'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.
I'd rather have a 2004 E55 AMG than a 2005 BMW ///M5. The 5-series is getting ugly.
Dream car, especially as a getaway or police car (better as a police chief car, though). 469 HP, 0-60 in 4.5 sec
The Camaro tried to make a getaway, but was quickly caught by a police chief in his E55.
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!
The E55 is the fastest sedan out right now, and is the REAL ultamate driving machine
