An automotive milestone, the 2004 E55 AMG is the fastest production sedan in the history of Mercedes-Benz AMG.

I think it is way under rated from the factory. A recent magazine got a o-60 time of 4.2 out of it, and if MB is underrating the 0-60 times, I wouldn't be surprised if the engine numbers were underrated as well, as they would be easier to be deceptive about.

I think it is the same 493 HP engine used in the SL/CL/S55 but with restrictive intake and exhaust manifolds which reduce the output to some degree.

From dyno tests I've seen, the E55's have exactly the same HP and TQ as the Sl55 and CL55 AMG's. This advertised parity is used as another point to help justify the much higer price of the CL and SL.
