Aftermarket specialist company Overdrive has recently delivered an outrageous six-wheeled Toyota Hilux, they decided to turn the page and concentrate on a youngtimer – the critically-acclaimed Mercedes E60 AMG, which turned heads back in the 1990s.
Called a super sedan in its heyday, the E 60 AMG was commercially and critically successful, while customers enjoyed a level of exclusivity that won’t be easy to achieve today – only 126 units were manufactured and the car in question is a 1993 model year. The particular E60 AMG was already doing swell when it reached the Overdrive garage – where it initially had the great idea of taking a break in the paint shop. There it nailed a fresh coat and then it also had some massaging activity – where it lost all the old rubber seals and the brakes replaced with ones coming from a newer S55 AMG (W220). No repairs were done on the engine and transmission, which were kept pristine. This vehicle has only clocked on the odometer a little more than 100,000 km (62,140 miles) and has received a bespoke interior that holds true to its original specs.
The dashboard has now been covered in leather, the headliner is clad in Alcantara, and all the mahogany trims have been treated to a piano black finish, but other than that the cabin has been kept as close to the original as possible. By the way, if you remember, the Mercedes-Benz Museum has decided to sell off some of its vintage cars – among them a related 1994 E60 AMG Limited which is even more exclusive – only 12 units were manufactured – which has been bought by someone for a cool 189,000 euros.
