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.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6X6 - Test Drive
MG has come up with something a little special. After rummaging through its
closet in Affalterbach, Germany, the company found the blueprints for a
kind of baby Unimog, or a Geländewagen with the Unimog's off-road
capability. It's a vehicle that AMG originally developed for the
Australian army, with three axles and five locking differentials, because
Australia can be that kind of place. The Aussies ordered 2000 units, then
someone at AMG headquarters in Affalterbach said, "Hey, let's drop our
new V-8 in it." The intent was clearly to create the planet's most extreme
off-roader with S-class-interior comfort. AMG has built two stretched G63
AMG preproduction vehicles, each spanning more than 19 feet in length for
more legroom and featuring a pickup bed for those fun antiquing jaunts to
Outer Mongolia. It mounted four heated and ventilated leather seats in each
vehicle and replaced the conventional axles with portal axles providing
18.1 inches of ground clearance. Both of these "baby Unimogs" were then
sent to Dubai to show around to potential customers. "If there is enough
interest, we will build a small number of vehicles," says G-class project
leader Axel Harries. But before any emir could climb behind the wheel, we
took one of the prototypes for a serious romp. Our conclusion: The G63 AMG
6x6 is an automotive desert fox.
Entering this beast is akin to climbing The Nose on El Capitan. It's more
than 18 inches to the center of each wheel, and the cabin's floor is
another four inches higher than that. So before you invite a lady for a
ride, we recommend purchasing a handy stepladder—chromed, to match the

2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
Deutsche Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1a-p4G0N24
We had the chance to drive the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC
Coupe (C217)for two days in the surroundings of Pisa and Florence in Italy.
Here is our In Depth Review of the newest Mercedes-Benz S-Class creation,
the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG (V222). We enjoyed our test drive with the
2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) , we hope you will like our
video review as well. Make sure you don't miss the Start Up and the Exhaust sound.
The new S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest dream car to augment the Mercedes-AMG
model range. Exciting lines underpin this two-door model's design.
Dominance and sensual purity combine to lend the vehicle irresistible
presence and effortlessly superior sportiness. Equally impressive is the
combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction
and groundbreaking efficiency. As the most powerful member of the
BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is a paragon of poise and assurance.
Boasting an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the S 63 AMG
Coupé delivers exceptional performance with remarkably low fuel
consumption. Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive is available
as an option. And there is a world first in the shape of the curve tilting
function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, to further
enhance both driving pleasure and comfort.

As with the transmission, customers also get a choice when it comes to the
AMG sports suspension: the rear-wheel-drive S 63 AMG Coupé is equipped
with MAGIC BODY CONTROL, while the all-wheel-drive version of the two-door
model features the full air-suspension system AIRMATIC with the adaptive
damping system ADS PLUS. Specific front axle kinematics -- including higher
camber, a larger anti-roll bar and a stiffer subframe carrier on the rear
axle -- have been developed exclusively for the S 63 AMG Coupé 4MATIC.
These measures enhance the vehicle's agility when driving dynamically.
Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG V12 Biturbo Sound!
In this video you see a black Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG with the V12 Biturbo in Monaco. The sound is not that loud as
the 6.2 V8 engines from AMG but I think the V12 Biturbo sounds pretty good as well!
What do you prefer; an S63 AMG or S65 AMG?
