Lot 232 - 2000 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Saloon
|Odometer reading||49,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £9,520|
The W210 is an executive car produced from 1995 through to 2002 and sold under the E-Class model name in both saloon and estate body types. AMG installed four engines in the W210; the body styling on all of the W210 AMG models was the same until 2000 when a facelift was implemented. The W 210 E55 was the last vehicle for which a major portion of production took place at AMG in Affalterbach. Production was actually split between Affalterbach and the Bremen Mercedes-Benz facility until the end of 2001. Output of the E55 AMG was some 354bhp with a torque figure of 391ft/lb which propelled it from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds with a limited top speed of 155mph.
Offered in the very rare, unmarked, Designo Silver with a contrasting black leather interior, this E55 AMG has covered less than 50,000 miles from new. It resided in a dry climate in Japan until 2015 when the current owner imported the car into the UK; this, importantly, means no rust. Purchased in Japan from an established auction house, this E55 was graded 4.5B, the highest grade a vehicle such as this could achieve. Accompanying this car are original AMG booklets and a service history boasting 12 service stamps carried out at 9,000km, 16,000km, 20,000km, 24,000km, 28,000km, 36,000km, 39,000km, 41,000km, 43,000km, 50,000km and 59,000km. This E55 AMG Sport is described by the vendor as pristine and is one of the rare and desirable Mercedes-Benz facelift examples built in 2000; it certainly is one of the best available in the UK.
