Mercedes-Benz E-Class 550 Sport

For the lead-footed family man is the E550 Sport. Like the other all-new E-Class models introduced today, there’s not a whole lot of visual distinction between the new and the old that we’ve driven several times. The 5.5-liter packs 382 horses, which is up 80 on the old V8, with an equal 20 m.p.g. figure.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
