December 2 is going to be the official launching day of one of the most powerful convertible cars from Mercedes Benz. The amazing engine is a 5.5 liter aspirated V8 capable of developing 421 horse power and an incredible 540 Nm of torque.
This mighty engine is being placed on a light body making the car literally fly on streets by accelerating from 0-100 in just 4.6 seconds, the maximum speed being limited at 250 km/h. A new 7 G – Tronic Plus automatic transmission with 7 speeds offers three driving options called Manual ( M ) , Controlled Efficiency ( CE ) and Sport ( S ) but also a fuel efficiency of nearly 11.89 km/l and less CO2 emissions. AMG models from Mercedes are very popular among Indian buyers because of successful previous sales of models like SLS coupe , E 63 , C 63 or even the very fast jeep G 63 .
With a brilliant sporty look given by rear and front aprons perforated disk brakes and 18 inch alloy wheels the new SLK 55 AMG is expected to outperform other powerful roadsters such as Jaguar F Type or Porche Cayman S.
