The Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG (W211) is an excellent high-performance sedan. Today I'm reviewing a 2004 E55 AMG to show you all around it, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the E55 AMG. Then I'm going to drive the Mercedes E55 AMG and tell you what it's like on the road.

  • I have a c32 and would say this car launched the hp battle. It was pretty insane for a v6 and took out almost every car of it's time.

  • You missed the toilet seats under the seat cushions. These work great for when you step on the gas and soil yourself. The stored waste can then be loaded into the poo cannon so that you may fire your fecal matter at the smelly homeless walking on the sidewalks.

  • Don't understand why he didn't do more acceleration clips. What was the point of talking about the power and only showing it once for 3 seconds. He has never done that with any other car especially a performance car

  • Well, this really wasn't the car to start the horsepower war. The Audi RS6 C5 (which was available as a sedan back then) came out in 2002 and that had 450PS and the "Plus" version of that car had in excess of 480PS. You draw a conclusion from this

  • The sun roof cover has those slats in it because you can just raise the rear of the sunroof up to let in a little air without having to open the entire thing. My S500 has it too!

    TheDamienwashereTheDamienwasherePřed 2 měsíci
  • I believe the lines in the sunroof cover is to allow hot air to escape when the vehicle is parked with the sunroof popped up. Since hot air rises it escapes through those lines and keeps the interior cooler. This is just a theory though lol.

  • The sunroof "vents" are likely there to prevent excessive buildup of heat between the cover and the glass panel.

  • You scored it all wrong Doug, this is a way better car then BMW M5 in so many ways, should've been 70+

  • The slats or vents in the sunroof cover are to allow air to pass through when you have the sunroof in the tilted "vent" position.

  • Whole front armrest redesign with cup holders replaced with simpler inserts in later models. Mine an '08, Bluetec. (diesel). Looked through most comments...many covered the roof shade vents, 2-3 the 2nd "pen" holder for tire gauge, I always used the pouch in glove box for registration & insurance not bus cards, think the segmented tray in rear arm rest is just for any various small items not bus. cards spec. I speculate the releases for rear ashtrays also function as shields to keep ash from going back of mechanism. Don't know if those are real chromed metal, if so also guard against burns from lit tip, mine are black plastic. controlled

  • Fun fact: you could get the e55 without amg pakage on the outside. So no visible exhausts, no sportier front bumper, no bigger wheels. Only a small V8 Kompressor badge. Talk about sleepers lol.

  • 9:35 The holes are there, so you can open the sunroof without opening the sun visor, so you can get fresh air from the top without being blinded by the sun. *inserts think about it meme*

  • what about w211 e63?

    bQbQPřed 2 měsíci
    • He said the e63 engine is unreliable. Not sure if that's true but there are certainly some differences because the e55 has an AMG-modded engine from the W211 E500 while the e63 has some hand-crafted engine developed by AMG themselves. Also the e63 has less tourque because it's not supercharged.

  • Over engineered on some levels but under engineered on others. Lots of cheap breakable plastics and they rust like hell. Build quality nowhere near an audi RS6/S6 of the same period. Audi RS6 was just as powerful and with 4 wheel drive it was also faster (I've had both cars)

    S SS SPřed 3 měsíci
  • As an E55 AMG owner I cringe so hard at this guy struggling to explain the car without even knowing what he’s talking about, btw the holes in the sunroof cover is ventilation so you can have the sunroof open but still the cover closed. For anyone that got questions about the car feel free to write a comment. I’ll answer all of them. This guy don’t know anything about the car. Which he shouldn’t since he just borrowed the car for a few hours. I’ve lived with mine for 6 months.
