How do you out-AMG AMG? Known for dropping motors out of large cars into small cars, AMG replaced the six cylinder unit in the C36 with a larger M113 4.3 V8 from the E430. Great, right? Well, although it was now plus two cylinders, the new C43 wasn’t really much quicker than the C36 had been. That apparently wouldn’t do for the owner of this particular C43, who decided to AMG up his AMG by dropping an E55 motor in it, and then supercharging it. Well, then. Power isn’t specified, but considering the non-supercharged E55 motor pushed out 70 horsepower more than the 4.3, I think we can lump this one under “a lot”. Take a look at today’s home-brew C43/55:
Model: C43 AMG
Engine: 5.5 liter supercharged V8

You are looking at a rare C55 AMG with only 60,876 miles. What started as a stock C43 with over $40,000 invested in it is now a rocket. This C43 is already a rocket from the factory but it also has extensive amount of upgrades!!!!!

Sorry California, but at least they’re upfront! There’s a long list of things to love about this car; I think the W202 is a better looking car than the later C-classes, the Monoblocks look particularly awesome on this model with the well polished lips, white is the perfect understated color for this type of car, it will likely outdrag most supercars, and it appears to be in great shape.…
