    Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG (W211) 2003-2006

    E55 AMG (20032006)

    The E55 AMG is powered by the M113 ML55 engine, a 5.4 L V8 with a Lysholm type supercharger manufactured by IHI. The E55's engine was tuned to 476 PS (350 kW; 469 hp) and 700 Nm (520 lbft), the low end of the supercharged 55 range due to its longer exhaust system, compared to the SL55 AMG's engine at the high end which made 517 PS (380 kW; 510 hp) and 720 Nm (530 lbft). Despite this, Car and Driver reported in their testing that the E55 AMG was faster than the SL55 AMG.The E55 AMG was the fastest four door car in Mercedes-Benz's lineup at the time, being quicker than the C32 AMG and S55 AMG, and it posts faster acceleration than the 2003 Brabus E V12 biturbo (verified by the Guinness Book of Records as the fastest saloon car in the world at the time) as well.

    The supercharged 5.4 L V8 engine was mated to the Speedshift 5-speed automatic transmission, which has a torque capacity of 796 lbft (1,079 Nm), as the newer 7G-Tronic introduced in 2003 is limited to 542 lbft (735 Nm), not enough to handle the torque from the supercharged V8.

    I think the first one is from the E55 AMG, but I'm not sure... It certainly looks different from the one that's seen in the picture of the interior a few posts above, but I think it may just be a different trim... Anyway, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    MoS has posted some E-Class photos, that name triggered me again.

    I have to admit that this E55 "not this actual car" is one of my heroes which I crave to own. They are obtainable, but they are so high maintenance. Which stills keeps me away from them.

    I was on the verge of selling my 850R, but ... but ...
    I'm telling myself that I'm over it, but ...

    Who knows.

    The only thing that gets me is that the M156 in the "63" Benz models released soon after this W211 is the most enjoyable engine I have ever used...
