Nice car, I have never heard or seen of an E60 - What is the story behind the E60?
What is the difference between the E60 and E55 - the rear wheel rims look wider?

Best of luck with your new beast :thumbsup:
The W210 E60 is based off of the 1996-97 E50. The 5.0l was bored to 6.0l producing over 380hp(there was also a 6.3l). From what I have found online the suspension was also slightly altered.

This car has a wide body, along with 2 piece wheels(10" rears).

Some of this info may be a little off, im just going by what I can find as I go, so if some one has any more info please chime in.

I am also having a very hard time finding any production numbers.

Hello WideE60,

Welcome to the forum!

The E60's engine is based on the M119 with Bosch ME injection system, whilw th E55's engine was based on the M113.
The hp quoted for the M119 6.0 was actually lowered by MB from about 400hp, so as not to put the M120 V12 engine to shame.

OT, you wouldn't have any info on a front cut E60(W210)/E60(W124) or SL500 6.0(R129) available, from your Japan connections, by chance?

I can keep my eyes and ears open, it would be by complete chance if I did though.
