The 2004 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Started the Horsepower Wars

The Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG (W211) is an excellent high-performance sedan. Today I'm reviewing a 2004 E55 AMG to show you all around it, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the E55 AMG. Then I'm going to drive the Mercedes E55 AMG and tell you what it's like on the road.

    Those really do have some quirks and features, I rode in one of these when I was 13 it was brand new, I remember being jealous of my friends rich Dad and his e55 amg, the guy also had a 1990 Ferrari, he told me the Mercedes was way faster and I was a kid so I thought he was yanking my chain! How could a Benz beat a Ferrari?

    I own a '04 E55, but the guy that owned it before me took out the original stereo and center cup holders and put really dark tinting on the back windows... I'll never forgive him for this heresy.

    Also, the passenger storage compartment under the seat is were the First Aid kit originally went, and that trunk latch attaches to the top of the trunk so if you're getting something out of the bottom compartment the top flap won't get in your way.

    BMW "beat it" for approximately 2-3 years until their e60's showed their true colors and now they are an automotive meme.

    I had one of theses for about a year, Initially fell in love with the power train, but getting more used to it, i started to notice more of the cars short comings. I could never learn to like the headlights, the hood is massive, no locking diff. It has a hard time putting the power down in anything other than a straight line.. Handling/airmatic and slow auto on this is its major Achilles heel. Nice interior though. I swapped mine for an e39 M5, and although down on power, it is the complete package, never looked back.

    I am on my 3rd cup holder in my CLK. It’s not the exact same one is that it’s the one that pops up and then you press the button and the side expands to have a passenger couple older those always fucking break too...

  39. Andrew Motta

    Andrew Mottaחודש לפני

    I have a very weird taste in cars first I am always an American car enthusiast second I am a Mercedes-Benz/euro car Enthusiast I own three cars all of them very different. I have the CLK 55 cabriolet from the generation before. This will be my next AMG you find me a car that’s from the early 2000s that still works modern today. That’s the thing about Mercedes Benz Kenseal a.k.a. from the 90s and it doesn’t really look that auto place where as if you put a Cadillac from the 90s it would look really long in the tooth. Some of the most beautiful body lines of ever seen on a car I fucking love the class

    Well, this really wasn't the car to start the horsepower war. The Audi RS6 C5 (which was available as a sedan back then) came out in 2002 and that had 450PS and the "Plus" version of that car had in excess of 480PS. You draw a conclusion from this

    The sun roof cover has those slats in it because you can just raise the rear of the sunroof up to let in a little air without having to open the entire thing. My S500 has it too!

  86. Eddie Manougian

    Eddie Manougian3 חודשים לפני

    I believe the lines in the sunroof cover is to allow hot air to escape when the vehicle is parked with the sunroof popped up. Since hot air rises it escapes through those lines and keeps the interior cooler. This is just a theory though lol.

    The slats or vents in the sunroof cover are to allow air to pass through when you have the sunroof in the tilted "vent" position.
