The last of the AMG Mercedes-Benz vehicles to have been produced at the original Affalterbach plant, the W210 E55 features a 5.4L V8 engine hand-built by a sole technician in correspondence with the “one man one engine” philosophy. This pre-facelift 1999 example is said to have been under the care of the same family from new up until the seller’s recent acquisition in 2021. It features an AMG styling package, 18″ AMG Monoblock wheels, automatic climate control, and heated power-adjustable front seats. Records are said to be included dating back to 2010 showing over $22k worth of service including a number of items addressed within the last three months. Currently showing approximately 154k miles on the odometer, this E55 AMG is now being offered for auction at no reserve by its seller out of California.

This W210 rides on distinctive 18” AMG Monoblock wheels dressed in a set of Kumho Ecsta tires showing date codes from 2014.
Inside, you will find a premium two-tone black and grey Condor leather interior contrasted by wood trim on the dashboard, center console, and upper door panels. Some of the factory amenities include power-adjustable and heated seats with position memory, automatic climate control, cruise control, a cassette player, a trunk-mounted CD changer, and insulated glass all around. The steering wheel features a contrasting upper portion in perforated leather and sits ahead of a gauge cluster housing a 160-MPH speedometer and 7k-RPM tachometer. The seller notes that the headliner is beginning to sag toward the rear of the cabin and that the original floor mats will be included with the sale.
