The Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG is probably one of the fastest affordable roadsters around. With its Formula One inspired design, this car gets looks by all sorts of people. On the mechanical side, the Formula One inspired gear box helps deliver the V8's 355 HP to the wheels giving the driver a neck snapping take off. The steering response is the quickest I've ever seen in any automobile. The braking is superb. It can slow you down from 95 m.p.h. so fast that your organs fall out of place ( Attempted in a controlled enviroment). As for the interior, its very roomy. The nice bucket seats will keep you firmly planted. Finally, the paddles a nicely postioned behing the steering wheel. AMG Rocks!
The 7 speed transmission is unbelieveable. Handling is amazing. The horsepower delivered from the 355 HP V8 is an expirence. Looks very hot in black paint with the top up. Although its nice with the top down too. Braking is great, thank G(g)od. Exhaust tune is out of this world! Interior is roomy.
None! Bottom line, excellent car all around. Congratulations on the improvements of the SLK line up Mercedes-Benz and AMG Performance, you went above and beyond!
