Redefining driving excitement
By SL55 TN on


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


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!

Best Features

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

Worst Features

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