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.

  • 9:38 because if you you open sun roof just that it raise up that vent brings nicely wind in cabin and not sun.

  • Really don't get why Doug didn't do any acceleration in this video. He has one clip of himself doing a short acceleration but that's it. Very disappointing especially considering how much time he spent talking about how Mercedes dropped the hammer and surprised everyone with this car. One acceleration was not enough

  • About the front cupholder: I think this was an afterthought from Mercedes. Here in Germany, it is actually not the standart that cars have cupholders, at least is is not expected. I work at a mercedes dealership as a mechanik and most of these E-Classes do not have a cupholder there, it is normally an ash tray or a little storage compartment. So my theorie is, that mercedes wanted to add an cupholder when they brought this car to the US, and that was their weird solution

  • I remember I saw a W211 E55 AMG when I was 8, and it blows my mind how fast this "E-class" was!

  • Correction: At 11:38 You mention that the car didn't have a body kit but the AMG versions does have a different body kit than the standard e55. It has side skirts and different front and back bumpers.

  • 5:10 -the broad slot is not for business cards but it is meant for the parking disc, which is obligatory in several countries. It fits nicely there. Also the second pencil slot is too short for most pencils but It fits a pen like tyre pressure meter.

  • Those really do have some quirks and features, I rode in one of these when I was 13 it was brand new, I remember being jealous of my friends rich Dad and his e55 amg, the guy also had a 1990 Ferrari, he told me the Mercedes was way faster and I was a kid so I thought he was yanking my chain! How could a Benz beat a Ferrari?

    • Also, the passenger storage compartment under the seat is were the First Aid kit originally went, and that trunk latch attaches to the top of the trunk so if you're getting something out of the bottom compartment the top flap won't get in your way.

  • I had one of theses for about a year, Initially fell in love with the power train, but getting more used to it, i started to notice more of the cars short comings. I could never learn to like the headlights, the hood is massive, no locking diff. It has a hard time putting the power down in anything other than a straight line.. Handling/airmatic and slow auto on this is its major Achilles heel. Nice interior though. I swapped mine for an e39 M5, and although down on power, it is the complete package, never looked back.

  • I have a very weird taste in cars first I am always an American car enthusiast second I am a Mercedes-Benz/euro car Enthusiast I own three cars all of them very different. I have the CLK 55 cabriolet from the generation before. This will be my next AMG you find me a car that’s from the early 2000s that still works modern today. That’s the thing about Mercedes Benz Kenseal a.k.a. from the 90s and it doesn’t really look that auto place where as if you put a Cadillac from the 90s it would look really long in the tooth. Some of the most beautiful body lines of ever seen on a car I fucking love the class

  • 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.
