Exclamation 2005-2006 C55 W203s are Supercharged? At least that's what the dealer told me

I went to check out a 2005 E55 yesterday as part of my search for a V8 Benz. I decided that I would prefer a C55 due to its size. The lack of a supercharger on that V8 seems to sound a little more practical to me than having to rebuild one at around 100,000 miles.

However, that's not the case. According to an employee at the undisclosed Mercedes dealer I went to, ALL C55's are supercharged. Am I missing something here? I seem to recall Mercedes Benz saying on their website that the car is not supercharged.

Go to Lowes/Home Depot ... buy 2x4... proceed to MB dealer and whack the guy upside the head for saying something so ridiculously stupid.

I think they don't have any Lowes/Home Depots near the dealer for that reason
