The heart of a sports car is its engine. In the SLK 55 AMG, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 engine beats impressively in tune with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission, offering an output of 310 kW (421 hp), a torque of 540 Nm and the best fuel consumption figures.
The SLK 55 AMG – the epitome of a roadster with the heart of a top athlete. Evidence of the power harnessed by its AMG engine is hinted at on the outside by the V8 lettering on the front wings. A small detail that marks the prelude to a wealth of AMG-specific design features. The car is encased within the AMG front and rear aprons as well as the side sill panels, all of which exude a distinct feeling of power.
