Cheaper With Mods: 2001 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG

The W210 chassis was marketed by Mercedes-Benz with the as the E-class from 1995-2002. It offered an expensive and elite ride for the wealthy and well-to-do. Mercedes offered some versions with 6-cylinder engines where the E stands for executive, but in 1998 the E for eggads my spleen just ruptured AMG version was released. Today’s version is cosmetically modified with some interesting choices, but the price is right. Find this 2001 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG offered for $5,800 in Arrowhead Lakes, AZ via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

I have owned and pampered this car for 9 years. It drives like the racing machine it was designed to be. You can see from the photos, the original AMG wheels have been powder coated. The original seat covering has been replaced with a faux ostrich. The thermostat and water pump were recently replaced and it blows nice cold air. I have included the VIN# so it can be confirmed there have been no accidents.

Full Disclosure

The paint has some minor blemishes

One of the aftermarket brake lights is sporadic (maybe a loose wire)

The heated seats and lower lumbar support controls are inoperable.

I still love the car and will miss its power. I just got a whim for something newer.

See a better way to drive something black and modified?
