    Default Mercedes E550

    Take Mercedes Benz’ sterling E-class lineup of luxury sedans, drop the 5.5 liter DOHC 382 horsepower V-8 from the S-class under the E’s hood and the result is quite simply an awesome automobile.

    All of the E-class models get a thorough revision for 2007 with new front and rear end looks, lots of safety, performance and engineering improvements under the skin and the upgraded engine that bumps last year’s E500 to the E550 designation.

    But way more than mere designations get bumped up in the process. The E-550 weighs two tons and is thus no lightweight, but with all those ponies, plus the 391 pound-feet of torque that accompany them, you get the kind of acceleration that is normally associated only with explicitly high performance models.

    Think of 0-60 mph in 5.37 seconds and you’re into Corvette/Pontiac GTO/Mustang Cobra territory, right? That’s the time my silver E-550 Sport turned in over and over again. And with a seven-speed automatic transmission to boot! I kept looking in the trunk, behind the rear seats and under the floor mats for the AMG signs that some Benz flak obviously removed just before delivering my tester!

    Tragically, I didn’t get to spend any time in the E-550 at the race track to sample its triple-digit velocity capabilities but the neck-stiffening surge from 55 mph to 100+ was more than sufficient to convince me this Benz would have no trouble pacing all but the swiftest of the Autobahn’s swift.

    What can you do with such a vehicle if you have to drive it every day? Well, you could be delighted beyond any sane serious driver’s most exotic automotive dreams for one thing because the E-550 is extraordinarily fast and comfortable at the same time. Ride quality in around-town driving is never bothersome and the passenger cabin combines an unexpectedly plush atmosphere with the usual Teutonic emphasis on efficiency and complexity.

    Five full-size adults can be transported in bountiful accommodations by the E-550 and they will all be cosseted by such niceties as heated and cooled seats. The four-spoke steering wheel and chromed shift knob may look familiar to some because they are borrowed from the SL550 (which curiously didn’t seem as stupendously fast as the sedan).

    Being a Benz, the E-550 doesn’t come cheap. Expect to go well beyond the $59,000 base price.

    Mercedes E550 -676773


    Mercedes E550 -676774


    Mercedes E550 -676775



    The hand built V8 put outs 514 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque resulting in a 0-62MPH sprint of 4.5 seconds. The AMG sports suspension based on the semi-active air suspension system AIRMATIC DC includes the Adaptive Damping System ADS II and allows the driver to choose between more comfortable or very sporty handling characteristics. The shock absorbers and springs instantly adapt to the current driving situation, but can also be manually modified in three stages at the touch of a button. The 8.5 and 9.0-inch wide, titanium grey, high-sheen 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a new five-spoke design are fitted with wide-base tires in size 245/40 and 265/35.

    The new AMG wheels are not the only distinguishing feature of the E 63 AMG. A lasting impression is also created by the new, heavily contoured AMG front apron, large air dams and round foglamps with chrome surrounds. Heat from the integral, additional engine oil cooler integrated into the front bumper is able to dissipate via air vents in the sides. This top-of-the-line E-Class model is also immediately identifiable by the "6.3 AMG" lettering on the front wings. Dynamic side skirts, tinted rear light clusters in a new design and a redesigned AMG rear apron for the Saloon impressively round off the visual impact. Both visually and acoustically, the AMG sports exhaust system with its two twin chrome tailpipes underlines the dynamic character of the E 63 AMG.
