The W211 Mercedes-Benz E-class replaced the W210 for the 2003 model year and continued through to the 2009 model year. It was the last E-class to maintain the classic Benz roundish headlamps (now they look like any Hyundai or Infiniti on the road) and today’s example has the fearsome supercharged V8 under the hood.

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.

This next car comes as a seller submission from AMG enthusiast and DT tipper Cory who writes; I don’t really want to sell it, but I currently have four Mercs so one of them needs to go. It is a exceptional driving car that I will miss for sure. Seeing I am not traveling hardly at all for work, I am going to enlist the new 1997 C36 6 speed into daily driving duties once I raise up the suspension a bit and swap out the wheels. DT Vince; Four late model Mercedes-Benzes…wow…that is living the dream. Catch up with Cory by buying his E55. Find this 1999 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG offered for $7500 in Norwalk, CT via craigslist.
This next car almost got thrown to the bottom of DT’s email trash bin because it didn’t look like much. The wheels are too flashy, the seats are ripped, and the paint is flaking like a Texas sunburn, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a C43 with an E55 engine swap. The original 1998-2000 C43 AMG was a capable and fun with its 4.3 liter 306 horsepower V8 — but shoving the 5.4 liter V8 from the E55 AMG for 349 horsepower should be a nice upgrade without ruining the car’s character.

This next car comes as a tip from Jeff who writes; Slick wagon, assuming you trust the shop that did the work. I’m not as concerned about the quality of the swapper as I am about the signs of the tin worm from life in the rust belt…is D.C. in the rust belt? Maybe the proximity […]

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.

The W210 E55 AMG sedan is a supremely capable people hauler, but what about the guy with 5 kids or 3 kids and a few dogs? Sure, you could step up to the RL63 AMG, but the W251 platform cars are expensive and suffer from the reliability/brand-whoring of the Daimler-Chrysler era…but it would be better […]
Mercedes-Benz redefined executive class performance when it released the E55 AMG in 1999 for the US Market. Sure, BMW’s M5 had been around for a few generations, but it was sabre with manual gearboxes that tempted its driver to carve up corners. The AMG was a hammer, a big tire smoking cudgel meant to bludgeon […]
