Good question...

I think the W124's with the 3.6 liter AMG engine were super rare, beyond even the 500E, so rarity would be one thing you get. Less power, less torque. Weight was probably not too far off since I think the inline-6 block was still iron, while the V8 was aluminum, but the 500E was still probably heavier.

Probably just a slightly stiffer, lighter, not quite as powerful version of the 500E.

They are quite pretty cars, even in rare coupe variant:
