This 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG is a beautiful all original example, showing only 33,400 miles. The condition is excellent across the board both mechanically and cosmetically, it's one of the cleanest C43s we've seen in a long time. The exterior is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic, and the interior is Condor Black & Silver leather, an extremely aesthetic and desired combination.
Powered by an AMG tuned 4.3L V8 engine producing 302hp at 5,850rpm, and 302ft-lb torque at 3,250rpm, this C43 boasts impressive performance for the era. Mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission, the car is able to perform as a smooth cruiser, but has plenty of power at the ready, achieving 0-60mph times in just under 6 seconds.
The interior is finished in the desired silver and black leather seats, with the silver leather accent also extending to the steering wheel. Black carpeting and doors, accented with wood trim that also extends to the center console. The interior pillars are covered with dark blue soft top fabric that reaches to the rear deck lid. A very comfortable cabin space complemented by the factory upgraded Bose sound system.
Recently fully serviced, this C43 is ready to drive with no outstanding issues. The car shows a clean Carfax report with no signs of any accidents, regularly maintained with only 2 previous owners. The suspension is tight and sporty when needed, a factory upgrade from the standard C-Class consisting of slightly higher-rate springs and stiffer Bilstein shocks. The factory staggered 17" AMG wheels are fitted with Michelin Pilot SX tires, 225/45ZR17 in the front, and 245/40ZR17 in the rear.
Some of the original options include fully adjustable and heated electric front seats, rain sensor, sunroof, electronic stability (ESP), automatic climate control, headlight cleaning unit with wipers, xenon headlights, AMG front spoiler and skid skirts, leather interior, power windows, factory rolled fenders, sport equipment package, factory Bose sound system package, original factory first aid kit, anti-theft system, dark blue soft top fabric accents, and adjustable steering column.
The car will also come with the original C43 AMG leather pouch, containing the Service Manual, Vehicle Care Guide, Radio Operation Guide, Owner's Service and Warranty Information pamphlet, Quick Tips pamphlet, Service Booklet, 1997 Dealers Directory, and Radio Code Card.
