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 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.
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.
