For Sale: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

When a sleek and low-mileage Mercedes is within your budget, it's time to take notice. But this one is more than just a head-turner. This 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 took the awesome AMG power and supercharged it from the masters at RENNTech. It's a 385-horsepower rocket ship. So it can coddle you in luxury for in-town driving, but it also knows how to ignite your soul on the back roads.


This generation of the SLK is an awesome sports car. The sharply pointed nose and hood vents are directly borrowed from the SLR McLaren supercar. And since this is the hot AMG version, it really looks extra sleek in Iridium Silver. Plus, it has the fit and finish that comes from a well-respected car that has only averaged about 1,100 miles annually. Widely flared fenders, a well-done spoiler, quad exhaust tips, optional Xenon headlights, and 16-spoke 18-inch wheels are all there to show the sporting nature even if no one sees the AMG badge. But the true trick was the electronic folding hardtop was so well engineered that the design makes for an outstandingly attractive coupe.


The interior is a terrific mix of sporty style and Mercedes luxury. It starts with the supremely comfortable leather bucket seats. They are done in a tasteful black with a gray insert that looks exceptionally well-coordinated with the exterior. Especially because the door panels and dash are done to match. So you just know this car was meant to be seen with the top down. This is loaded with desirable luxuries, like power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power steering, and cruise control. The infotainment system is an AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen unit with satellite navigation, and it connects to the optional Burmester surround sound stereo system. Plus, this car also has great modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. But we bet your favorite features will be the dual-zone automatic climate control and heated seats. Together they can let you dial in the ideal atmosphere, even when the top is down.


AMG is awesome at adding performance, and they truly went for a hot rod kind of mentality with the SLK55. This took one of their best motors, the 5.5-liter fuel-injected V8, and it was shoehorned into the engine bay of one of their smallest vehicles around. Few companies can improve on this kind of legacy, but RENNTech is on that shortlist. They are able to add a supercharger to this V8 while still keeping it looking stock under the hood. Good programming means this knows how to be a comfortable cruiser like a proper Mercedes should be, but a quick prod of the accelerator awakens a true V8 rumble. The full 380 horsepower gets unleashed, and the sport-tuned independent suspension makes this a road-carving drop-top. Another great AMG upgrade is 7G-Tronic transmission. It's a normal automatic when you want leisurely cruising, but the paddle shifters will let you tick through the gears faster than a manual when it's time for some backroads fun. Add in Continental ExtremeContact sport tires and four-wheel disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors and this is an impressive and modern luxury sports car.


Complete with the owner's manual, this is a specialty-built AMG hardtop convertible that went to an even more impressive finishing school. It's the top of the top, and that's what makes it irresistible. Call today!!!
