As usual, Dean's spot-on. The Hammer 300E conversion set owners back approx. $80k when they were made originally. AMG used a custom-built V-8 in those cars, which used AMG's own twin-cam, 4 valve heads. The hammers retained the 300E narrow body (no fender flares), albeit with ground effects all around, and a small wing on the trunk.

Extremely cool car I'll grant you, but I can't imagine the repair cost if you had a problem with the motor!

I'd also recommend the 500E/E500...wonderful car, and supported completely by your local MBZ dealer, or PartsShop!!
