Dream car, especially as a getaway or police car (better as a police chief car, though). 469 HP, 0-60 in 4.5 sec

Is the best sport sedan out as said by EVERY automagazine contrary to what some bud lite drunks think. It beat the M5, an Audi, and a Jaguar. It goes 0-60 as fast as some ferraris like the 355 spider(in 4.6 sec.), and has more horsepower than ANY Bimmer out. It does not need a manual because it goes crazy fast with an auto and will go even faster with a seven speed. it also is worth the money is costs with genuine wood trim lots o leg room and other Mercedes specialties, in other words EVERYTHING you need!

Mercedes-Benz's response to the threat of the BMW M5. The first generation E55 had only 350hp, from a 5.5-liter v8, compared to the M5's 400hp from a 5.0-liter v8. For the current model, AMG had to add a supercharger to boost hp to 470+. Some say the car's frame is too weak for the engine, though.
