Some people don’t just pull up to a place or event, they “arrive”. People take notice of the subtle changes, the attention to detail, the fact that this particular vehicle ain’t quite like the others. They stop and stare, begin to ask questions and grin and smile just looking.  Or they might just hear the 600hp roar of the modified supercharged V-8 AMG engine before the “arrival” and wonder “what on earth is that”! Craig, the owner of this extremely modified E55, took the performance of this AMG Mercedes to rare levels with power and suspension mods and is knocking on the 10 second 1/4 mile E55 door! Then it runs on ethanol! Buckhead Imports Performance has done the vast majority of the work and it recently 603hp and 711lbs of torque on a dynojet.

A serious car like this needs serious wheels and the Vossen CV2 20×9 and 20×10.5 is the perfect match for such a vehicle. The silver spokes and stainless steel lip of the CV2 matches the silver on this AMG perfectly and the rear Concave wheels add the aggression and stance this vehicle needs to say “I’m not your normal E55”. The huge AMG brakes also can be seen through the CV2 spokes and it adds a classic yet sporty look to this vehicle. You might hear this powerful and lovely E55 before you see it at the drag strip or somewhere luxurious where it looks in place in either setting. Don’t just pull up, “arrive” with Vossen Wheels.
