The R170-platform SLK 230 Kompressor was introduced in 1997 for model year 1998 to compete with the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z3. Setting it apart was its folding hardtop, though its additional weight detracting from the performance of the 185 hp 2.3 L supercharged I4 engine and automatic transmission. The SLK was on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1997.
A 5-speed manual transmission was added for 1999 along with the 215 hp 3.2 L V6 and 6-speed manual transmission in the 2001 SLK 320.
An AMG model was added in 2001, with a 354 hp (264 kW) supercharged version of the 3.2 L V6. This SLK 32 AMG was the best-performing SLK ever, and was a direct rival of the BMW M Roadster and Porsche Boxster S. It is only offered with automatic transmission. The SLK AMG engine is also hand built.
Not all Mercedes SLKs were built in Bremen, Germany, the SLK 320 being built in South Africa. The very first R170 Mercedes SLK was completed on January 29, 1997 and last on April 7, 2004.
Summary of all versions and engine specifications:
· SLK 200 - 2.0 L (1998 cc) 136 hp I4 engine, 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 9.3 seconds, top speed of 208 km/h (129 mph). NB Exported only to Portugal, Italy and Greece.

MERCEDES SLK55 AMG - ONE DAY WITH AN AMG
This video shows our roadtrip with a powerful german musclecar. A white
Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG. You can see revvings, onboard scenes and
tunnelrides, also some detail shots.
The SLK is not longer a women's car, the new AMG is a real rocket!
Unfortunately I have not filmed the end of the trip. Undercover police
stopped the AMG with over 120 km/h - driving license is gone. Shit happens!
But at least we got a vid of the trip.
What do you think about the car? About the sound and the look? Write down

Mercedes-AMG S65 V12 Biturbo Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 3-24-2012
Saturday at barona drag strip how about drag racing your mercedes and doing
a burnout completely down the race track.
Mercedes-AMG GmbH, commonly known as AMG, is a subsidiary of the
Mercedes-Benz car company specializing in high-performance luxury cars.
AMG models typically have more aggressive looks, higher performances,
better handling and better stability, and more extensive use of carbon
fiber than their regular Mercedes counterparts. AMG models are typically
the most expensive and highest-performance of each Mercedes series, with
the exception of non-AMG V12 models found in the most expensive nameplates
of the Mercedes lineup.
6.0L V12 Biturbo
Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG (2008)These are powered by a variant of the
Mercedes-Benz M275 engine. The AMG powerplant has an all-new design of the
bi-turbo system, which features larger
turbochargers and a new, more powerful
charge-air cooling system, and the increase in the engine displacement (to
5980 cc) as well as many other engine design measures.
These are the only AMG vehicles using a 5-speed automatic transmission,
which has a torque capacity of 796 lb·ft (1,079 N·m), as the newer
7G-Tronic is limited to 542 lb·ft (735 N·m), not enough to handle the
torque from the V12 engines.
Coinciding with the facelift of the CL-Class for the 2011 model year, the
2011 CL65 AMG will have an enhanced engine, with AMG redesigning the Exhaust gas turbochargers and adding new engine electronics.
It will now make 621 horsepower, and go from zero
to 60 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds (0.2 seconds faster than the 2011 CL63), with an
electronically limited top speed of 186 miles an hour. The update will also
improve fuel economy and reduce carbon emissions by 3.5% over the outgoing
model. The 2011 S65 AMG will also receive an upgraded engine making
463 kW (630 hp) and

( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

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.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!
