The MB Market Insights
The gift that keeps on giving: the W210 E55 AMG. These W210 AMG’s are continuing to trend upwards both in popularity and value. The 1999 models are certainly rarer than the 2000-2002 model years and seem to carry just a little more pre-merger leftovers by way of design and styling. If you've spent any time hunting for a W210 E55, you probably have realized that unmodified examples are getting progressively more difficult to find. The naturally aspirated M113 paired to a 722.6 transmission is arguably the best V8 pairing Mercedes offered by means of reliability, performance, and longevity. There’s also something to be said for the fact this E55 isn't black or silver. The rarely seen Glacier White only adds to the appeal. From the recent maintenance to the gorgeous aesthetics of the E55, this is a car that can be driven and enjoyed while earning respect from enthusiasts from all walks.
