Looking back to the 6.8-liter 300SEL "Rote Sau" and through the present, AMG-powered S-Classes have always set the standards for comfort, design, innovation, and most importantly, speed. These S55's were launched in 2001 and boasted the handbuilt AMG M113 V8; an already stout engine made into an absolute monster by the mad scientists at Affalterbach. It's nice to see these W220's getting the recognition they once achieved when new by a growing enthusiast base. We've seen a few W220 S55s come to market here over the past year and prices are clearly heating up as they still represent a huge value, offering premium luxury and performance in one striking package.
