The C55 signified a return to AMG’s V8 roots, after barely a three-year flirtation with a supercharged V6. AMG found 8,100 homes for the C32, but the AMG engineers seemed much happier now that there was a serious, big-capacity, naturally aspirated 5.4 litre V8 powering the meatiest C-Class and the badge is there to, well, to ensure the owners don’t forget. It is not the performance, AMG claimed 5.2 seconds to 62mph for both C55 and C32, or even the transformation to a deep, wonderfully muscular exhaust note, but the makeover in the dynamics that stood the new sports saloon apart. The C55 marked a small, but perceptible, shift towards a sharper, more sporting focus, that set it closer to the M3 than any previous AMG hot-rod C-Class.
Imported from Japan, this low mileage  immaculate example is presented in metallic silver with black leather interior, including AMG embossed on the front seats. It comes with electric glass sunroof, cruise control, climate control, heated electric seats, Xenon headlights and electric folding mirrors. The owner has just had the car serviced and it comes with a guarantee mileage certificate. This is a superb example of this ‘pocket rocket’ model and it still provides terrific performance from its lively V8 – accompanied by its trademark great and brutish exhaust note!
