Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG

First and foremost, only about 300 cars in the SL-class were customized by AMG prior to 2003. The SL 55 AMG was sold through AMG in the R 129 body from 1998 to 2001 in very limited quantity. This was the predecessor of the production R 230 SL55 AMG that is sold today. The SL 55 AMG was updated for 2007 with a 510 hp version of the exact same engine. The new model has only slight visual changes, with the most noticeable being the three-slat grille rather than the four-slat version used previously. But really, how many people really count the slats? Anyway, more importantly, it now accelerates from 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds faster than the previous model. This seems to be a much bigger deal than the number of slats, but who knows. Anyway, the top speed remains limited to 155 mph, although soon they will be increasing maximum speed to 186 mph, which delights many people, but not the police. In terms of the older 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG, which retailed for $119,750, standard Equipment included leather upholstery with wood trim, retractable hard top, wind deflector, automatic climate control, power steering, power windows with express down, power locks, active body control suspension, anti-theft system, cruise control, fog lamps, 3-button garage door control, illuminated glove box with climate control, xenon headlamps with heated washer/wiper, auto-dimming mirror, dual heated power outside mirrors with memory and left-side auto dimming, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, night security illumination, 12-way power seats with memory and lumbar support, leather-trimmed steering wheel, 8-speaker Bose sound system, and really the list goes on and on. Nothing, absolutely nothing has been spared on this model. Further, additional packages are offered for even more extras if one could even imagine there were any more.
