R55 AMG "kompressor" poser!

Let the pictures speak for their pathetic selves...

Notice the smaller 55 next to the larger R... fake!

Now if they would have slapped a 63 on there I might have been fooled because of the quad tailpipes. Hey, he gets credit for those.

And the "kompressor" is the coup de grce.

I don't know whether this guy is a poser or not, but there are V8 Kompressor engines:

Actually there was an R 63 AMG but I dont believe it was ever for sale in the US. Also it said R 63 not R 55 and it had no front fender badge. In addition the exhaust was different than what is shown in the OPs picture. Here is a pic of an R 63.



I'm older so I drive fast as I have less time left to waste.

Indeed, the 63 AMG models are for the European market.

Yes, and that one has a nice AMG diffuser. This R55 wannabe gets a tiny bit of credit, but it's sloppy...

Yes, I do believe the G55 has a kompressor (supercharged) V8. I was just pointing out a phony R55... :-)

Even the R63 that it most closely resembles was normally aspirated.

Not sure if this is a poser or not, but the R55 was sold in 2005/2006. Not sure if it was ever sold in the U.S. or not, however, not that unusual in my area to see peple ship thier cars over from other markets.

I have an R500 and love it. That V8 variant was only produced for the US market in 2006/2007.

There was also a R63 sold in the US market. A total of 84 were sold if I'm not mistaken. The rarest of all AMG's here in the States. I think it was only offered here in 2007. Apparently there was not a huge market for 4.5 second 0-60 AWD minivans.

There was also an R550 sold briefly in Europe and Canada. Not sure about the rest of the world. Wish we got this version.

I think all the V8's had been discontinued by 2008 in favor of V6 gas and diesel engines.

R63 is the rarest (post-Daimler) AMG.
