    Funny, I'd suggest that is actually the first of the modern AMG's being offered after AMG had become a subsidiary of MB.

    Could you walk into a Mercedes Dealer and order one of these?

    That aside, it shows how things have progressed in 20 years.

    At around 280hp this was a fast car. Look what a current AMG C Class produces.

    EDIT:- I just read that these were disassembled C280 that were finished and taken off the production line then built by AMG so I guess you are right that it was the last real one.

    The C43AMG came ready made on a production line, so that would be the first of the new ones I guess.

    The 280bhp in the '36 felt faster than the 306bhp in the '43 but that's possibly more down to its revvy nature.

    I owned both models at the same time and id go for the C43 if I had a long journey ahead and the C36 if I just wanted to go out for a blast.

    Both great cars but for me, and because it was my first AMG, the C36 just shades it.

    Cool car, been up for sale forever and a day.

    Like the C43 on here, these 202's take their time in finding new keepers.

    Probably early onset Alzheimers Lee considering that took 5 months to sink in.
