The Youngtimers are coming! Following global interest at our Paris sale, this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 500 TE AMG is coming to #RMEssen on 11-12 April when additional cars from #Youngtimer Collection will cross the block! . AMG was far from a household name in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but the firm had established an excellent reputation for modifying Mercedes-Benzes. One of their earliest and most celebrated conversions was fitting the W123 chassis with a 5.0-litre V-8, costing a whopping 65,000 Deutsche Marks. It is rumored that only a pair of wagons, sedans and a single coupé were converted. . While its early history is not known, this example was discovered in early 2013 by Henric Nieminen, a California-based AMG enthusiast. It is believed that the car was built in period by AMG in the U.S. . The Mercedes-Benz was cosmetically refreshed in 2013 and was used by BBC America’s Top Gear America in a segment celebrating 50 years of AMG. In 2017, it was purchased by the current owner and has remained one of the highlights of his collection of pre-merger AMGs. .
