2006 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG Silver A2342
It would be most beneficial for you to not get upset when people stare. Driving a car as beautiful as this, you're bound to get looks at every stop. In fact, just taking the car out for photographs I had more people checking out the car than I could count! With a sticker price of over $130,000, your new Iridium Silver Metallic 2006 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Roadster with heated and cooled seats, panorama roof, Keyless Go, parking sensors, and navigation is one of the truest icons of the sport automotive world! This is the epitome of a luxury sports car! It has captivating power, exhilarating performance, and head turning styling. This heartthrob is powered by a 5.5 liter V8 that produces 493 horsepower and is mated to a 5-speed Automatic Transmission. Listen to the sound of the throaty dual Exhaust. You can't even to begin to imagine the compliments and looks you are going to get driving this sensational automobile! Plus with just 17,240 miles on it, you'll feel like you'll have much of the life of this great car to enjoy. Let's take a more in-depth look at this great marvel of modern machinery. EXTERIOR: The exterior IRIDIUM SILVER METALLIC paint is in excellent condition. It glistens in the sunlight brilliantly, just like the name implies! Let's talk about the engine. The 5.5L supercharged 24-valve V8 engine is extremely powerful as can be expected of an engine with 493 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The sound of the engine singing through the dual Exhaust is certainly a melodious tune. What else would you expect of a vehicle bearing the prestigious AMG badge? One major feature is the two-seater's retractable aluminum hardtop, which lowers in just a few seconds at the touch of a button. It provides top-down convertible driving fun along with the security and quietness of a hardtop. With its excellent body moldings and styling this is truly a beautiful sport coupe. Take a look at the front end of this car. You'll notice it doesn't have the traditional SL 55 front end. Instead, it has the beautiful SL 65 bumper for an even better-looking vehicle. The High Intensity Discharge Xenon Headlamps really illuminate the road for night driving that is crystal clear, and during bad weather conditions they also wash themselves. The turn signals are in working order and feature a one-touch turning feature which will make the signal flash three times with just a tap. The dual heated power mirrors even have built in turn signals. The 19" AMG alloy wheels elegantly compliment the tires, which are in good to average condition. There is no denying that is truly a beautiful car. Also, since it's a 2006 model, it still has the remainder of its 4 year/50,000 mile basic and powertrain warranties. INTERIOR: The interior cabin is a unique "statement of class and distinction." To say the least, it is exquisite while at the same time, extremely sporty. A well-chosen ASH leather color scheme is found in the seating, carpets and trim work which looks great with the silver exterior. The leather seats have also been upgraded and are both heated and cooled to keep you comfortable in chilly or warm weather. By the way, that was a $1,200 upgrade! These seats adjust to every possible position and to make sure you are as well-positioned and comfortable as possible. They even have a pulse massage feature! You will find the whole interior to be in excellent condition. This is a roadster you can use 365 days of the year! When you're ready to take more control of the car you can use the steering wheel mounted shift buttons to navigate through the gears. No one likes to get lost. You certainly wont with Mercedes-Benz awesome navigation system. To help your car stay free from dings and dents, the parking sensors will be of great service for aid and alerts as you park so you don't bump into hard-to-see objects. You will love the crystal clear sounds of your BOSE AM/FM stereo CD player and rear 6-disc CD changer. This system also features eight speaker cabin surround multi-channel digital sound! One of the extremely nice upgrades to the interior of the automobile is the panorama roof. Even when the top is up, this $1,800 factory addition will still allow you to bring in the outside. You will certainly love the Keyless Go feature which allows you to start the car without even inserting your key. Just depress the brake and push the start button on the shifter and you're ready to roll! Your SL 55 presents the following features to make your ride pleasurable yet thrilling: power driver and passenger seats with memory, power mirrors, cup holders, roll bar, universal integrated garage door opener, auto-dimming rearview mirror, illuminated climate-controlled glovebox, cruise control, leather steering wheel, trip computer, and dual zone climate control. Your Mercedes-Benz also comes with one key, a set of factory books, and floor mats.





Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review with Chris Moran
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com Join Chris for a ride in the ultra-powerful Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. Presented by D&M Motorsports, hosted by Chris Moran A funny thing happened at the 1934 Eifelrennen race at the Nürburgring. Alfred Neubauer, the Zeppelinesque chief of the Mercedes team, directed his crew to grind off all the bone-white paint that distinguished the Benz factory racers. Hence the origin of silver as the German color for racing. But that's not the point. Neubauer's motive had nothing to do with aesthetics. In those days, the competition weight regs specified a maximum limit, rather than a minimum. Neubauer's paint trick was designed to get the cars down below the max. The rulemakers set an upper limit, because they saw weight as a dynamic asset. A bigger car would have a bigger engine, and thus go faster. The objective was to slow the cars down. Ha. This story came to mind early in our first lap of Wisconsin's Road America racetrack in the new Mercedes SL55 AMG roadster. The Neubauer parable flickered in my mind's eye like a prewar movie as I hit the rumble strips on the exit of Turn Five and started up the hill. Wow. Was ist los? See, getting out there onto the exit curbing was not the intent upon entering the turn. First lap in a new car - and an expensive one at that - lots of power, cold tires, etc. Easy does it. But when the throttle went down at the apex, the car was across the track and onto that alligator curbing before you could say, "Götterdämmerung!" This little tableau, reinforced by other examples of mass exerting its relentless influence, emerged as the overriding impression of an all-too-brief Road America experience, laid on by Mercedes-Benz as the finale of its North American SL55 AMG press launch. Given the car's capabilities, it was certainly the right venue - long straights punctuated by hard braking and generally uncomplicated turns. No esses, no tricky transitions. Moreover, Mercedes had enlisted a platoon of pro road racers to demonstrate those capabilities as dramatically as possible. The demos came after we ordinary mortals had done a few laps, and with a light rain at the end of the session, this became quite dramatic, indeed. But as we strapped on a new SL55 to head home, the nagging question persisted: What's up with all this avoirdupois? The standard SL500 we tested last April was certainly no wraith. When the readouts on the C/D scales finally settled, the tally for that one stood at a resounding 4172 pounds. That's SUV territory, but even so, the AMG version is heftier: 4411 pounds. What's the deal? Weight is the enemy. These guys must know that. Make no mistake, this is a formidable automobile, Moby Dick mass notwithstanding. Check the motivational specs: 493 horsepower at 6100 rpm, 516 pound-feet of torque manifesting itself along a wonderfully flat curve from 2650 to 4500 rpm. It's the most potent Benz ever offered in North America, according to the manufacturer, and also the quickest factory Benz we've ever tested: 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds, 0 to 100 in 10.9, the quarter-mile in 13 seconds flat at 110 mph. In contrast, the SL500 tested in our April issue hit 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, 100 in 14.5, and covered the quarter in 14.3 seconds at 99 mph. The disparities seem minor on paper, but the real-world distinctions are dramatic. Crack the throttle, and this posh heavyweight lunges forward like a shark that's been invited to nibble a chunk of Britney Spears. It dissects traffic like a superbike and exudes a sense of mechanical resentment when a soulless microchip arrests the rush at 156 mph. There's a corollary to the traffic-sorting prowess, incidentally. This car seems to stir up civilians like few others, and not always in a delighted (read "Lookit that!") way. All too often we'd cruise past some joker only to find him angrily attached to the Benz's rear bumper, somehow offended at being overtaken. We believe a similar emotion animated the people who divided Marie Antoinette into two unequal portions in 1793, and we furnish this observation as a public service to potential buyers: Caveat emptor.

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 brainer. 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.

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.
