    E55 - Let discussion begin



    The most fascinating engines always have 8 cylinders. And they are even more impressive when they come from Mercedes-AMG and are supercharged by a compressor, like in the E 55 AMG. More than any other engine in its class, the AMG 5.5-liter V8 Kompressor engine offers you unlimited potential in any driving situation. 700 Nm of torque and 350 kW (476 HP) of power speak for themselves. Add to that the AMG SPEEDSHIFT(R) 5-speed automatic transmission and AMG steering-wheel gearshift. Quicker shifting, optimized shift points and active braking downshift ensure unsurpassed driving dynamics and driving pleasure.
    The E 55 AMG's performance record as well as its technology - e.g. the AMG sports suspension with AMG shock absorbers and AMG stabilizers based on semi-active air suspension AIRmatic DC, and the ESP(R) system customized to AMG specifications - mean optimum vehicle control at all times. The steel rear cross member with reinforced screw connections was customized to suit the E 55 AMG's exceptional driving-dynamic potential. Naturally that also applies to the AMG high-performance braking system, which was clearly developed on the basis of racetrack experience. Large, internally ventilated and perforated disc brakes with 8-piston fixed calipers in the front and 4-piston fixed calipers in the rear and SBCTM (Sensotronic Brake Control) ensure outstanding delay values.

    Within one year my C32 goes from being the fastest Mercedes sedan to the slowest AMG sedan. The E55 will be impressive, but not sure I like the brake-by-wire system I used on the E500. It drives you, not the other way around.

    Excellent idea is start an AMG board.
    Can't wait to drive the new E 55 - my friend in Germany drove
    it already - loved the car. But i'm not sure if this is the right
    driving machine for South Florida.

    Welcome Guys!

    Right now I'm on my way to the US and I don't have much time to fill this forum. In a few days, all older AMG threads will be moved to this forum and I might have one or two interesting things for AMG lovers too.

    BTW: controversial discussions are always welcomed as long as it doesn't end in flame wars. Thank you.
