    Default More 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK Pics/details

    Latest rumor has it the AMG version will NOT be getting a Supercharged V6, instead, it'll be getting the old 24-valve 5.5L V8 that's currently in the CLK55 and the ML55, not the supercharged version in the S/SL/CL/E55. Motor makes 362hp/376tq. This was mentioned by the guys in the AMG club (and employees) in germany a few months ago and confirmed in Bild.

    The car's also getting the AirMatic adjustable suspension, Active Body Control, and SBC Sensotronic Brake control. Bye bye 3200lb curb weight!

    Engine choices should be the 1.8L Supercharged 4 banger (~200hp), the new 3.5L V6 (~250hp) and the AMG 5.5L V8 (362hp).

    Here's some pics, which looks very close to the black disguised car that's been running around in the States.

    Personally, I think it's butt ugly from the back (hello BMW 7). The front is acceptable, but it's a bit on the ugly side. But it fits the V8 nicely... Renntech/AMG Supercharger, 600hp!

    Don't plan on getting the R171. Waiting lists are useless, I got bumped on the E55 list probably by a real high roller. Fucking dealerships.

    Picture 5! Yeah I definitely have my eyes set on the next V6 R171. I'm sure there won't be a waiting list for that car and if there is it will probably only take a few months to allocate a spot. Love it!!!

    It won't have the same rims as the R170 320 will it?

    I bet there will be an SLK facelift after a year if the car actually comes out like that, that nose is quite ugly.

    the first pic looks like a manual tranny. Are they coming out with one or sticking with the auto?

    There is a six speed manual for existing SLKs, just not in the AMG models. I really doubt there will be a manual on this newer SLK55.

    I'd get on the list now just in case. When the original SLK came out, we didn't put our deposit down until the Auto Show where they showed the car. Almost 2 year wait! Make sure you put money down at a dealership that doesn't sell off your spot (hint hint).
