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 the march of 2011 the Mercedes Benz factory unveiled the all new R172 model at the Geneva motor show, with this dramatic new addition to still follow similar exterior design detailing that had been loved by many on the R171 model, but now would have a more muscular and aggressive nose, up to date and more relevant technology and a new selection of engine choices to please every driver, which would of course included the mighty top of the range SLK55 AMGthat instantly delighted the purist the thrill seekers. From the AMG factory, the SLK55 AMG had been fitted with the five point five litre V8, producing a more than healthy 421 brake horse power, capable of accelerating both driver and passenger from 0-62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and would further climb to an electrically limited top speed of 155 mph, with all this power available with or without the electric solid folding roof in place.

Our example was first supplied in June 2015 and since this date has covered just 19795 miles. Over this period it has been maintained by its only owner to the very highest of standards with Mercedes-Benz services logged at 7003, 10871 & 15156. Offered for sale with all the past Mercedes Service prints, the owners book pack, factory specification card and both keys.

3. Interior

The interior of the SLK55 offers so much, whilst being a comfortable place to sit when eating up those miles you also feel as if you're in something that little bit more special than the ordinary in this sport compact environment. From factory, our example was opted with the red fine nappa leather sport seats, the black leather bound steering wheel with paddles, black leather drivers centre tunnel that surrounds the gloss black ash centre console, read leather door cards, black leather dash that wraps around this sporty cabin with the finishing touches being the brushed aluminium inserts to the drivers dials and interior vents.

4. Exterior

The SLK55's body is presented in stunning fashion by the Palladium Silver Metallic paint that does a superb job of showing off the aggressive AMG lines and exterior styling package that give this car a fantastic road presence to go along with that thundering noise. From factory our car was opted with the 18" AMG 5-Spoke Alloy Wheels finished in silver, the chrome tipped quad exhaust, the boot lip spoiler, V8 AMG motifs to the front wings, the gloss black front grille that is dominated by the 3-pointed Mercedes-Benz star, dark grey embossed brake calipers and is finished off with the AMG motifs to the rear.
