Check out this Mercedes-Benz B55 V8, a one-off model exclusively manufactured to mark the success of the premium Mercedes A and B-Class models. It carries a 5.5-liter V8 engine capable of producing 388 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque, along with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Based upon a training destined B 200 CDI, the high performance Mercedes B 55 car idea came from the plant manager Peter Wesp, who gave his staff the task of developing a special automobile on the basis of the B-Class. Additional special fittings were made in the steering and exhaust areas, and the drive axle at the rear was swapped with an older W210 series E-Class model.
Extra tuning includes the installation of ventilated brake discs measuring 345×34 mm in the front, and 300×30 mm at the rear. Furthermore, the Mercedes B55 received a set of stunning 18-inch AMG sport wheels with a five-spoke design. A luxurious interior rounds out the package, with leather upholstery and Alcantara combination.
