The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a range of executive cars manufactured in various engine and body configurations. Produced since 1993, the E-Class falls mid-range in the Mercedes line-up, and has been marketed worldwide across five generations. Launched in 2002, the W211 E-Class was another evolution of the previous model and was face-lifted in June 2006 for the 2007 model year to address quality and technical issues raised by earlier models. The largest factory built engine in the E-class range is the E500 which had its engine size increased from 5 litres to 5.5 litres in 2006 along with the facelift.
This Mercedes-Benz is finished in Alabaster White which is complemented by Anthracite Black leather interior. Specification includes electrically adjustable front seats with memory, command DVD with satellite navigation and an electric sunroof. Aesthetically, the E55 AMG is a handsome car with the front spoiler and side skirts giving the car a slightly more aggressive stance. Power is delivered via a 5430cc, V8 supercharged engine which is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, performance on this 469bhp saloon is certainly brisk with the top speed restricted to 155mph (where permitted). Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 17th April 2020, this Mercedes-Benz is surely a future classic and an extremely enjoyable one to drive.
