I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS MACHINE.FAR
BETTER THAN ANY EXPECTATIONS I HAD SINCE
I FIRST TEST DROVE IT FEW MONTHS AGO.ITS
BROUGHT BACK THE JOY OF DRIVING FOR ME.
SO FAR EVERYTHING IS PERFECT EXCEPT THE
GAS MILEAGE-BUT ITS WOTH IT.
I first drove this car at the AMG
challenge at Daytona last May. It was
an 8 hour opportunity to try (beat on)
all the AMG models. With pro drivers
riding shotgun we took these cars to
the limit. From the SLK55 to the big
S55 the available power and superb
handling was like nothing I'd ever
experienced before. I decided the E55
AMG was the one for me and I couldn't
be happier. I find excuses to drive it.

can't be beat.

accelerates at any speed. I find the
cars style, size and comfort to be
nearly perfect. My only complaint
after 1300 miles, goes to the
complexity of the controls for the
audio, A/C, gauges, etc. If you loan
the car to a friend, there is little
chance they could figure out what
button would open the garage door, or
how to lower the head rests in the
But let us not dwell on that
complexity problem. This car is an
extrodinary blend of comfort, speed,
handling, and styling. I believe this
car is nearly perfect.
Horsepower and torque. Solid and
quiet, even at 130 mph.
