Following the extensive model updates for the S-Class Saloon, the S 55 AMG has a totally new character. Beneath the bonnet of the AMG high-performance vehicle beats the heart of a top athlete – the V8 supercharged engine, with its 5.5-litre displacement, 493-hp output at 6100 rpm and 516 lb-ft torque between 2750 and 4000 rpm, familiar from the SL 55 AMG. In this prestigious and luxurious top model, the tremendous power ensures sports car-style dynamism: in the S 55 AMG the sprint from 0 to 60 mph takes just 4.8 seconds, and it takes just 16.3 seconds to reach the 120 mph mark. The electronically governed top speed for each is 155 mph.

The S 55 AMG is fitted as standard with Active Body Control, which significantly reduces side tilt on bends as well as pitch and roll. The driver can also select between comfort-oriented or sporty characteristics at the touch of a button. Stiffer, AMG-specific tuning of the spring struts and the high-performance braking system with internally ventilated, perforated discs all round and eight-piston fixed callipers at the front axle do justice to the increased dynamic potential.

The new V8 KOMPRESSOR models can be distinguished from the other S-Class models by the AMG bodystyling, which is fitted as standard. The front end is characterised by the new-design AMG front apron, with larger openings for the charge-air cooling. The side view features 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in the new twin-spoke design with mixed-size tyres, AMG side skirts and the V8 KOMPRESSOR lettering on the front wings. The AMG sports exhaust with two chromed twin tailpipes and the distinctive AMG rear apron lend a dynamic touch at the rear.

The appointments in the S 55 AMG certainly live up to the high technical standards of the vehicles. The AMG instrument cluster with its 320-km/h gauge, an AMG ergonomic sports steering wheel with gearshift buttons and door sill panels with the AMG logo emphasise the AMG style. Luxurious flair is also added by the extensive fine wood trim and the nappa leather appointments, available in three colours. The S 55 AMG offers multicontour dynamic driving seats in the front. These ensure that the degree of lateral support provided adjusts automatically when cornering at speed. The seats in both models have an AMG-specific design and perforated upholstery, with AMG badges incorporated in the backrests.
