European AMG road trip
Last summer we decided to do a European road trip and combining it with a holiday was the perfect excuse to take our 1994 W124 E60 AMG Limited. The E60 AMG Limited is a very rare car being only 1 of 12 with the factory option codes 957 (AMG technology package) and code 958 (limited edition package). This particular car had spent most of its life in Austria before we purchased the car for a client, who later part exchanged it back to us.
The car was serviced and checked over before leaving to make sure all was in order, so after filling the boot to capacity and four people on board we were ready to set off on our road trip/holiday adventure. The itinerary had been planned,first stop was Dijon France, then onto Interlaken Switzerland, Lake Como Italy, St Tropez France and Barcelona Spain.
After thirteen days and 3,600km at 22 mpg we headed across Spain to Santander to catch the ferry back to the UK. As you would expect the car ran faultlessly feeling just as at home in the Alps tackling endless hairpin bends as it did pounding the motorway network of Europe. All in all we feel the E60 AMG Limited is one of the best, if not the best all round Mercedes-Benz of modern times!
