Topless Performer
By V of CS on


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


This car offers outstanding performance with great looks. It can serve as your Summer car - top down, 0- 60 sprints in 4.8 seconds - or daily driver averaging 20-22 MPG. The sport seats and interior are superb. The AMG exterior styling is masculine but not over the top. Fuel economy is an "8" when compared against other V8 automobiles in this performance range - you want 30 MPG buy a Civic. Options: Iridium Silver, Premium 3 Package, Lighting package, Heating Package, Sadachiba multipiece wheels, illuminated door sills and clear front stone and chip guard.

Best Features

Blistering performance with exclusivity. Stands out from the crowd. Industrial brakes. Roomy for its size. Convertible hardtop is a marvel, and that exhaust note!

Worst Features

Location of the cupholders is high on the center of the dash and above all the electronics. Cruise control stalk is where the turn signal arm should be and take the CD changer out of the glove compartment for more storage.
