Another truck accident and a SL 55 AMG
Footage from Pretoria shows a Coca-Cola truck failing to stop in time at a
red light, smashing into another truck and taking out a Mercedes-Benz SL55
AMG in the process.
The crash took place on the R21 that heads into Pretoria. According to the
YouTube uploader (calling himself "Maverick Jedi") — who captured the
footage with his helmet-camera — trucks often under-estimate the braking
required on the long downhill straight.
In fact, he called it before it even happened, first saying "and we wonder
why there're so many f**king truck accidents here", and then "watch this,
watch this, watch this, watch this!".
Seconds later, the vehicle hits another truck before crunching into the
diminutive Mercedes. Thankfully, the elderly driver of the SL55 AMG
appeared to be unhurt.
Check out the video below, but be warned of a spot of strong language.
Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive 2012 Chris Moran
Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Video Test Drive Review with Chris Moran. Presented
by D&M Motorsports.
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class of two-seat roadsters has been significantly
upgraded for 2007. These were wonderful cars before, and they're even more
wonderful for 2007.
For 2007, all SL models get revised styling, with new front, rear, and side
sheetmetal along with new interior decor.
The entry-level model, now called the SL550, gets a bigger, more powerful
engine, and a new seven-speed automatic, giving it a big Boost in performance and a sportier sound. The
SL55 AMG gets more power as well. The steering and active suspension have
been upgraded on all the 2007 models, sharpening the handling.
At the same time, these cars provide grand touring intimacy, for quiet
conversation or unimpeded stereo performance. New upholstery materials give
the cabins a richer appearance. Drop the top and they deliver comfortable,
top-down motoring, putting the wind in your hair, and whisking your
troubles away. Buffeting is well controlled, so you don't even have to put
up with much wind.
Few sports cars can boast a continuous 50-year history like the
Mercedes-Benz SL can. First offered as a two-seat 300SL roadster in 1957,
the SL-Class brought heart-stopping good looks, fuel injection, independent
front and rear suspension and disc brakes to the sports car party, and has
been in the Mercedes-Benz lineup ever since, leading the applied technology
in the sports car segment with things like the disappearing steel top,
radar, sonar, active hydraulic suspension and composite brakes. Today we
have the safest, quickest, flattest-handling and prettiest SL-Class cars in
half a century.
The SL-Class comes in one body style, a two-seat roadster with a steel
retractable hardtop. The SL550, SL600, SL55 AMG, and SL65 AMG deliver
varying levels of performance, however, ranging from fast to faster. The SL models compete in the luxury
sports car segment with the BMW 6 Series convertible, the new Jaguar XK,
the Porsche 911 turbo cabriolet, and the
Aston Martin V-8 Vantage.
I just bought this SL550 for my wife. What a beautiful car. She wanted a
sports car and I would not let her drive my Z8 :-) This car is such a nice
all around car. It had about 8K miles on it and is 2.5 years old and like
another mentioned about 50% of initial MSRP. It was a certified MB so we
got a additional 2 year 50K warranty on top of the existing warranty. The
car is built like a tank and has plenty of power. It is no Z8 but a much
better every day car and tourer and quite the luxury cruiser. We could have
spent $60K on a new Corvette GS or the same on this TT&L and it was a no
I have owned my SL 550 for about 18 months so I have driven it in all
conditions. I have to say it is absolutely the finest car I have ever
owned. When the top is up, it is as quiet as they come. I often conduct
handsfree conference calls in it and people think I am at the office it is
so quiet. When the top is down, oh man, it is awesome. The car is plenty
fast in the SL550 trim but if you need a rocket ship, go for the SL55 or
65. But be careful, learn how to drive a car with that kind of power! The
ride is smooth and acceleration is excellent. I live in a big city where
the interstates are competitive. I have all the power I need in this car. I
would highly recommend it!
Just finished a 2,000 mile trip in our newly acquired 07. We drove it from
Illinois to Oklahoma City, a trip that had us passing over interstate
highways at 75 MPH and rolling through the backroads in Oklahoma. This
amazing beast transport the passengers with a feeling of swift, solid sure
footedness and capability. The engine is ferocious- at 100 MOH it is barely
breathing hard. At more down to earth levels of speed it gets over 27 MPG.
That's right, we saw 27.8 MPG indicated and our math upon fillup confirmed
the number. The seats are nothing short of nirvana in terms of features and
adjustability. The Sat Nav works well and Sirius Radio is a wonder. The SL
550 is simply word class.
I bought my 2007 sl550 with 3800 miles on nov 5 2009 on nov 6 2009 I was
hit head on by an accelerating Jeep Cherokee that turned into my lane
across a double yellow line, car was totaled but I walked away with some
disc and whiplash injuries. There is no doubt this car saved my life, I
traded a 2004 Corvette and a 2005 slk350 to get this sl550. If I was in any
other car I would have been killed. There is no doubt this car saved my
life, I am buying another one and will never buy any other car. Thank you
Mercedes for your build quality and crash worthiness.
