S55 AMG 2001

Title Status --
Exterior Color Silver Metallic
Interior Color Gray


Silver is a great color to have for an AMG Mercedes. After all, it reminds us of the classic German racing color, and this full-size S-Class sedan is made to be the sportiest of the bunch. You see it in factory details like the body kit and wide dual exhaust tips. Even a nice set of upgraded gunmetal gray 18-inch wheels goes well with the silver color. This is an actual miles car, so you\'ll find some wear and use from enjoyment. But that\'s kind of the point of this sedan because an AMG Mercedes is all about being a great driver\'s car. And they retain their value because you can see the superior build quality in the way the panels align and the door close with a solid sound that comes from taking the time to build a sturdy machine - even when it\'s a sports car in disguise.

If you\'re trying to convince yourself (or a spouse) that this is a practical car, the interior is where it drives that feeling home. After all, it\'s a full-size sedan with a spacious back seat. And a flagship like the S-Class is often a pioneer in safety, so a modern classic like this still gives you front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. Plus, it\'s easy to convince anyone of the benefits of all this luxury. It\'s loaded with real wood trim, supple leather upholstery, a power sunroof, cruise control, electro-luminescent instruments, keyless entry, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, and automatic A/C climate control. There\'s some use in the high-traffic areas, and you may choose to restore/upgrade features like the LED touchscreen infotainment or heated/cooled driver\'s seat. But overall, you\'ll be impressed how the memory seat and steering column remember your ideal driving position to prepare you for the true AMG experience.

The S55 name is an important one for this car. It means it shares the same 5.4-liter V8 with some of the hottest Benzs of its era. The 24-valve overhead cam powerhouse is rated at 350+ horsepower right from the factory. It makes for an impressive accelerator without having to get raucous. So it feels like the right mix of power and poise. The five-speed automatic transmission lets you easily kick down a gear for acceleration or cruise all day on the highway. Because this one was built to take on the Autobahn, the all-independent suspension is tuned to be both sharp and supple. Add in power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes, and you\'ll feel this is a confident driver.

Complete with the owner\'s manual. This is an executive-level sedan with the swiftness, confidence, and luxury to be the boss truly. And it\'s only asking for an intern kind of price. Call now!
