This Immaculate 2004 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG Is Up For Grabs

Rehan Conyers

The W203 C-Class is a stylish sedan. This it that, and much more. It’s up for auction for enthusiasts to salivate, and maybe, buy. Don’t think twice.

Even after all these years of sharper designs, smaller-capacity engines, larger dimensions and the switch to fast EVs, the Mercedes-Benz W203 C-Class has aged like fine wine. You get a lot of them going for cheap, and it takes a true Mercedes enthusiast to know why you’d fall for one. The car in the limelight at the moment, is its bigger, V8-engined sibling: the C55 AMG. It’s faster, sexier, comes equipped with a lot more — and like all AMGs — is typically loud. The Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG was built between 2004-07. It may be a drive down memory lane, but there’s an early 2004 example for sale — and we couldn’t resist from letting the world know about it.

The C55 marked the return of fuel-drinking, AMG V8 engines, after having been through a rather brief and unsuccessful phase of being powered by a supercharged V6. More than anyone, it was AMG’s boffins who seemed more excited that their beefy, hand built engine found its way into the most hardcore version of the W203 C-Class. The biggest perk that came with the car, was the badge attached to it. It screamed power and torque, and this time, the sports sedan’s dynamics were refined. The C55 AMG, soon after its launch, became the most compact, affordable, practical and comfortable Mercedes-AMG German muscle car you could buy. This gave the BMW M3 a reason to be grunting at Affalterbach.

This Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG Is Hot Property

via Collecting Cars

The W203 C-Class is a looker, particularly in this shade of Obsidian Black; there’s no two ways about it. Add AMG’s ingredients for good measure, and you’ve a sharper looking C-Class. The styling remains modern to this day, thanks to its flat grille, the clear-lens headlamps, the sportier bumpers, lip spoiler, the emblem from the CLK and the quad oval exhausts sticking out intimidatingly. This particular car gets 18-inch twin, five-spoke AMG alloy wheels wrapped in Continental rubber. The previous owner of the car had it fitted with H&R lowering springs and wheel spacers.

Interior Features Specific To This Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG

via Collecting Cars

The interior of ‘1HOS — 483’ is finished in semi-Aniline Nappa leather with a blend of white stitching and aluminum-like inlays, to give it that classy look. The car comes with the original heated and electrically-adjustable front seats, featuring three-position memory. There’s more too: a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control with a speed limiter, an electric sunroof, electrically folding door mirrors, a COMAND infotainment system, rear parking assistance and more. For those sticklers for detail among you all — the C55 gets its original owner’s manual, a tool kit, two keys and a spare wheel.

The Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG Is A German Muscle Car

via Collecting Cars

The C55 AMG was powered by a 5.4-liter, naturally-aspirated V8 producing 367hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, with all of it being sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed auto transmission with buttons behind the steering to shift; we’re not calling them paddle-shifters, sorry. The car can sprint from 0-62mph in 5 seconds — and that’s a huge feat, even by today’s acceleration standards. This example has covered 82,383 miles since it was driven off the dealership floors.

Hurry Up, The Bid Ends Soon For The Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG

via Collecting Cars

By and large, we’re looking at a great car with a good service history. The gleaming paintwork is enticing, and the car is free of mechanical and electrical issues. The website on which it is being auctioned, reports that the last road-worthiness test was carried earlier last month, and the result is a pass. There are, however, a few imperfections that can be digested, like the repainted front bumper, the alloy wheels that have been refurbished, subtly chipped-off paint in certain areas and a few hairline scratches. The cabin leaves nothing to complain about, except for the creased seats. The car is for sale in Perth, Australia, so hurry up, start bidding on, and if you’re lucky, the car will be shipped over to where you’re based.

Just realised the last link I gave wasnt for the right page. Here is one from MotorTrend showing 1/4 mile time for the C55 — [email protected]

AMG_JOE  14y ago

honestly the 1/4 mile time is wrong. i ran my stock 2006 C55 AMG at a track here in hot texas and ran a 12.9 @ 107.

linksys  15y ago

0-100 time should be 5.0, 0-160 should be 11.2& 0-200 should be 17.9. Information gathered from the following link and search under Mercedes Benz, C55 W203-2006:

linksy  16y ago

Am sure the 1/4 mile time for this is more closer to 13.0 so will look around for that but here’s one for the timebeing showing a 13.2 for the 1/4. Can this be updated?

    Author’s estimate


    The main advantage of a Mercedes: it is very, very pleasant to drive. There is a lot of space in the cabin, there is enough power, but I’ll just keep silent about the speed limit (the cut-off worked at 255 km / h) … They respect on the road, which is also nice, a very strong body and a shock-resistant tin, which is important. but … on weekends it attracts increased attention of the traffic police, and if there is not enough money for maintenance, then reconsider the choice of car (it is not very expensive for maintenance (oil, filters, pads . ..) in general, everything is like everyone else). I don’t know what happened to the car before me (I’ve been on it for the last 2.5 years and 120000 km), then…

    I can say that I chose from about 4 cars because I wanted exactly 6 liters of long black, but I only managed to get silver, but I don’t regret it, since the condition is excellent, I myself am from Belarus, Grodno, I bought a car in the capital, I went with a friend by bus, since everything the cars were under repair, both mine and those of friends, the owner of the car met us at the railway station, immediately realized that this was the car for which I was driving, even though it was in the winter, got into the Mercedes, closed the doors, it’s a pity that the front boosters didn’t work)))) but I did not pay attention to this even after 200 meters, I was already ready to go to re-register the car, . ..

    Power is 235bhp, top speed is 155mph. Year 2006. Long wheel base is an extra 6″ of leg room for the rear seats.
    Diesel is best as you can go 1000 km on a single tank. Lots of pulling power at low speed. color is fabulos — flint gray (mokrij asfalt). just right for a lady!
    not into characteristics but the car is the best one eva
