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

BRABUS also gives the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG a strategic
visual upgrade. The imposing nature of the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6
AMG front is further strengthened by purposeful modifications. The BRABUS
front spoiler edges attach to the production fascia and are combined with
an additional molding below the special radiator grille with integrated
BRABUS logo. The Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG carbon-fiber hood
scoop adds another striking highlight. The mirror-polished BRABUS underside
guard provides an interesting contrast to the all-black paintwork.
The innovative Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG lighting concept sets
further visual signals. It includes dark-tinted LED lights integrated into
the front spoiler edges. Even more dominant are the black Brabus 6x6 700
Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG xenon headlights and daytime running lights with
integrated turn-signal function for all current models of the venerable
Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG off-roader. The now obsolete
production turn signals on top of the fenders are replaced with
clear-coated matt carbon-fiber covers. In conjunction with the matt
carbon-fiber structure on the hood and the carbon-fiber shells for the
exterior mirrors they round out the belligerent Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G
63 6x6 AMG look to full effect.
Another focus of the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG refinement for
the mightiest G model ever is in the cockpit. The company upholstery shop
meticulously crafted an exclusive BRABUS fine leather ambiance from a
combination of fiery red and black leather and Alcantara.
The great love of detail and the quality of the upholsterers' craftsmanship
in the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG is evident in the pinpoint
precision of the topstitching of the leather floor and the headliner. The
Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG passengers are welcomed by
stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo. The BRABUS interior
designers add some pronounced accents with aluminum components such as
pedals and door-lock pins in the new Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG.
BRABUS B63S - 700 6x6 700 horsepower for six wheels
Two wheels more than normal, plus power in abundance as is the norm for
BRABUS: in the BRABUS B63S - 700 6x6 a particularly exclusive power off-
roader based on the new Mercedes G 63 AMG 6x6 lends the most exclusive
Mercedes G- Class 6x6 of all times even more punch: powered by a 5.5-liter
V8 Biturbo with BRABUS B63S - 700 engine
tuning producing 515 kW / 700 hp (690 bhp), the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G
63 6x6 AMG six-wheel drive powerhouse weighing in at around four tons
sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.4 seconds. The Brabus 6x6
700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG top speed is limited electronically to 160 km/h
(100 mph) due to the 37-inch off-road tires.
As a contrast to the striking black, chrome and carbon-fiber Brabus 6x6 700
Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG exterior, the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG
interior designers picked a fiery red Mastik leather/Alcantara interior.
The Mercedes G 63 AMG 6x6 built in small-series production comes normally
with a 5.5-liter eight-cylinder four-valve Biturbo engine producing 400 kW / 544 hp (536 bhp).
BRABUS can draw upon the world's most extensive engine tuning program for
Mercedes-Benz automobiles in the case of this special model as well.
The BRABUS B63S - 700 performance kit, which is also available for all
other current Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG SUVs, unleashes the inherent power
slumbering in the turbocharged V8
The Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG production turbochargers are replaced by two special BRABUS
turbochargers. BRABUS Gold Heat

active control of the Exhaust note.

button between the subtle "Coming Home" mode and a markedly potent Exhaust note in the "Sport" position. The
Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG Exhaust system also puts its visual stamp on
both sides of the vehicles with two striking dual sidepipes.
With these major modifications the Brabus 6x6 700 Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG
B63S - 700 engine, which is also available for the G 63 AMG 4x4 model,
produces 515 kW / 700 hp (690 bhp) at a low 5,300 rpm. The Brabus 6x6 700
Mercedes G 63 6x6 AMG engine also delivers a much heftier torque.
