Mercedes 300 E AMG "Hammer"
More Eighties than Tom Selleck bumping INXS on a BASF 90, the deliciously German 375bhp, 407lb ft 300 E AMG Hammer was a proper supercar killer in its day (1986, fact fans). You have two years till the 30th anniversary, Mercedes.
What the E63 Hammer needs:
- AMG five-spoke split-rim wheels
- Tyres with some sidewall
- Black leather seats with controls inconveniently located on the inside bolster
- Walnut, not carbon
- One of those awful four-spoke AMG steering wheels
- Pre-loaded Peter Gabriel and Human League MP3s
