This is a stunning example of a very well looked after SL55 AMG.
In Mystic Blue Metallic, this car is as rare as hens teeth.
Take everything you've read about Mercedes-Benz's new SL500 great styling, abundant horsepower, quick and secure handling multiply it by five and you have the SL55 AMG.
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. How about 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds with strong acceleration to 155 mph when the computer caps the power? Or active suspension that offers the option of how much body roll you'd like?
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.
This is also one of the best-looking supercar performance powerplants strong and splendid with its sand-cast finish and supercharger ribbing.
