The W202 C-Class was launched in 1993 to replace the successful 190 as the entry-level Mercedes model. Available in saloon or estate form and with a variety of excellent engines, build quality was to Mercedes’ usual high standard and the cars were well-received. In 1995, the C-Class was given to AMG, which had recently become a subsidiary of Daimler-Benz, with the instructions being that they should work their magic and produce a car to compete with the BMW M3. The result was the C36 AMG, using a 3.6 litre 24-valve straight six, driving through a four speed (later 5) automatic gearbox. 280bhp was the published output; in fact, due to the hand-built nature of AMG’s engines, the actual figure could vary. Performance was excellent, 60 being reached in 6.7 seconds, and an electronically-limited top speed of 155. The suspension was lowered and tuned, and the interior was generously equipped. A subtle body kit completed the car; understated, but not to be underestimated!
This car requires some recommissioning, having been in storage for several years, but it appears to be in good condition and is running. A rare car, with only 5,200 made and far fewer in right-hand-drive, this is a prime example of a modern classic. It comes with the last bill of sale from 2002, a V5c, and several old MOTs, service history and bills.
