Well actually I feel good looks but slightly low on specs. I mean after AMG's touch Plus Brabus I think the 0 to 60 time is a little on the higher side. Well may be its just me. Not too big fan of the SLK's but, the very same engine by AMG in the SL55 gives almost the same figures, this being lighter than the SL55 + Brabus getting it from 5.5 to 6.1 it should be a lot quicker than what it is.
But hey! Again, its probably just me.

I feel the same way PS...

but this isnt the same engine as the SL55 ...this engine is N/A, not super'd like the SL55, CL55 & E55.

chk out this thread for further info > http://www.team-bhp.com/cgi-bin....;hl=g55

I was however dissapointed with top speed...and 0-100km cld have been a little better IMO.

cya

I simply Loooove this car!!!!. I Love the looks and the rims of this car(I also loved the pure Mercedes one but this is one step ahead). But do you know what the best part of it is??? Autocar UK tested the SLK and they looooved its handling and gearbox etc. They even rated it above the Z4 which quite a lot of car mags have rated highly( but i think its sucks) and also for the cabin quality they said it was amazing!!!. The stuff that was usually a concern for them in all MB's were now erradicated and they rated this one amazing machine!! This can only mean good news for MB. The only thing they said that concerned them was the looks, and i think that quite a percentage of the people out there have actually liked the looks and not gone against them like the Chris Bangle affect. Although there are some people who dont like them but its not as high as to one of those Bangle creations

BTW the SL55 has a 0-62 time of 4.5 seconds so this Brabus actually goes faster than the SL and by NOOO means is that slow cuz that means it can destroy a 360 royally. and plus with it being a Coupe/Convertible it is a very desirable car
