1999 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG


This 1999 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG must be one of the best examples in the UK. Its well-documented service history since 2012 shows that it has had no expense spared on maintenance, and the car is in superb, unmolested condition, inside and out.

Finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic with an Anthracite/Grey leather interior with dark wood trim, the AMG has a truly luxurious specification. Features include cruise control, dual climate control, fully electric memory seats, heated seats, auto-dip rearview mirror, electric folding door mirrors, rear parking sensors, CD player, ESP, climate-controlled central cubby, and auto-dropping rear headrests. It’s an incredibly luxurious place to be.

The car was the personal weekend transport of a long-time customer of ours, an English gentleman living and working in Hong-Kong. A true car enthusiast, he has kept a detailed record (in two folders) of all work he had done since buying it in 2012. He brought the AMG to the UK in 2019 and left it in the capable hands of well-known Mercedes special John Haynes. In the last year alone, the car has had some £7700 spent on it. Recent work of note includes attending to a small amount of rust on the boot slam panel by renewing the entire panel (this alone was over £3300), installing a custom-made Hayward and Scott exhaust system, renewing the headlamps (the old ones were slightly discoloured) and fitting a new steering rack and prop shaft. The Mercedes was treated to a B service, including spark plugs, transmission fluid and brake fluid, in March 2020, and has almost unworn Michelin Pilot Sport tyres all round, so it’s all ready for a new owner to enjoy.

The E55 AMG is powered by a wonderful 5.4-litre V8 engine that produces 349bhp and catapults this big saloon from 0-60mph in just 5.4 seconds. It really is an astonishing mix of comfort, performance and Mercedes-Benz’s legendary build quality. We are confident that you won’t find a better example.
