2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK55 AMG 2dr Roadster (5.4L 8cyl 7A)


The 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 is not a hairdresser's car by any means. Make sure that you order this car with the "airscarf" feature allowing one to retract the hard top in colder weather. This will reveal the symphonic sound of the normally aspirated 8-cylinder engine. The hand-built engine (0-60 in four and a half seconds), and other AMG goodies make this car worth the $15,000 surcharge over the SLK350. The car is standard Mercedes fare, quiet and vault-like. Its only problem is, AMG doesn't make a standard transmission.

Best Features

The airscarf and xenon lights.

Worst Features

Improve the 6-speed manual transmission and the weak standard sound system.
