AMG Look: 1995 S500 Coupe

Newly listed in Palm Harbor, FL, this 1995 S500 Coupe had us thinking really hard about travel plans to Florida for the weekend. While we love a 140 coupe in stock form, the car seems to become exponentially more attractive with the addition of monoblock wheels and an AMG kit. This particular car checks both boxes. The car currently reports 113k miles and has a lot of things going for it including a price of only $7,600. But there is one issue that buyers will have to accept if they want to add this S500 to their stable.

Finished in a desirable Black (040) over Anthracite Leather (261), the AMG body kit really "makes" this car. For what it's worth, a C140 AMG body kit alone is worth a few thousand dollars in addition to being very difficult to track down. The seller states the car also wears staggered 18" AMG monoblocks which appear to be in fair shape. Potentially some clear coat yellowing on the fronts based on the pictures. The car is also lowered on Lorinser springs according to the seller. We can also see an exhaust tip which completes the AMG look.

On the interior, the woodgrain and leather is a bit tired. Fading and cracking is seen on the woodgrain and the leather shows a fair amount of wear which could potentially be cleaned up with a leather repair kit. As a 1995 model, it's worth noting that this still has the biodegradable wiring harness from the factory so it's worth asking if that's been replaced. The seller states that the car has cold AC and hot heat and is accompanied by some service receipts. When new, the M119 5.0 produced 315 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. Within the last year, the seller has installed a new battery, radiator, thermostat, and tires.

Now for the bad news. Despite a clean AutoCheck history, the Carfax reveals an accident early in the car's life in 1996 where the car was considered a total loss. In 1996 with only 6k miles, the car's value would've still been strong so we expect significant damage to earn that total loss status. Still, the car could nearly be parted out for more than the asking price thanks to the AMG wheels and body kit. For what it is, there's a lot of value even with with title status and the asking price still seems fair enough for an AMG kitted 140 coupe.
