Mercedes-AMG’s “version 55” models continue as the brand celebrates its historic anniversary.
Mercedes-AMG has released “version 55” models this year to celebrate the 55th anniversary of AMG. Since 1967, the German House has been dedicated to showcasing the potential of Mercedes-Benz car performance, and since becoming a part of the Mercedes-Benz brand, the dedication has been filled with achievements from legendary cars and groups. The latest model to get the “Edition 55” treatment is the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV, with the Mercedes-Benz GLE coupe, with a new look to celebrate AMG’s multifaceted history.
Featuring 22-inch replica AMG cross-spoke wheels with an AMG crest graphic on the side of the car paired with the AMG Night package, the “Edition 55” has a sleek and special look. A black and red interior, similar to the rest of the “Edition 55” model, from the steering wheel to the seat, to the palm rest of the center console, the “Edition 55” is pronounced by the letters, signatures and badges. Of course, AMG’s real signature is performance, and with the GLE 53 Coupe and SUV the 0-60 dash occurs in just 5.2 seconds with 429 horsepower and 384 lb / ft of torque. With the GLE 63 Coupe and SUV, 0-60 is faster in just 3.7 seconds, at 603 horsepower and 627 lb / ft of torque. Not surprisingly, the Mercedes-Benz GLE is honored to be a performance SUV that celebrates 55 years of performance efficiency.
