assist with front and rear sensors to notify driver how close he/she is to object (sensors seen integrated in the bumper moldings).
We'd like to get a better picture of the driver seat side bolster, but from what we can see the interior is in excellent condition. The original floor mats are provided with the sale as seen in the trunk. The headlights remain clear which is worth noting as all of the lenses haze over with oxidation over time and exposure to the elements. This is a great indication the car has spent most of it's life garaged. All panels appear to match in color and no blemishes can be seen. The paint retains it's shine, helping to show the body lines in the Pewter Metallic finish.
The seller states the car is in excellent condition and is a non smoker/pet vehicle. The car comes with a clean Carfax and title in hand. We're confident the next owner will find years of enjoyment from this near-new condition E500. Or maybe this is even worth buying to resale at a premium because this is not your average W211.
