Mercedes-Benz E320 BLUETEC

Once the E-Class was revealed, though, we got down to business. We started off with the BLUETEC version promised back in Detroit. Tech specs include 221 horsepower and a monster 376 lb.-ft. of toque-along with 35 miles per gallon. Sweet. And clean, according to MB; it’s the “world’s cleanest engine in its class.” We’ve driven the last generation of MB diesels, and were mightily impressed; we’ll be surprised if this one doesn’t surpass even that.

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.
