As much as the SUV trend has taken off, there has been a spate of performance estates that have made their appearance over the last decade. Most recently, the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon has made a splash by offering a supercharged V8 and 6 speed manual in a marked departure from the traditional Cadillac lineup. BMW and Audi have offered up a few hot estates for US consumption and Mercedes-Benz, not to be left out, unleashed the E55 on us in 2005, a supercharged V8 beast that made going to the market just a bit more fun. These E55 estates are now at an age where they are becoming attractive second hand buys, and this special ordered example is quite possibly the most off the wall one I’ve come across.

This is a love it or hate it kind of car. Sure, it’s rare, but yellow? I’d rather see this hue on an SLK than a wagon, even if it is fast. Part of the allure for me in owning an estate is stealth. And you sure aren’t going to go unnoticed in this machine. With 60,000 miles, we’re about $10,000 to $15,000 over what a normal E55 would run. I’m not sure a one of one color constitutes that kind of premium in this case.
