SLK55 AMG 2013

Title Status --
Exterior Color Mars Red
Interior Color Sahara Beige


This 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG is that powerful, elegant, sophisticated, and all-around stunner. After all, it\'s a sleek and loaded hardtop convertible that also happens to have a hand-built 415 horsepower V8 living under the hood.

This generation of the SLK is an awesome sports car. The long and imposing hood was clearly inspired by siblings like the SL and SLS AMG supercar. And since this is the hot AMG version, it really looks extra sinister in a scorching shade of Mars Red. Crystal clear headlights, widely flared fenders, a well-done spoiler, quad exhaust tips, and beautifully cast 18-inch wheels are all there to show the sporting nature even if no one sees the AMG badge. But the true trick was the electronic folding hardtop was so well engineered that the design makes for an outstandingly attractive coupe. You see everything so well in this example because of its well-respected nature. After all, under 10k miles on the odometer tells you this was more about a weekend driver than a daily commuter.

The interior is a terrific mix of sporty style and Mercedes luxury. It starts with the supremely comfortable leather bucket seats. The clean Sahara Beige color looks timelessly attractive against the exterior red, but this Benz also knows how to remind you of its sinister side with cool glowing red accent lighting. Memory power seats and a power-adjusting steering column mean it\'s easy to dial-in your ideal driving position. This is loaded with desirable luxuries, like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/ignition, power mirrors, power steering, cruise control, dual front airbags, side airbags, and beautiful Black Ash wood accents. This is a modern classic, and that means the best in modern infotainment with one screen controlling the sat nav, Bluetooth, premium audio system, and more. The panoramic roof is a terrific feature to give you sunshine even if the temperature isn\'t ideal to have the folding hardtop stowed. Then again, with automatic climate control and heated seats, it\'s hard not to dial-in a comfortable top-down temperature. It\'s this level of thoughtful luxury that makes for an awesome Mercedes-level experience.

AMG is awesome at adding performance, and they truly went for a hot rod kind of mentality with the SLK55. This took one of their best motors, the 5.5-liter fuel-injected V8, and it was shoehorned into the engine bay of one of their smallest vehicles around. It knows how to be a comfortable cruiser like a proper Mercedes should be, but a quick prod of the accelerator awakens a true V8 rumble. The full 415 horsepower gets unleashed, and the sport-tuned independent suspension makes this a road-carving drop-top. Another great AMG upgrade is 7G-Tronic transmission. It\'s a normal automatic when you want leisurely cruising, but the paddle shifters will let you tick through the gears faster than a manual when it\'s time for some backroads fun. There are some terrific features you expect on a sports car of this caliber, like four-wheel power disc brakes with ABS and drilled rotors. But when you\'re also dealing with a Mercedes, you get features that don\'t even come on some brand-new sports cars, like the adjustable exhaust note and torque vector braking (for excellent handling.)

Complete with the owner\'s manual packet, this is a low-mileage true German speed machine, but it\'s also quite clean, complete, and luxurious. So when it looks so good today, and has so much potential for an awesome future classic, you know this is a deal that will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
