The second generation Mercedes E55 AMG debuted in September 2002 at the Paris Motor Show. It was a game-changing super-saloon which debuted as the fastest production sedan in the world. The E55 AMG was also offered in an estate version for later model years.
The E55 AMG is powered by the M113 ML55 engine, a 5.4L V8 with a Lysholm type supercharger, manufactured by IHI. The E55’s engine won International Performance Engine of the Year for 2003. Although it shares the same engine as the SL55 AMG, it has less horsepower, at 476 PS and 516 lb⋅ft of torque. the difference in power is due to a smaller-diameter, longer-length exhaust system in the E55.
The E55’s supercharged 5.4 L V8 engine was mated to the Speedshift 5-speed automatic transmission, which has a torque capacity of 796 lb⋅ft, as the newer 7G-Tronic introduced in 2003 is limited to 542 lb⋅ft, not enough to handle the torque from the supercharged V8.
Car and Driver reported in their testing that the E55 AMG was faster than the SL55 AMG. It had become the fastest four door car in Mercedes-Benz’s lineup at the time, and easily outperformed its rivals. While the E55 could accelerate from 0-100 mph in 9.8 seconds, it took the Audi RS6 11 seconds. The E55 was the fastest production sedan available until Mercedes-Benz released the S65 AMG.
The E55 was a sales success, being the best selling AMG until the release of the C63 AMG.
Our E55 AMG has only covered 33,200 miles from new and comes finished in beautiful Alabaster White contrasted with an Anthracite Black Leather interior. It is equipped with electrically adjustable front seats with memory, electric tilt and slide glass sunroof, command DVD with navigation and automatic climate control.
