This facelift W210 E55 AMG estate has had just one owner from new until 2018 together with Full Mercedes-Benz Service history. There is no doubt that this remains an incredible machine – luxurious, practical but with tremendous performance from its 354bhp 5.4-litre V8.
This E55 is finished in the classic Brilliant Silver with black perforated leather interior. We have listed the car’s full specification below, which is full as you’d expect on an AMG, featuring COMAND (integrated Sat Nav, phone prep and hifi), orthopaedic/heated/memory seats, climate control and Bose sound system.
Purchased new by a gentleman in Central London as a practical stablemate to his Ferrari, the AMG quickly got under his skin thanks to its smoothness, discrete appearance, practicality and, of course performance. He kept the car 18 years and covered 221k miles before we acquired it this year. From new, the car was looked after by Mercedes Brentford in West London with no expense spared. Even every MoT has been carried out by the main dealer.
In addition to the service books (it’s now on its second), there is a vast folder of receipts from Mercedes detailing all the work that’s been carried out over the years. An incredible amount of money has been spent. Over recent years the car has had new headlamps, new AMG rear silencer, new suspension components, new timing chain and so on. In addition it had an £8000 repaint a few years ago. It wears matching ‘MO’ rated Pirelli P Zeroes fitted at the main dealer.
We have just carried out a further service and a transmission fluid and filter change, and replaced the rear suspension spheres. Two remote keys and HPI clear.
We have covered 3000 miles in the car since acquiring it and enjoyed them greatly. It is a very comfortable place to travel exceedingly quickly!
As the photos show this E55 is very tidy and smart. Of course given the mileage, age and price there are some imperfections. The body has a few bubbles, mainly to the rear doors, the alloys are a little scratched (but perfectly round) and the front tyres need replacing. There’s a little bit of wear to the interior, as you’d expect, and the A/C doesn’t blow cold. But nothing that will stop the next owner using and enjoying the car.
Long MoT until March 2019.
The W210 E55 AMG has started to become collectable of late. It’s the very essence of what AMG does – an iron fist in a velvet glove. Of the cars produced by Affalterbach, the facelift estate is the most desirable of the lot.
Whilst this car has high mileage its provenance and history are as good as it gets and it must be the cheapest way into a proper AMG car.
