More on the W124 500E
The W124 generation 500E was developed in collaboration with Porsche and featured the 5.0 V8 engine from the 500SL roadster. These Porsche-built Mercedes had 326hp and could do a 0-60 time in under 6 seconds which was quite fast for it's time (faster than a 964 Carrera 2 with tiptronic!). Larger 4-piston front brakes and Recaro sport seats for both the front and rear. The most distinctive exterior feature of the 500E in our opinion is the flared fenders which give it a mature yet aggressive stance. Less than 50 W124 500E were imported into Canada making this one of the rarest cars in the country.
