2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
A relative bought a C32 three years ago and I've been lusting after a similar car since. Drove the GTO - performance but not enough luxury. Drove the Acura RL - luxury but not enough performance. The C55 is a perfect blend. Needed a sedan to fit the grandkids. Needed an automatic to satisfy the wife. Did I compromise? Not in my book. I have a huge grin on my face every time I get in the C55 and fire up that big v8!
