2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2012 Mercedes SLK 55 AMG Irridium Silver
The new SLK 55 AMG
Top marks in all disciplines
• Characteristically AMG: maximum performance, minimum
• Groundbreaking: eight cylinder engine with cylinder shut-off system
• Efficient: fuel consumption reduced by 30 percent
• Agile: Direct-Steer system and Torque Vectoring Brake
• Appealing: dynamic design and high-quality appointments
The Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG is the most powerful SLK of all time. Its newly developed AMG 5.5-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with cylinder shut-off system combines ultimate performance with the lowest possible consumption levels. With a maximum output of 310 kW (422 hp) and maximum toque of 540 Newton metres, the SLK 55 AMG outperforms all of its direct competitors. Its fuel consumption of 8.4 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined) and
CO2 emissions of 195 grams per kilometre are some 30 percent lower than those of its predecessor. High levels of driving dynamics are ensured thanks to the AMG sports suspension with Direct-Steer system, Torque Vectoring Brakes and 3-stage ESP®, as well as the AMG high-performance braking system.
Forming part of the third-generation of the SLK, the new top-of-the range AMG model already demonstrates its individuality even at first glance: distinctive AMG light-alloy wheels, specific AMG bodystyling with AMG spoiler lip and two chrome-plated twin tailpipes at the rear complement the classic roadster proportions, while adding a athletic touch. The expressive design of the
SLK 55 AMG is both eye-catching and unmistakable.
The SLK 55 AMG is the perfect embodiment of the new AMG brand claim of "Driving Performance": in the compact high-performance roadster segment, there is nothing to compare to its combination of tangible driving dynamics, superior sportiness, unique high-technology and low fuel consumption.
The SLK 55 AMG accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
Key data at a glance:
SLK 55 AMG
Displacement: 5461 cc
Bore x stroke: 98.0 x 90.5 mm
Compression ratio: 12.6 : 1
Output: 310 kW (422 hp) at 6800 rpm
Max. torque: 540 Nm at 4500 rpm
Engine weight (dry): 187 kg
Fuel consumption, NEDC combined: 8.4 l/100 km
CO2 emissions: 195 g/km
Acceleration 0 - 100 km/h: 4.6 s
Top speed: 250 km/h*
* electronically limited
The world's most fuel-efficient V8 engine combines the lowest consumption levels with the superior power delivery and the characteristic sound experience which only a large-displacement eight-cylinder engine can provide.
In line with its "AMG Performance 2015" strategy, with the new V8 engine Mercedes-AMG is meeting its promise to continue to reduce both the fuel consumption and emissions of new models over the next few years -- while reaching new heights with the central brand claim of "Driving Performance". At the same time, Mercedes-Benz GmbH is also demonstrating its social responsibility with the M152.
New naturally aspirated eight-cylinder engine closely related to the V8 biturbo
The new naturally aspirated V8 engine is based on the AMG M157
5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine presented in 2010, which powers the E 63 AMG, CLS 63 AMG, S 63 AMG and CL 63 AMG. Numerous design features are identical, such as the displacement, bore/stroke ratio, distance between cylinders, four-valve-per-cylinder design, ECO start/stop function and direct petrol injection technology. Distinguishing features versus the M157 include the cylinder shut-off system, new intake air ducting, new cylinder heads, the modified valve drive, an adapted oil supply system and an optimised crankcase.
Exclusive combination of advanced technologies
The high-tech M152 powerpack enthralls with a combination of advanced technologies which is unequalled anywhere in the world. No other petrol engine features direct injection at a pressure of 200 bar, spray-guided combustion and piezo injectors, all in conjunction with map-controlled cylinder shut-off, an all-aluminium crankcase with "spectacle" honing, four-valve-per-cylinder design with continuous camshaft adjustment, a high compression ratio of 12.6:1, a ECO start/stop function and generator management -- while revving to a maximum speed of over 7000 rpm. All of these measures lead to high degree of efficiency, which is a precondition for high fuel efficiency and low Exhaust emissions. Moreover, deciding in favour of a large-displacement, naturally aspirated eight-cylinder unit with cylinder shut-off resolves the conflict of aims between high output/torque delivery and decidedly low fuel consumption levels.
Pure AMG SOUND: 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG ( R172 ) - TheGetawayer
According to your comments the SLK 55 clearly won my roadster-sound-battle ( http://youtu.be/L6zo6os-KVs ), which is why I wanted to upload one last video of this car for you to enjoy its incredible sound...
