C55 AMG to Boast Naturally Aspirated Version of E55 AMG Engine

Mercedes-Benz, long since a leader among luxury carmakers, has pumped up the power in recent years with ultra-fast AMG variants of all its models.

Not willing to let the new Audi S4, next-generation BMW M3, and for that matter, Cadillac CTS-V steal all of its exhaust note thunder, the 249-hp supercharged V6 equipped C32 AMG is to be dropped for a C55 AMG towards the fall of next year, pulling its engine directly from the E55 AMG.

 

But unlike the supercharged E-Class, the C55 AMG will be naturally aspirated, good for something close to 370-hp.

 

The cars immense torque should result in otherworldly acceleration, while the models road holding capabilities are well documented.
