From standstill the new C 55 AMG accelerates to 100 km/h in only 5.2 seconds, and guarantees sporty driving pleasure at the highest level with its standard sports suspension and five-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel gearshift buttons and AMG Speedshift.

With its new, extended front section and its punchy tail, the C 55 AMG displays a confidence and character all its own. The bonnet, wings, headlamps, radiator grille and rear end are all distinctively styled, and are combined with the standard-specification AMG bodystyling and boot lid spoiler lip (Saloon version only). The new AMG sports exhaust system with two twin chrome-plated tailpipes is not only striking in appearance, it also produces a distinctive V8 sound which gives added dynamic edge to this new AMG model.

The sportier attire is echoed in the luxurious interior, too. New nappa leather AMG sports seats with alcantara inserts at shoulder level - a design which is reprised on the outer rear seats - provide optimal lateral support. The driving area meanwhile boasts a new instrument cluster with four classic-style circular gauges, a speedometer calibrated up to 320 km/h and an AMG sports steering wheel with steering-wheel shift buttons.

The standard specification of the C 55 AMG includes Thermatic automatic climate control, a power-operated glass tilting/sliding sunroof and aluminium linea trim (as an alternative, dark bird's eye maple can be supplied). Door sills in brushed stainless steel with AMG logo complete the stylishly dynamic interior ambience.
