Hey Cool Car Fans,
Earlier today, I was over at Murray Motors in Denver checking out a 2007 BMW X3 for a client when I spotted this sweet 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Roadster.
The AMG series started 40 years ago, back in 1967, where two German’s set out to build the best race cars on the road. Since then Mercedes-Benz has been creating some of the finest performance vehicles in the world. The SL55 being one of them.
What’s the big deal about this vehicle? For starters, the AMG means that each engine is assembled by hand, by a single master technician. Engine tolerance can have no variation greater than 1/10th of a millimeter. And for 2006 Mercedes-Benz AMG introduced a 6.3 liter engine that is the most powerful V8 production engine that they have ever made, which is the power plant for this high performance roadster.
The SL55 is the real deal with its V8 engine delivering up to 510hp and 531 lb-ft torque. This baby will go from 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds and the way it’s equipped it came in with a final price tag of $149,855 for this spectacular piece of machinery.
