Mercedes-Benz has just updated its C-class sedan and now there is also a new AMG-version. The C 55 AMG is the sportiest C-class of all times and will be available as saloon and estate.

The powerplant is the AMG-tuned 5.5-liter V-8 engine with 367 hp and 376 foot-pounds of torque, which works together with the AMG Speedshift five-speed automatic transmission, which can be shifted on the steering wheel. Expect acceleration from 0-60 mph in just five seconds. The top speed is limited at 250 mph.
