The Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG we have here at Skyway Classics is one
of those cars that has high praise from everybody who owns or
drives one. Take Jeremy Clarkson, from "Top Gear", for example.
He owned one of the very first SL55 AMG's made. He wrote in an interview: " Because I am now in middle age I've swapped the Ferrari for a Mercedes-Benz. The SL AMG is used as a safety car at Formula One grands prix, and if you listen carefully when it's out on the track you can actually hear it. A rumbling baritone backdrop to the tenor and soprano F1 motors. It is a staggering noise, a bellow, the sound of wanton consumption.
Looks, as ever, figure just as high, but best of all, of course, is that roof. Push a button and 11 seconds later it's in the boot. So what we have here is a 200mph automatic coup�. A wind-in-the-hair paddle-shift convertible. A full-on, supercharged Tara Palmer Nascar that when you're not in the mood becomes as quiet and as unobtrusive as Nell McAndrew. And there are so many gadgets the handbook is 539 pages long. Simon Schama got A History of Britain into less than that.
I think it's one of the world's greatest cars. Better than the Ferrari F355 that it replaces? No, not really, but let me put it this way: I don't wince every time I get out of it." Great praise indeed!
Features and options include three large cooling air intakes, fog lamps with chrome surrounds, light-alloy wheels, soft leather upholstery, high-quality metal door sills with Mercedes-Benz lettering and embossed aluminum trim elements, removable luggage cover, and don't forget, the convertible top!
