The W211 E55 AMG became more than just a worthy successor of the W210. It helped define the direction of modern performance luxury sedans. Perhaps the most notable feature was the addition of the supercharger to the already legendary M113 engine. For anyone who has not yet experienced the thrill of driving a M113k-powered AMG, it’s an experience that becomes addicting with locomotive power as the supercharger whines. While W211 E55 AMG’s aren’t exactly rare in this market, examples that are low mileage, clean, and later year models like this aren’t easy to find and finding one topping an original $90k MSRP are even rarer. These cars continue to feel as solid as the day they were built and are sure to engage driver’s for another two decades.
