The Mercedes-Benz SLK, now known as the SLC, is one of the Stuttgart automaker's all-time hits. Released in 1996, there was a short two-seat roadster with compact dimensions but not compromising on luxury. Most notably, its party piece was, and continues to be, a folding metal roof. That's why you should snap up this second-generation 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG with just 48,000 miles done. Not only is it a fine cruiser, but a potent AMG variant packing a brawny V8 under its skin.
Wearing a slick black suit, this 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG will look equally at home on the highway as it will in the city center. As an AMG variant, it has the AMG Styling Pack to enhance its looks. A set of 18-inch AMG multi-spoke wheels in silver further enhances its good looks. Although there's discrete AMG badging, the quad exhaust tips at the rear are a further indication of this car's potency. We also spot a set of projector headlamps. Touch a button, and the folding metal Vario roof will retract in just 22 seconds. The power side windows on the frameless doors also drop, granting you a proper convertible experience. Inside, you'll find a cozy but luxuriously appointed two-seat cabin. Featuring a black color theme with Nappa leather seats, this 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG is a lovely place to spend time within. The seats are heated and feature the Memory Package, plus power adjustment. Of course, the V8 elevates the experience to a whole new dimension, but we'll talk about that aspect shortly. For now, let's discuss the cabin amenities. You've got dual-zone climate control, a Harman/Kardon sound system, an AMG ivory steering wheel with multifunction controls, cruise control, and trip computer.
This 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG has a potent 5.5L V8 under its hood. Offering 355hp and 379lb-ft, zero to sixty takes under 4.5 seconds to achieve. A 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels. Large ventilated disc brakes with slotted rotors on all wheels ensure sure-footed stopping power every time. There's also lower and stiffer suspension than non-AMG variants and an additional oil cooler for the engine. The top speed is electronically limited to 155mph, but if the limiter is removed, 170mph capability has been noted.
