Renntech E60 on CL

No, it's not a gun.

1997 Renntech Mercedes E60 RS

Ditch the rims and goofy interior...

Sure, almost $20k for a car with 125k on the odo...no thanks. I don't care how rare they are.

Sorry but that interior is hideous. I would be ready too shoot myself after a 10 minute ride in that cabine.

K & N filters, ugly black wheels, and that....hideous interior..ugly -- a horror.


I have seen the w210 e60 RENNTECH persoally in the U.S. Mercedes Benz classic center in Irvine, that the ad in question here had mentioned. The ad text states:
"These machines are considered very special and one of them resides at the US Mercedes museum".


Here are the pic's I took of that vehicle a couple of years ago on a visit to the MB Classic Center in Irvine, CA. :







It belonged to a well known US television celebrity I think named "Seinfeld" and was VERY tastefully done, except for the E60 badge and the chromed dual exhaust tips it looked pretty much just lilke a stock e55 AMG that had also been lowered a little bit more. (MUCH nicer than this.... pig...that is for sale here)..

You just have to laugh at the idiocy in the ad. Took out the seats and added these because its a "RS" pAckage? No such thing. Those seats are also cheap and MB would never stand for that. The entire ad is comical. It does not resemble any E60 I have ever seen before.

I am bold for this but it's a E320 with lots if Renntech goodies and a engine swap...

Nice car, but in Fresno...?


That area isn't exactly known for high end cars...

It might be an E60 it has the brakes but the interior sucks and its been beat to death.

For $4k or so, maybe if its really an E60. You could swap out the interior.

Arrow I own one

I have a 97 renntech e60 with red and black interior with about 42000 original miles. only problem i have is the alignment specs have the tires leaned in at the top causing excessive tire wear( told if i got 15000 miles out of them i would be doing good).
