Mercedes-Benz 300-560 Sedan/Coupe 1987-2006 - 2018 Market Review
Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG

Not much in this grouping is beyond the means of the average Benz-loving Aussie. However the bill to fix a major mechanical failure is another issue entirely.

Mercedes-Benz – and other brands – that are complex and laden with ancient electronics are disappearing at a rapid rate because owners cannot afford to keep them running.

Cars that are still viable are relatively cheap because buyers will be gambling on how long they will run before expiring in a puff of acrid smoke.

Best bang-for-buck is the C36, with a $20,000 CL500 on the list as well just to kid the neighbours you’ve won Lotto.

Excepting the E55, few in this grouping have any real prospects for long-term value growth.

300CE 1988-90 $8980 [11]

CL500 1996-98 $16,445 [16]

420SE/SEL 1987-90 $13,600 [10]

560SEL $7360 [6]

C32/C36 $17,960 [11]

E55 $27,600 [17]
