A few pictures of the car uploaded. The car is unique in this way that there are only made 500 of the limited edition, and this one had a dark (black) bird eye wood trim. One of the 500 produced are displayed in Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen Germany. (and offcuse one excample in my hand :-) ) Handbuild in the Porsche Rössle Bau factory.

Never heard of this car being referred to as "E500", I always thought the '94 to be a "500E", built partially by and in cooperation with Porsche, ....... ??????

Well, I was just educated, ...... here is what Wikipedia says:

"From 1990 to 1994 (model years 1991–1994), Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E (W124.036). The 500 E was created in close cooperation with Porsche; each 500 E was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany during assembly — taking a full 18 days to complete each model. Design began in 1989 and into 1991. Called '500 E' through model year 1993, for model year 1994 it was face-lifted along with the rest of the range and renamed to 'E 500'."

This is for sure one awesome car and has always been on my list of MOST FAVORITE CARS.

Hi, thank you all for the kind words about the car. But I am still looking for a solution to get the wood trim in top shape. Does any of you know any one who have the skils to renovate this ?
