I just got this car a few months ago,
february 2004, and since the first
test drive, I loved it. I sold a
ferrari 355 to buy this car, and it
was worth it. It is just as fast as
the ferrari, yet infinitly more
civilized, practical, comfortable,
luxurius... This is truly the best car
in the world, fast, comfortable, rolls
royce level of fit and finish.
The fact that 1 person made the engine
by hand. The convertable hard top
makes this a car for all seasons and
all reasons. The power. The speed. The
handling. The interior. The Quality.
reserve feul light comes on too early,
more color choises would be nice,
The SL55AMG is by far the best car in the
world. It has then hard top convertible and
all the specifcations you can want. The only
poor thing is that you can't get in a the
charcoal colour. The interior is really
comfortable and it has a massage system
which is really relaxing.
I have had every make of car there is
over the years. Ferrari, BMW,Mercedes,
Porsche.etc., but nothing as fun to
drive as this SL55AMG. On a scale of 1
to 10, I would give it a 12. Solid,
incredibly quick, comfortable, yet a
cat on the road.I have yet to find a
single thing to dislike. Great job
Mercedes, keep the new innovations
Steering, suspension,,seats, looks and
Tires that would allow the car to
exercise it's capabilities
The best all around performance car
available. Its a sports car (albeit a
heavy one) a convertible (magic) a
luxury car and just plain beautiful.
The exhaust note is addicting and its
in traffic manners are relaxing. Find
an open stretch of road and there will
be FEW cars that will be able to keep
up. I love it!
The retractable hard top and the fact
that the car is just as attractive with
the top up or down...ohh.. of course,
the horse power!
The transmission in sport mode. It
needs to be much more responsive when
shifting. The navigation system is an
antique compared with my other cars and
the brakes don't keep up the horse
power. Mine were replaced with Brembo
units and it made a HUGE difference.
