2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG
An open top or a convertible may not be a very good idea for the Indian market but that does not really stop our auto enthusiasts from getting their hands on one, they are perhaps the next best thing that money can buy to enjoy the open roads and feel the winds flowing through your hair. There are couples of convertible already available in our Indian market and Mercedes Benz added their latest roadster to their Indian lineup recently which definitely is an attention grabber. Yes! I am talking about the all new Mercedes Benz SLK 55 AMG which is a more powerful version of the SLK class already available in our Indian market. Now a roadster with a V8 heart hmm! That is something to really look out for.
The standard SLK class was launched by Mercedes way back in the year 1996 in the International market, so this is definitely not a new car which was added to the German premium brand lineup infact this was probably one of the sportiest, lightest and shortest roadster available in the market. Now many will ask why we prefer an AMG tuned car. The reason is simple Mercedes Benz stuffs the standard cars with a massive engine under the hood and some visual elements to make it appear more beefy and muscular although these cars may not be the most practical ones in the real life situation but who cares if you have the money and want to get your hands on a powerful shiny exotic for yourself.
The Mercedes Benz SLK55 AMG as I already did mentioned above comes packed with a powerful top-of-line V8 engine which packs some serious punch, this roadster is capable of hitting the 100km/h mark in just 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h mark.
