You can pick up a 2010 Benz E550 coupe for around $15K. 382 hp, it’s on the C-class chassis so compared to the sedan it’s 250 lbs lighter, 2 inches shorter wheelbase, and sits an inch and a half lower. Swap out the grill for a single blade, people mistake mine for a new car all the time. In five years I’ve only had to do the starter and a couple of electric motors in the interior (there are so. many. electric motors in that interior, the thing might be a Transformer).
