2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
I thought it was time for a true sports car till I drove this hot rod. I've had the car 18 months and it has performed flawlessly, except I wore the rear tires off at 4,500 miles, but I guess that's my fault. I really like the exclusivity of the AMG package. Not quite the nimble handling of a BMW, but a more refined package overall. Fit and finish are first rate. Mine's Diamond Black and I get compliments on the color all the time. It's great to dust 350Z's Mustang GT's and other "quick" cars in my little sedan.
Power, AMG panache, Mercedes soldiness, the color, beautiful interior and wood trim.
Maybe a bit more to set it apart from other C class cars.
