2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Review

This is the car everyone wants with good reason. Prior to taking delivery of my SL55, I drove a Honda S2000 (fun but very basic) and a 2003 SLK32 (too small, horrible steering response). Even with a weight of over two tons, the SL55's 493 horses will pin you to your seatback while surounding you with every conceivable luxury appointment. I drove SL55's at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in June's AMG Challenge, just to see what this beast could do when fully unleashed. What a rush! Not your typical no-frills sports car, but a lot more fun to drive!

Favorite Features

Watching the retractable hardtop, the High-Low beam HID headlights, and, of course, the amazing horsepower and torque!

Suggested Improvements

Don't destroy the looks by giving it the new SLK / SLR front-end treatment.
