One of a handful of AMG-tuned Mercedes-Benz W123 estates

An old-school wagon with some added gusto? This 1979 Mercedes-Benz 500 TE was tuned by AMG. With that, of course, comes a major performance upgrade.

For example, take a look under the hood. It’s got a 5.2-liter M117 V8 taken from an S-class. It’s rated for 295 horsepower. Then there are all the other embellishments by AMG.

What makes this one special is that it’s believed to be the sole example with an AMG ID plate. Bonhams also notes that the car will require some recommissioning.

Not sure what I was expecting from the interior, but it wasn't that.

Such a rad wagon.

In reply to J.A. Ackley :

That doesn't seem like too wild of a price.

I just hope the buyer enjoys driving it.
