    I asked Classic Benz this question when looking at one he had. Only 12 was his answer.

    I'm trying to recall the split of saloons and estates - I see to rember it's something like 80 estates.

    I thought there was only 7 E36T???

    I'll have a look to see if I can find the answers as an ex MB employee recently gave me the 124 production figures for each country.

    What is surprising is how common 4 -matics are in relation to the AMGs- after all the 4 - matic commanded a thumping 6k premium with very little visual difference and iirc no additional equipment other than the 4wd.
    Also only 20 each per year of the S65s- makes them rarer than the SLR!

    Was that the 200k+ one he sold for pennies?

    Yup, that's the one. Went for under 2 grand :eek:. Ok needed about a grands worth of bodywork to be done to bring it up to MINT condition. Engine wise, puuurrrfect.

    The extreme rarity of the E36s is puzzling -other rare Mercs seem to have sold well in relation - which also were available only for a short run
