Y ou may wonder why replaced E50 AMG after only one service. Not because it has any flaw. Not it sells badly. In fact, Mercedes launched its new generation of 24 valves V8s, the old V8 production are to be closed so that E50 AMG’s must be replaced.

As usual, the E-class uses an upgrade of the biggest V8 available in the company. engineers picked the new 5-litre V8, to 5439c.c. (which give the of this car), adopted pistons, lightweight and fast-timing strengthened the crankcase to cope the increased torque, used new with lower back the result is 354 horsepower and 391lbft of easily enable 0-60 mph in 5.5 sec thanks to the relatively lightweight of kg), although top speed is to 155mph by electronic device.

Like S6, the E55 feels home at Autobahn, its steering becomes precise at speed. Directional stability is superb.

Despite of the lightning performance and handling, E55 AMG isn’t as satisfying to as the M5, especially it is not available with a transmission. Real car enthusiasts love manual, don’t
