I wonder what the seller means by "AS IS".  Maybe it's got an engine problem...  Still, it's one of the nicest 451s ever made.

Probably tires / brakes etc.  To pass an e-test no engine lights can be on and has to pass diagnostic test - but you never know.

Numero uno for sale, 29,900 kms so it did a lot of sitting around.  Carfax shows it had a few owners.  For it to end up at a used car lot makes me think it was traded in at Mercedes and quickly wholesaled due to its age and them likely trying to distance themselves from smart cars nowadays.

Yes, they were a regular NA spec brabus (which they likely had to be for certification purposes)  the uniqueness was that they were specially done by the brabus custom shop which at the time was VERY expensive if you were to order one from them on your own, even just custom paint and interior like they were.  The 70hp was a limiting factor and most of them sat around for months/years unsold due to their cost of almost $40,000 from what I remember.  Most were heavily discounted in order to sell and I don't think Mercedes ever tried anything like that again lol.  Even with the brabus turbo engine they would have been a tough sell at that price!

If anyone can get the VIN for that #1 car, it would complete the Register :)

Car #1 VIN = WMEEJ31X19K222775

 

Also I think the serial number you have for car #2 might be wrong, carfax wont accept it.  The 9th digit is 1-9 for the others to load but car #2 is a no-go.

Thank you very much for the info on the Edition series cars.  The dark grey is very pretty with the tan interior, but the price would have been a big negative factor for me even had they been available in the states.

WMEEJ31X09K232651 is the VIN and the car was written off years ago, so it is indeed a correct VIN.  Thanks for the ID of number 1.

Thanks, found #2.  Car was written off February 2012 in Winnipeg with 34,900kms on it.  That said I "think" that may have only been the show car for Western Canada.  #1 may have been the show car for Eastern but not 100%.

That would be a regular BRABUS, not the "edit10n", which was customized at the BRABUS factory.
