The newest addition to the Mercedes-Benz SLK Roadster range is the 2012 SLK55 AMG. At the heart of the car is the signature drop-top and a new aluminum, naturally aspirated V8 5.5 liter power plant (415 hp and 398 lbs-ft of torque) that employs gasoline direct injection with a stop-start feature for greater fuel efficiency. To add icing to the cake, a seven-speed Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic cog box ensures lightning fast switches. The SLK55 AMG will be available early next year.
