Prices for the new Mercedes SLK 55 AMG, which is available to order now, start from £54,950.
The £54,950 AMG model is the new direct-injection version of AMG’s 5.5-litre V8 engine, which offers a 421hp and 398lbft and comes equipped with a seven-speed AMG speedshift 7G-tronic plus automatic transmission with 3 intelligent modes – Controlled Efficiency (C), Sport (S), and manual (M).
The new AMG 5.5-litre V8 engine propels the Mercedes from 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds and all the way to its limited top speed of 155mph.
There has been a 30 per cent reduction in fuel economy and CO2 emissions thanks to the introduction of AMG’s cylinder management system, which shuts off two cylinders on each bank of the V8 when the car is running on a light throttle usage. This offers a combined fuel economy of 33.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 195g/km.
AMG sports suspension featuring the Torque Vectoring Brake and AMG direct-steer system is fitted as standard.
AMG has complemented the classic lengthy bonnet and snubbed tail proportions and the SLS-inspired design of the latest SLK with exclusive bodywork for the SLK 55 AMG. The interior also has exclusive AMG styling and trim.
