This one was spotted on Ebay Australia extremely cheap - unbelievable for such a low mileage example. It's VERY hard to find these cars in late model form (1996-1998) - most are the earlier S500s. Hard to say how many would be about but estimate only a few hundred C140 CL500s on the road in Australia (maybe a couple of thousand cars if you include the earlier S500 coupes and the 1992/93 SECs.
Found on Ebay USA in Sep 2019, with a buy now price of $8,750! It;'s never been a better time to buy one of these future classics. At the time of the sale the seller noted: Very well maintained garage kept it's whole life ,interior extremely clean like nobody ever sat in..119k miles runs and drives excellent AC ice cold with all the power options of its time and every button functions like it should,... I don't think it can get any more luxury than this back of its time just wonderful vehicle cleanest one I have ever seen
It's rare to see one on such an exotoc clour - most examples kept to traditional blacks, whites, and greys. This looks great in what we think is Quartz Blue - If anyone knows for sure please let us know. This example of the C140 was advertised on carsales.com.au and through other online sources in Australia, in September 2019. If anyone has history on the car, please contact the author on the button provided so we can update this page.
A nice example we spotted advertised on craigslist in September 2019. This one is a pre facelift car, Being a pre-1996 car, it appears to be suffering from the ASR issues which the seller mentioned in the advertsement. The following was taken from the initial ad on craigslist: Unfortunately It does have 2 issues:
1) Its has a slow power-steering-fluid leak. (Easy fix though).
2) The ASR-LIGHT pops up on the dash when the accelerator is pushed hard.
Car has sat for 2 years - was imported directly from Germany for an Embassy and an ambassador was driving it. The car is in fair condition for its age, and everything is there, however, it does not start and interior will need some attention (some sun damage). Everything is original, no modifications or upgrades. This vehicle is perfect candidate for restoration, with the C140 coupes fas becoming future classics.
This is an exceptionally rare 1964 Studebaker R-2 Daytona Hardtop, which we spotted listed on ebay USA in August 2019. Much of tjhis wording heer comes directly from the original advertoisement. Fitted with a factory 289 cubic inch Paxton supercharged engine and full performance package. The package included: Heavy duty springs and shocks, power front disc brakes, 3.73 Twin Traction rear end, dual exhaust, rear radius rods, rear stabilizer bar, tachometer, 160 mph speedometer, front bucket seats
The first example on our register, a genuine Keonig enhanced 500SEC twin turbo V8. It's the first time i've seen one advertised so thought it would be a good idea to keep a record of it on this register.
At the time this one was advertised, the seller noted the car was imported from Germany years ago, and had the following modifications done by Koenig Specials (KN):
– BBS Rims
– Twin Turbo
This 88 model was advertised on Ebay USA in July 2019. Reasonably high mileage (186,000), but like most old Mercs this doesn't really show and the car looks in good order. THe seller at the time noted the car was in excellent condition with no major issues, and drived well. One of a large number of 560SECs for sale in the USA - presumably the car's biggest market. They are a very affordable modern classic at the moment, but few of them are available with low mileage.
