2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. Nice Newport Beach car with clean Carfax and extensive service history. We’ve put 1000 miles on into enjoying visiting Los Angeles then driving up the coast – this AMG is in its element. The comfort of a hard-top coupe combined with the pleasure of one of the most well engineered and powerful convertibles made.
Travelogue: January 12, 2018. 75 degrees on our drive from ArtCenter School of Design in Pasadena to Malibu and up the PCH – perfect.
More from Wikipedia SL55 (R230) … The SL55 AMG version was released in 2002. The new model has only slight visual differentiators, the most noticeable is the three-slat grille rather than the four-slat version used previously. The top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but can be extended to 300 km/h (186 mph) for an additional cost. The 6.3 litre V8 replaced the current engine for the 2009 model year. Upon release in 2002 this was for its time the fastest automatic car in the world. This was before the SLR Mclaren hit the market in 2003. Jeremy Clarkson owned one of the very first SL55 AMG’s.
Mercedes engineers claimed that the SL55 AMG could reach 208 mph if it was derestricted.
