Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 details:
The Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG is now even more dynamic: a new front apron and dark-tinted headlamps give this original eight-cylinder roadster an even more athletic exterior even at a standstill. The handling dynamics of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG have also been sharpened. For the first time the vehicle features the new direct steering with variable servo assistance, which makes the 265 Kw/360 hp two-seater even more agile and responsive. The Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG is also the only vehicle in its class to option a V8 motor, while the enhanced AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC transmission now provides even faster gearchanges.
The look of the sporty roadster now reinforces the car's claim to special status even more emphatically. The refactored front apron with a more pronounced arrow-shape, the modified Mercedes star, enlarged air dams and a black-painted transverse fin on the lower section ensure a distinctly masculine aura. Big, round foglamps with chrome surrounds are now positioned further outwards, enhancing the impression of width. The hot air from the integral motor oil cooler is vented via side outlets in the front apron. The specific AMG bodystyling also contains AMG side skirts, the muscular AMG back apron with a black insert and the AMG spoiler lip.
New features also include dark-tinted projection-beam headlamps and larger look mirrors for better rearward visibility. LED indicator repeaters in an arrow layout ensure more security. Even more striking than before are the new 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a multi-spoke layout. Painted in titanium grey and with a high-sheen star, these offer interesting contrasts when viewed from the side. With a width of 7. 5 and 8. 5 inches respectively, the AMG light-alloy wheels are fitted with size 225/40 (front) and 245/35 (rear) tyres. New, high-sheen 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a twin-spoke layout are also available in the same sizes on request. Impressive deceleration values are ensured by the AMG high-performance braking system with internally ventilated brake discs all-round. The front brakes have perforated discs of size 345 x 30 mm; 300 x 22 mm discs are fitted at the back.
