If the recent W210 E55’s we've posted seem like just a little too much to take on as a daily driver, we’d suggest the more economical, slightly softer E430 Sport. These cars took the current AMG badges philosophy without all the needless AMG badges used today. Take the top of the line non-AMG model, add suspension and body from the hot rods, and market it as a Sport trim.
This 1999 is definitely the sensible option finished in Smoke Silver over Beige showing only 61k miles on the clock. The AMG styling and 17” 5-spoke wheels help this E430 maintain a slightly more aggressive look over the non-sport variants. In addition the E430’s lent 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque to the driver. Altogether these sleeper variants shouldn’t be slept on.
This E430 Sport can be found here on Craigslist outside St. Louis, MO for a very reasonable $10,500. (Try to excuse the photography)
