“This modified 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E is a limited-production European-market sport sedan that was developed jointly with Porsche and later custom-tuned by Azzurre Motoring in Japan,” AutoHunter notes in the listing. “Power is sent to the ground through 19-inch Carlsson wheels on low-profile tires.”

This Mercedes features gray Louis Vuitton suede and black leather front bucket seats with a matching rear bench seat. It has a stainless-steel AMG-branded door sills, aluminum pedals, a Raid Porsche steering wheel, and marble-finish trim.
