The Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG has a very powerful 5.4-liter (5439 cc) supercharged V8 petrol engine. This engine can produce up to 469 hp (350 kW) at 6100 rpm and up to 520 lbs-ft (720 Nm) of torque at 2650 rpm.

The car is very quick and it is a mean machine. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.4 seconds. It can reach 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in only 16 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

This Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG 4-door sedan is faster than the SL55 AMG, S55 AMG and C32 AMG. At its time, the car was the fastest 4-door car in Mercedes-Benz’s lineup.

The E-class W211 Mercedes has a wheelbase of 112.4 inches (2855 mm). Its length is 189.7 inches (4818 mm), width is 71.7 inches (1821 mm), and height is 57 inches (1448 mm).

The Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG in the picture above is on 19 inches Vossen VVSCV3 Matte Silver Machined wheels. These beautiful wheels features sizes at the front – 19×8.5 and at the rear – 19×10.0.

Competitive models for this Mercedes-Benz are: BMW E60 M5, Brabus E V12.

The Mercedes looks good. It has a lot of power and its price is not that high either. Since the car comes with a rear-wheel-drive system, you have to respect its power when you make a corner, because it’s really easy to make your wheels lose traction (with all safety features off). Its 5-speed automatic transmission is quick and smooth, and the car is made for good driving all the time.

The original price (MSRP) for a base Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG W211 model was set at around 75,000-78,000 USD ($), for 2003-2006 models, back in 2003-2006. Price in 2013, for the 2006 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG with an average of 85,000 miles on it starts from around 19,000 USD ($).
