Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG was a game-changing super-saloon produced from 1995 through to 2002 and sold under the E-Class model name in both saloon and estate body types. The body styling on all of the W210 AMG models was the same until 2000 when a facelift was implemented. The W210 E55 was the last vehicle for which a major portion of production took place at AMG in Affalterbach. 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.
