The new Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG is the most powerful SLK of all time. This two seater cabriolet is powered by a 5.5 litre V8 engine, and debuts a clever piece of engine technology called AMG Cylinder Management. Fuel consumption is approximately 33.6mpg on the combined cycle and co2 emissions are improved by 30% at 195g/km.
The new SLK 55 AMG is capable of a top speed of 155mph and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds. The SLK 55 AMG will be launched in the UK in January 2012 pricing will be confirmed nearer the time. For the first time AMG is using a sports exhaust system featuring an exhaust flap on each side. This technology resolves the conflict of aims between an emotional sound when driving in a sporty manner and a more discreet engine note in the partial load range.
The AMG sports suspension with Torque Vectoring Brakes and AMG Direct-Steer system provides both impressive lateral dynamics as well as agile handling. The new SLK 55 AMG offers comfortable cruising and dynamic driving style.
