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 W210 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.
These high-performance AMG saloons have become enormously popular of late and good quality examples are particularly desirable. This low mileage example in rare white with a black leather interior benefits from being a full EU specification facelift car and was imported from Japan in 2016. Since then it has been owned and cherished by its only UK owner who describes the car as stunning. An Aventgarde specification example extras include heated rear seats, rear blind, air conditioning and sunroof together with the automatic/steptronic gearbox; the private registration plate is also included in the sale. The history file shows a service history with an MoT test certificate valid until July 2019, UK V5 certificate and, with four new tyres, this E55 is a collectable and desirable example from a pre Mercedes-AMG era - something appreciated by modern classic enthusiasts.
