Mar 27, 2005
For sale is the flagship and top of the range Mercedes AMG E55, this has the same AMG hand built engine as found on the Mercedes SLR, SL55 etc, this car is very rare and becoming rarer by the month and in excellent condition. This car has everything luxury, power and performance with the added bonus of very low running cost due to it being LPG converted. Car is registered in late 2004 so qualifies for cheaper road tax. You pay £315 per year compared to £520 for cars registered after 2005.

I have owned this car for the last 6 years and have spent over £1000’s on this (detailed below), this is my pride and joy and I can assure you that you will not find a better AMG E55 model. It took me 12 months to find this spec with all the options and then spent a fortune getting it LPG gas converted (cost me £3500 for the best system on the market) and upgraded (see below). It is in the most sought-after combination (metallic Silver) and with black leather interior which never shows its age.

It has 5.4 litre Supercharged engine, this currently produces in the region of 590bhp+ and will cover 0 – 60 in 4.2 seconds.


I have kept the car looking standard and have made the following performance modifications

  • 77mm Supercharger pulley (replaces the standard 87mm) for an extra 50-70bhp boost
  • Removal of Secondary Cats (Primary Cats are in place, removal of secondary means a more free flowing exchast and more power)
  • C63 Backboxes (Google this, this is a sought after modification, the E55 by default is very muted, The C63 backbox gives it the best of both in terms on noise, quite with a nice V8 burble on startup and a distinctive AMG noise when driven hard, this is a very sought after mod.
  • Uprated Supercharger cooler pump, this is a commen
  • Stage 1 Remap
This car will not depreciate and in fact will probably go up in value over time, over the last 6 years of ownership the price of these has stayed the same, this is LPG gas converted and in the lower tax band which make this even more attractive as an everyday affordable and rare supercar.

She has covered 133,000 miles with Full-Service History using genuine Mercedes parts and approved Mobil 1 oils only (with receipts). The car has had 2 previous owners not your usual 8+ owners.

I am confident that you won’t find a better car. What I suggest is that you go and view a few other cars and then come and view this car. You will not find a better car the bodywork, interior, Alloys etc is in immaculate condition (like a 2 year old car). I am very fussy over my cars and trust me I like my cars to be perfect, looking original like they left the factory and as new.

Remember unlike other cars this car has levelled off in terms of depreciation, the low running cost (Tax, Fuel and Reliability) and performance makes this a unique offering which no other car can offer you. If you spent 16k on another comparable car after a few years it will probably be worth less than half in value, this car will retain its value due to it being a rare AMG and even more attractive due to it being LPG gas converted it will give you cheap motoring so makes financial sense. You could probably sell this car after 5 years of ownsership the same amount you paid.

LPG Gas Conversion (Dual fuel so can run it on Petrol or Gas)

The car is LPG gas covered with a large 67 litre tank in the spare wheel well the car so you don’t loose any boot space.
It can run on either petrol (80 litre tank) or gas (67 Litre tank) each has its own separate tank. A full tank of Petrol and Gas will give the car a range of over 900 miles on a single tankful. This Conversion cost me over £3600 and is the top of the range Prins conversion. This is the only company which produces injectors large enough to cope with the power of the car. The cars LPG system has also been doubled up with everything (2 reducers, 2x filters etc) to cope with the power and so that there is no loss of power and you wont be able to tell the difference between it running on petrol or gas, you will just benefit from the 56p a litre cost of filling up. I can do 100 Motorway miles for £11 which is amazing for a car which has over 500bhp and do 0-60 in low 4’s which makes for very cheap running for a car with supercar performance. I have a fully certified gas certificate for the conversion and the car is registered with the LPG UK Network.
