The E55 AMG looks as if it has been carved from a solid block of metal rather than being assembled, and of course it features a hand-built engine and components from AMG that deliver supercar performance while retaining a stylish and reserved exterior that does little to advertise its true high-performance potential.
A subtle AMG body kit, twin exhaust pipes and black AMG alloy wheels are the only external clues as to this car’s real attitude and capabilities.
Just in from Japan all the import duties have been paid and the first UK registered keeper will be the winner of this auction lot.

Awesome to drive with a wonderful exhaust note
Coming from Japan’s more kindly climate the underneath of this E55 is about as solid as they come with no signs of any corrosion affecting any of the bodywork either.
Right-hand drive E55 AMGs are rare and awesome to own and drive and this example looks terrific with that Mystic White bodywork and those lovely black AMG alloys that finish the car off perfectly.
With a huge specification and being in such great overall condition this car is going to make someone very happy indeed.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £10,000
£10,000 to £50,000
£50,000 to £100,000
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours. You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
What are pre-bids?
A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.
Problem with your bid
Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
