The AMG C32 Estate is a car that even for ourselves as hopeless petrol heads escaped our attention, disguised as a non-
Our sort of car this -
We've since learnt that changing the supercharger pulleys produced even more power, although in our opinion this really would be excessive. A total of 8,100 of these C32's were made, although most would have been supplied as 4-
Contrary to its on-
These were supercar levels of performance when new and still formidable figures today, that make it one of the fastest 5 seater estates available. Naturally, the chassis was unrated, with AMG monoblock brakes to match. Here's an original road test / review from Car & Driver in the U.S.
This particular C32 AMG was originally supplied new in Japan, as a full optioned car. Having only lived it's life on Japan's super smooth roads bereft of salt and other corrosives and only been used as a city car for weekend use, garaged when not & maintained by MB Japan -
Equipment: This example came with full options for the Japanese market. Rather than listing all it has, here is a link decoding the original chassis number. Specification is complete, inclusive of heated electrically adjustable leather seats, sunroof, auto dimming mirrors, original fitted mats, factory original security system and a lot more besides. We checked and it's all working perfectly. Indeed most electrical problems on older MB's are caused by corrosion to electrical terminals, etc. resulting from years of use in corrosive climates; of which this example has never been exposed to.
If not used all year round and especially if winter roads with salt, grit, sand, etc. are avoided & continues to be well maintained, then it should be expected to remain in beautiful & trouble-
Condition & Test drive: As should already be clear, the condition of this example is exemplary. It was clear to us when we found this example (after rejecting several other C32 AMG's, despite being rare cars in Japan) it had always been garaged. Registered in Tokyo since new, it has only been used for pleasure on weekends. Clearly it was owned by a mature driver too; the rear seats would appear to have never been sat in and the luggage compartment was similarly unused. Mostly, it was used by a driver alone. There are no marks that would have been left from carrying heavy goods, or large objects with sharp edges. No such damage at all & it's never been smoked in. We found no signs of drink or food spillage either. Just a perfectly clean car. The bodywork is blemish free with 100% original factory paintwork. A lack of stone chips confirms that the performance available was rarely used, which wouldn't be unusual for a Tokyo car. Most respectable people never break the 120 km/h speed limits (75 mph) in Japan.
We drove this car 75km in order to fully test it & familiarize ourselves with this model and found nothing amiss at all. Fluids are all freshly changed and the car's in perfect working order. There's a couple of light scratches on the wheel edges that we noted (& tyres are high quality and near new also -
As value for money, it's hard to think of a better choice amongst all the other cars we offer.
