The E class AMG Estate is a favorite of ours at GSCFSB. In this virtual used car lot of ours, there’s always a few of them kicking around. Rare and unique in today’s automotive landscape, these fast five-doors could very well be the last of a dying breed amidst the push for greater economy. Then again, with large SUVs still out there on the streets gulping down petrol at rapid rates, I tend to believe that may not be the case.
Hot on the heels of the E63 AMG Estate that Ben featured last week, here comes another fast Stuttgart hauler from our friends at EuroWerkz in Pleasantville, Iowa.
Model: E55 AMG Estate
Engine: 5.5 liter supercharged V8
Transmission: 5-Speed automatic

2006 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Estate at EuroWerkz
2006 Mercedes E55 AMG Wagon – Silver/Black – 1 of approximately 64 imported in the US in 2006.
History – Bought new in CA and I brought it to IA September of 2011 with 59,487 miles on it. Since day one it has been enthusiast owned. I have driven it sparingly and stored in my climate control garage as well as secured covered parking at my office location. Professionally detailed 4 times per year. The car currently has just over 70,000 miles on it.
This is a pride of ownership, open check book maintained super rare E55 Estate. All services are up to date and the car is not in need of any reconditioning. Sale includes, two sets of wheels and tires, all books, documented service history at MB dealer, and three factory keys.

All trim is original and in excellent condition. Two sets of wheels: 18” AMG split 5 star wheels as well as 19” AMG 5 star wheels (as pictured). Both sets of wheels are straight and free of rash. All eight wheels have Continental Extreme Contact DWS all-season tires mounted and each set has approximately 5,000 miles on them.

This is clearly a well maintained and well documented E55 Estate. The Pewter Metallic is possibly a bit too sublime for a car with such a beastly nature, but this is a car that doesn’t need to shout about its capabilities. Those who know these AMGs know full well of how awesome they are. The amount of servicing in the last 10,000 miles should be reassuring to any weary of taking on an AMG with just over 70,000 miles. Good examples of E55 Estates are fetching in the high $20,000 to low $30,000 territory, so a well sorted example like this isn’t far off the mark in terms of price.
