Question E55 AMG estate/wagon

Will they ever bring it to the USA?

She shares the same HP (476 SAE) and torque (700 Nm) as the E55 AMG sedan.

My new lust . . .

That is one sexy wagon! Debadged that would be the best sleeper out there. Do you know how much it weighs? Wonder if they'll ever bring it out here.......I've heard rumors but who knows.

2,495-kg (5,489 lbs.)
0-100kmh (62mph) = 4.8 seconds
700 Nm (516 ft-lbs) torque

That's a ALOT of weight, and the sedan weighs 5,202 lbs.

Greetings Neil- How's the GC working out in the C36 motor?

Are you thinking of running it in the 500e? What are you running now?


btw- more and more horsepower on the street every year...and seems to getting cheaper and cheaper to acquire too!

best regards
-fad

German Castrol (GC) is working great. But I think I'm going to switch to Schaeffer's oil. Higher anti-wear and better detergents, plus it's MB approved.

I'm hoping that in 5-8 years one of these wagons will be off-lease and in my hands . . .

Currently running Mobi1 5w-40 European formula. Also will be switching to Schaeffers.

Unfortunately the beautiful E 55 wagon will not be coming to the US. I visited with a couple of folks from MBUSA and Mercedes-AMG during the SLR Unlimited test drive at IDIADA outside Barcelona. I was hoping to get an E55 wagon for my wife, who will only drive MBZ wagons. They told me I would have to buy two…one to crash test and one for the wife. Apparently each configuration of any vehicle is required to go through the testing to be brought into the US.

Fortunately the new wagon will come into the US with the 500 engine. Too bad for the E55 wagon…It would be one fun vehicle!

I think there was an article in the latest Star Mag. that claimed the E55 Estate Wagon would come ashore in the US...
