AMG cars have always been among the best performing German machines available, often with naturally aspirated engines tuned within an inch of their lives or huge V8s in a small chassis a’la the Hammer. AMG used the basic principal of big power + light car = hang on tight. In the late ’90s things at AMG went from crazy, to just plain insanity, as they started tinkering with supercharging on their AMG models.
One of the first recipients of the insanity was the W210 chassis in the form of the E55 AMG sedan. The 5.4 liter M113 AMG engine put down a laundry list of staggering performance numbers. With 349 bhp and 391 lb/ft of torque and mated to the 5-speed Touchshift automatic transmission, the E55 recorded 0-60 times as fast as 4.8 seconds, and 1/4 mile times in the low 13 second range. This amazingly kept 2001 E55 for sale in Fairfax, Virginia is a great opportunity to own an Autobahn burner.
