The Mercedes-Benz 500E was the original Porsche sedan. Today I'm reviewing a 500E to explain what I mean, and to show you around a classic Mercedes in excellent condition. I'm also driving the 500E to show you what it's like on the road.

  • Meanwhile in the Mercedes headquarters back in the day; hey let’s make a mad v8 E class The chief engineer; “I don’t want to waste on that thing” Meanwhile in Porsche...; WHO WANTS TO THROW A BIG V8 IN A MERC?!? All the team; “WE WANT TO THROW IT!!!”

  • Great cars on this channel but by God, this guy is one seriously annoying douchebag who comes out with some ridiculous commentary. Is it just me? Ass.

  • It doesn't look the same as the rest of the E Class range. The 500E has flared wheelarches.

  • The regular W124, which this car is based on, is Uncle Phil's and Carlton's car in Fresh Prince.

  • OK Dopey Doug doesn't get the car.... It's not a sports car, never was intended to be. It was designed for the German Autobahn where at that time there were only real restrictions round cities. It was designed to sit, on the autobahn all day, at 220 plus Kilometers per hour (125 MPH plus) and just cruise along. It was engineered for that purpose so that Mercedes could say they had the fastest mid sized sedan for sale..... Now, it's a classic......

  • My father owned this car from 1998 to 2009. I enjoyed the feel of the car on road trips. In Nigeria, we call it the V boot. Sweet memories.

  • a few thins here... The two wipers for the headlights and single for the windshield. You seem to think this is strange or not well though out. Makes complete scene to me, theirs two headlights and one windshield. The single blade wiper is also better then the two blades. Its quicker, cleans a bigger area and applies more presser on the windshield to get crap off. I can go on with more but really your review is a bit mundane on what this car is. Its for the person who loves Benz power and would give up a glove box for it.

  • For sheer longevity, reliability and real-world usability, the W123 and W124 Benz models were the thing. These were late W124 cars and came long before Chrysler took Daimler Benz to a dark and broken place. When they were introduced, the W124 models looked anodyne and unlovable... But they were not. This 500e is a monster of its time, but even the 300 and the 300-24 were pretty muscular. Lovely..... A little bit "dentist" when new, but time has been kind to them.

  • The mirror joy-stick is different and depends on what the owner paid for in Mercedes. I have a 1993 W124 coupe with 2 electric mirrors. You have forgotten to tell us about the automatic radio antenna. Also, there were a lot more options for the model and even the hand adjusting seats were quirky.

  • So you saying that 420e is inline 6? Porsche ajusted suspension and reinforced body to be stiffer. Also porsche improved price. 420e is very close to 500e but it is more exclusive.

  • a car like this with automatic gearbox,such a waste, this was more for kids who were learning to drive or old man who had phisic problems this is car to be driven with one hand on the steering wheel and other in the shifter and a very safe car , this if you have turns on the road ,if one drives 500 km´s in a straight line it´s ok

  • There is 3000 different parts litterally on the 500E compared to the regular w124 e-class. It is very different in driving feel. The chassis is way more rigid to handle the v8 engine. The 400E model is just a regular w124 with a smaller v8 and not comparable to the 500E

  • There was never a 500E in Australia, let alone a 400E! Here, you could only buy 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder E-Classes. The first V8 model didn't arrive until 1998 (E430).
