I don't know that there was ever an E320 AMG in North America. Perhaps it was a C32 AMG. The closest E-class to what you're describing is an E36 AMG in Europe (M104 engine). Perhaps the previous owner simply stuck an AMG badge on the car.

AMG versions typically only have a two numeric designation (such as E55) while the non-AMG variants had a three numeric (E320; E430; E500).

This is more common than you think. Dealers tend to be morons when they take things in trade, one near me took in what was badged as a "GS430"; while it was indeed a Lexus it was the 6, not the 8. Not only did they not open the hood (or notice if they did), they also didn't bother reading the title. Particularly surprising, at least to me, is that it was a Lexus dealer.

You can buy badges at MB dealers, or even on Ebay, so just like the print media, don't believe everything you read.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
