I love this car! As a (former?) Porschephile I can appreciate the raw power and the usual German quality this car provides. It's a keeper. Sometimes the transmission seems to have a mind of its own as I find myself in manual mode at the strangest times. Maybe I'm hitting the paddle and not realizing it? The power is awesome, the low profile tires make it really handle well and the exterior is mundane enough as to not draw attention from the cops. What a deal!
Handbuilt, balanced and bluerinted motor. Multi-mode transmission. Ergonomically friendly interior.
Option out the turbo from the "E" version and make a real bad Benz!
I came out of a Porsche Boxster wanting something with four doors and performance. I did my homework and decided on the C55 AMG. I couldn't be more happier. It's faster than a Boxster and doesn't draw near the attention of a 2 seater sportscar. The tiptronic style transmission with the paddles on the steering wheel is nice but I usually simply put the car in "D". After 6 tanks of gas I'm averaging just over 20 MPG. Not too bad. The climate control works well and the cruise control and other "don't have to take you hands off the wheel" controls are perfect. The enterior as a whole is well done with the center glove box being adjustable up and down- nice touch- Awesome car
This car is outstanding! I have now owned the C55 AMG for over a year and I still am not tired one bit from driving it daily. The power is absolutly supurb, so great it can stay dead even with my Dodge Viper! The main reason I bought the C55 is not only because of its monstrous 362hp V8 but because it is very rare and unique. Today I still have not seen another one on the road! When you buy this car do not expect people to be taking pictures of the car out their windows, But Once in a while you will notice someone checking out the car. For the most part this car sleeps under the radar until you "OPEN HER UP" and let all the people around you hear the car's V8 roar.
Great V8 Power Impressive Torque Unique Design (AMG Bodykit, AMG Exhaust, 18" AMG Wheels and more...)
A manual transmission would give this car an extra boost of excitement.
What else could anyone want? Power, refinement, good visibility and a silver arrow on the hood! This car has provided thrills from day one! There are bigger and faster cars out there, but none right now that can compare in theis segment.(Sorry CTS-V and S4)
Exhaust note from a casual roll. Interior at night. Classy yet sporty but not in your face looks.(This is not an opion but a fact)
Gas mileage.(What can I expect) More aftermarket parts. Wider tires in the rear. An option for the V8 Kompressor in the E55.
The C55 AMG is a truly unique/special car. Its sleek look is extremely deceptive. The only problem I have with the car is the digital audio system by Harman/Kardon. The majority of the sound comes from the front, not the rear. Overall, the car is fantastic, and a vehicle I plan on keeping for several years. If you want a four-door beast, and at the same time, have all the luxury/performance you can handle, the C55 is for you.
