2. Model History

AMG was founded as a racing engine forged in 1967 by the former Mercedes engineers, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, with the letters "AMG" standing for Aufrecht, Melcher and Gro├časpach (aufrecht's birth town). Now owned by Daimler Mercedes, this special brand is a high-profile purveyor of modified Mercedes vehicles, adored by drivers and feared by other manufacturers. In 2001 the German car manufacturer introduced to the world the first official r230 model at the September Frankfurt motor show and was also showcased as the safety car for formula one at the 2001 German grand prix in Hockenheim, with the mighty SL55 AMG becoming available in 2002. This model was to be the top option available at the time from Mercedes Benz offering clients from around the globe, the ultimate in high powered open top motoring, with refined luxurious detail and a monster 5.4 litre V8 AMG engine that produced a rather healthy 476 bhp, capable of accelerating both driver and passenger from 0-62 mph in just 4.3 seconds and offering a limited top speed of 155 mph. If we fast forward to 2019, this model has become highly desirable in the modern day classic collectable circle, with many new and established buyers wanting to acquire perfectly presented examples, with excellent past service history, with these people seeing these now rare vehicles has a perfect investment opportunity with values to only ever increase over time.

This extremely rare one owner example was first supplied by Mercedes-Benz in 2003 and since then has covered just 44833 miles. The car is truly sensational which is no surprise given the past maintenance history that is with the car to include Mercedes-Benz services at 10656, 17501, 21968, 27071, 32842, 38456, 41374 and 42787 miles, as well as the additional maintenance work that has been carried out on this car at Mercedes ensuring that it is in the condition it is today. Our SL55 AMG is offered for sale with the original service book, an A4 paperwork folder listing all the work carried out, owners book pack, MB specification card and two keys.
