    Hi everyone:
    Most of these went to the US, but does any one know - or know where to find out - how many C55 AMGs have been sold in the UK?

    I have seen the info somewhere just cant remember where right now. The figure that springs to mind was about 12,000 C32's and 8,000 C55's. Think the UK had 1200 or so. I will see if i can find the official info as i have copied and pasted somehwhere safe cant remember where.

    You can find out from DVLA how many are registered? You can get the info under the freedom of information act. There may be a small fee involved. A friend of mine contacted DVLA to find out how many Vauxhall Cavalier Turbo's where left on the road.

    * This hasnt been posted for awhile, so I thought I'd refresh our memories as to how RARE (like a good steak) our c Classes really are:

    1996 296
    1997 199

    C 43 AMG


    1998 788
    1999 546

    2003 878
    2004 219

    C 55 AMG

    2005 1299
    2006 451

    World wide numbers for the C-AMG cars

    Wanna take a guess at how many M3's there are.... i'd say x5 as much as the C55 worldwide....

    Thats probably one of the main factors contributing to me never owning one, ever. Far too common, almost boring.

    Tis true. There were thousands of M3's shipped worldwide, that's what makes AMG's so special.
