1996 Mercedes C36 AMG - 68K Miles - Silver w/Black? Leather
What started as the racing engine company of Hans Werner Aufrecht
("A") and Erhard Melcher ("M") in the town of Grossaspach ("G")
turned into the most legendary of all Mercedes tuners. They were so
successful that Mercedes-Benz took a controlling ownership stake in
1999 and made AMG their performance line. Today they are known for
brutal engine performance in all ranges of Mercedes. This 1996
Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG is reportedly one of 296 examples sent to the
US for the model year. The hand-assembled 3.6L DOHC inline-six was
factory rated at 276 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque, enough to
propel the 3,500-pound sedan to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds when new.
The seller is presenting the car with no known defects mechanically
(we always encourage an inspection if you will feel more
comfortable). There is paint bubbling near the added chrome wheel
well arch that will enhance the value once repaired and the arch
covers are removed. Overall, it is believed to have original paint.
Our seller purchased this C36 from us in 2018, never drove it in
poor weather and only used it on special occasions. With less than
300 brought in to the US when new, this will be an excellent
candidate for improvement, preservation and value retention.
