2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
MSRP pricing of the SLR, before options, began somewhere around $450,000.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG @ Factory Bremen
The SL500 was the top-selling version of the SL-Class early in the R230
series. It used a 5.0 L V8 engine, which produced 306 hp (228 kW) and 339
ft•lbf (460 N•m).
A 5.5 L 32-valve V8 engine replaced the 5.0 L found in the SL500 for 2007.
The engine is essentially the old SL55 engine without the addition of Supercharger. The 5.5 litre natrually
aspirated V8 can also be found in the new SLK 55 AMG. This model will
retain the SL500 name in most markets, but will be sold as the SL550 in
North America. It now produces 382 hp (285 kW) and 391 ft•lbf (530
N•m). It now accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a limited
top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h).
In 2007, Mercedes will create 75 limited-edition 50th Anniversary SL550s.
According to another article, Mercedes created 550 of these cars, all
pewter in color with burgundy leather, black ash wood trim, 18-inch double
five-spoked wheels, and matching 50th Anniversary Edition luggage.
The SL600 is the highest-output version of the non-AMG SL-Class models. It
uses a V12 engine which produced 493 hp (368 kW) and 590 ft•lbf (800
N•m) from 2003 through 2006 and was uprated to 510 hp (380 kW) and 612
ft•lbf (830 N•m) for 2007. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds,
according to Mercedes-Benz. However Car and Driver achieved extremely
impressive acceleration test figures with 60 mph (97 km/h) achieved in just
3.6 seconds, 100 mph (160 km/h) in 8.6 seconds and a Quarter Mile run in
11.9 seconds at 120 mph (190 km/h).
The SL55 AMG version was released in 2002 with a supercharged 5.4 Liter,
5439 cc Mercedes-AMG V8 engine. This produced 493 hp (368 kW) at 6,100 rpm
and can propel the car to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.7 seconds, according to
Mercedes-Benz. Car and Driver got 60 and 100 mph (160 km/h) in 4.5 seconds
and 10.9 seconds, respectively. The car completed the Quarter Mile in 13
seconds flat at 110 mph (180 km/h).
The SL55 AMG was updated for 2007 with a 510 hp (380 kW), 531 ft•lbf (720
N•m) version of the same engine. With increased power and torque, the car
can now, according to the official website, accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h)
in 4.4 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than before. The new model has only
slight visual differentiators, the most noticeable is the three-slat grille
rather than the four-slat version used previously. The top speed is limited
to 155 mph (249 km/h), but can be extended to 186 mph (299 km/h) for an
additional cost. The 6.3 liter V8 is expected to replace the current engine
for the 2009 model year. Upon release in 2002 this was for it's time the
fastest automatic car in the world. Of course this was before the SLR
Mclaren hit the market in 2003-present.
The SL65 AMG version offers 604 hp (450 kW) from its twin-turbocharged 6.0 liter, 5,980 cc V12 engine at
5500 rpm. It retailed for $179,720 as of 2005. Mercedes-Benz listed a 0-60
mph time of 4.2 seconds on their official website, though several road
tests show that it actually takes under 4 seconds to reach 60 mph (97
km/h). Car and Driver achieved 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 3.8
seconds, 100 mph (160 km/h) in 8.2 seconds and recorded a Quarter Mile-time
of 11.9 seconds at 123 mph (198 km/h).
The SL receives a face lift in 2008 featuring a new front end that evokes
the classic 300SL with a large grille featuring a prominent 3-pointed star
and twin "power domes" on the hood, the car also features new headlights
with an optional "Intelligent Light System" and a new speed sensitive
steering system. A more signifcant option will be the addition of a new
entry-level model, the SL280 with a 228 hp (170 kW) V6. Another
breakthrough for the facelift SL is a new 3.5 litre high-revving V6 with an
316 hp and 360Nm torque in the SL350, a improvement of 44 hp and 10Nm over
the outgoing model. Also the outgoing SL55 AMG will be replaced by the
newer M156 6.2 litre SL63 AMG. This has the new AMG developed 7-speed MCT
"Multi Clutch Technology" semi-automatic transmission. This uses a twin
clutch design, a first for Mercedes and AMG. It features a compact, wet
start-up clutch and double declutching. it's fitted with four drive modes:
"C" (Comfort), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual) and boasts
100 millisecond shifts in "M" mode. The face lifted SL will be debuted at
the Geneva Auto Show.
