Get one while the Gettin’ is Good: Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Wagon

I think I may mentioned that we here at are closet station wagon In fact, it is mentioned at least here. and here. Station (or “Estate Cars”, if you please) the best of both worlds in of practical motoring: the stance of a with the utility of a truck. I want, though, is a Super

My wife and I have owned station wagons over the including a Saab 9-5, 850 Turbo, BMW 528iTm, Mercedes E320 4Matic, and currently her driver is a 2005 Mercedes E320 4Matic. The current car is to my eye one of the looking wagons on the U.s. even if it has since been with a newer model. in mind that on this of the pond our station wagon are very limited. The only lacking in our car, which is very well equipped navigation, heated dynamic moonroof, yadda, yadda, is . While not especially slow by standards, it’s no rocketship, So I have been trying to my wife that we need one of a Mercedes-Benz S211 E55 wagon. this example here on in Portland, Oregon for $34,995 .

The E320 came from the with just 221hp, made for a leisurely jaunt 0-60mph in about 8 seconds in AWD with a top speed electronically to 130mph. Fifteen years ago would have been strong numbers, today are lackluster at best. The station represent only about 1/6 of 211-chassis production, and are therefore rare, at least on these Far more rare are the AMG wagons, with production totaling 193 for the E55 wagon and 129 for the E63 wagon. Unless you in a well-to-do area, the chances of spotting one of these rarities are to none. These beauties the attractive S211 body and it with the AMG-modified motor and (either 5.5 liter supercharged or 6.3 naturally aspirated) to create one of the powerful

production wagons ever. Our is on the supercharged 5.5 (denoted by the word on its flanks) which develops 516 lb-ft torque, and delivers from a dead stop in a 4.7 seconds all the way to the electronically limited top of 155mph – although with removed there are reports in the range.

The E55 wagon’s styling is overall subtle for a supercar – it has ground and low-profile wheels, along the aforementioned fender badging, but it looks remarkably like the of the S211 range – which is a thing. It also makes the car of a sleeper – I was fortunate enough to one of these as a press car in California a few back and I recall tearing the Five at, well, above speed limits, when a in a Dodge Charger SRT-8 he wanted to play. He probably really “decide” it, rather he expect a challenge, which was what he got. Now I am not necessarily of taking my life in my hands at speeds on I-5, but I made my quite clearly. He finally up. I am not advocating this behaviour, and please don’t try this at The fact of the matter is that cars look like cars and drive like If that’s your bag (and it is – sometimes), then they a look.

I guess this all begs the of what I need it for. Our car is competent, and if I wanted to go faster, why not upgrade to the far more common wagon – which is also with all wheel drive the E55 was not? It’s a little bit ego and a bit exclusivity – I like ot drive, as my beloved, and this car offers an driving experience now for 1/3 the cost of a new one is coming to the US, surprisingly). Beyond it retains the practicality, comfort, and seating for seven that we come to love in our lesser so what’s the catch? People upwards of $40,000 for Toyota these days, which a $35,000 supercar with SUV capacity a bargain – and I want All that said, the AMG wagons often come to

market, and those that do be very thoroughly evaluated, so get one the getting is good!
