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.

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
2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
