4dr Sedan supercharged 469hp 5.4L V8 5-speed shiftable automatic RWD

Why the 2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

Materials & workmanship

Mercedes does a wonderful job with the fit and finish. Tranny shifts like no other car I have ever owned and the steering is just so perfect. Hardly ANY road noise.

Powertrain performance

500+ horsepower is incredible. V8 Kompressor (Supercharger) is king of the road (well, except for their V12 Bi-Turbo!!)

Interior styling

Napa leather is incredible and the wood trim is very nice.

Ride smoothness

Airmatic suspension is incredible. Settings for comfort or sport.

Brand reputation & image

Mercedes is still king. Is why you see movie stars go buy them.

Why Not the 2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

Fuel economy

Average 17 MPG. 10 MPG when having fun!


Depreciation is ridiculous. Half the price in two years.
