Mercedes Benz E55 AMG: World’s Fastest Wagon

Mercedes Benz E55 AMG
The new E55 AMG wagon packs power of 469 horsepower & 0-to-60 mph times of four.6 seconds with its five.5-liter supercharged AMG V8 engine. It's high-performance four-wheel disc brakes with oversize perforated & ventilated rotors with multi-piston calipers.

The exclusive new wagon also comes with AMG aerodynamic bodywork with AMG 18-inch alloy wheels with staggered tires. Inside, black Birdseye maple trim is standard, as well as special AMG gauges & sport seats completed in nappa leather.

Air suspension from the S-Class, called Airmatic DC (for Dual Control), is standard on the E55 AMG models. Airmatic suspension makes use of sensors that monitor road conditions, driving style & cornering forces to be positive that the process always chooses the best air spring & shock absorber settings. The process can switch between different damping profiles in a fraction of a second, & the driver can also select from pre-set suspension response programs.

Standard to the E55 AMG wagon are four-zone climate control that allows different temperature settings for the rear outboard passengers as well as the driver & front passenger. Also standard on the both the E55 AMG wagon & sedan models is a harman kardon Logic 7 audio process that features seven-channel surround sound, concert-quality output & 12 high-end speakers.

A used sports suspension for the CLS55 AMG that is based on the Mercedes-Benz semi-active air suspension with giant vented & perforated disc brakes carryover staggered 19-inch wheels with 255/35 tires in front & 285/30 at the rear. To help handle all the power, the ESP process can apply the brakes on wheel to transfer torque to the wheels with better traction, achieving much the same effect as a limited-slip differential.
