About the Mercedes Benz AMG SL55
Think of it as a Viper with breeding. Take
everything you've read about
Mercedes-Benz's SL500 — great styling, abundant
horsepower, quick and secure handling — multiply
it by five and you have the AMG SL55.
It's the sound system with 5000 watts of power...the computer with a 5-gigahertz Pentium V processor...it's the latte with five extra shots of espresso. More is better.
And faster. It isn't magic, it's AMG, and it begins with the engine under that long, graceful hood. Each AMG V-8 is hand-built in Affalterbach, Germany, from pieces balanced and matched to work as a functional family. That alone, plus the stroke increase to 5.5 liters, would be enough to make many drivers happy, but AMG adds a high-pressure screw-type Lysholm supercharger with Teflon-coated rotors to pump out 11.6 psi of boost. Add the air/water intercooler, put the engine through the dyno test and up come 493 bhp at 6100 rpm and — sorry, Viper guys — 516 lb.-ft. of torque at 2650-4500 rpm.
