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.

· 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.

SLK 32 AMG vs Porsche Cayman S
I really love the SLK. My wife drives an SLK350 with the AMG suspension.
The SLK is a really fun car to drive. But its just not a match on the
track for a Porsche Cayman S.
He doesn't figure it out at first, then he knows and gives me a passing
signal. The first passing signal was in the wrong place for the Yellow
Video from feb 2008 at Motorsportranch.com on the 1.7 mile road race track
during an TheDriversEdge.net event. For Details about this Porsche Cayman

2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
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 S 63 AMG
Mercedes-Benz S 550 / S 500
We had the chance to drive the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG (V222)
for three days in the surrounds of Bielefeld and Dortmund. Here is our In
Depth Review of the strongest Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 2014 Mercedes-Benz S
65 AMG (V222). We enjoyed our test drive with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65
AMG (V222), we hope you will like our video review as well. Make sure you
dont miss the Start Up and the Exhaust
intro about the car
With the introduction of the W140 in 1991 in Geneva, Mercedes introduced a
12 cylinder engine in a S-Class for the first time, reacting to BMW effort
with the 7 series top modell. In 2004 Mercedes introduced the first S65 AMG
(after they already offered a AMG powered V12 in the S55 AMG). Last year I
was able to be part of the world premiere of the new S-Class, now be called
222 series and the debut of the all new S 65 AMG which had its debut at the
LA auto show 2013.
Let me get the facts out of the way first. The S65 AMG has a fine 6 Liter
V12 engine (for those Mercedes freaks - its the M279) that comes with 630
hp. Between 2.300-4.300 rpm it gives you a maximum torque of 1.000 Nm -
equals 738 foot pound of torque. All this power goes right to the rear.
Even though the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG weights 2250 kg (which equals 4960
pound), it accelarates from 0 to 100 km/h or even from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3
seconds. The topspeed is reached at 250 km/h / 155 mph - unless you spend
some extra bucks on the AMG drivers package - doing that your speed rush
will not end before reaching the 300 km/h, or 186 mph.
Ok, you can close your mouth and dream on. At least in Germany, you need at
least 232.050 Euros or 222.000 U$ to buy a S65 AMG. But then you have a
whole bunch of premium options included that you pay for extra on the
regular s-class for instance the AIR-BALANCE package, the Burmester High
End 3D-Surround Soundsystem with the COMAND Online infotainment-System, the
LED Intelligent Light System, Park-Assist package, MAGIC VISION CONTROL,
SPLITVIEW, the seat package with the massage functions and the panoramic
Mercedes builds an 80 Liter (21 gallons) tank in the S65 AMG and says you
can get a milage of 19.8 mpg (equals 11.9 liters for 100 kilometers). So in
theory at least, you should be able to drive a distance of 600 km / 373
miles without getting gas. Honestly, I even believe it is possible, but
then ... who would buy this car to drive it all slow and carefully instead
of just making the V12 roar. Yeah right, and not disable the ECO-Start
Just to rund up those numbers and figures - the S65 AMG only comes as the
long version called V222 (the short version is the W222) and it is 5.29m
long (17 feet 5 inch), 2.13m wide (7 feet) including the mirrors and its
height is 1.5m (5 feet). It has a turn radius of 12.3m (40 feet 5 inch).
Overall you are allowed to store up to 500 kg (1102 pound) in the car.
