Default You are not going to believe this!!! SLK55SLR

You are not going to believe this!!! Dubai is crazy. Period. SLK55SLR. Period. I will wait for AMG to officially better this, true to their tradition. Till then savour the pics.

Owned by Mohammed bin Sulayem, those who remember, he is a famous Middle Eastern rally driver, I think he ventured into powerboats too, not sure.

Needless to say he also owns
Ferrari Enzo, F40 & F50
Porsche GT1
Mercedes CLK GTR
Jaguar XJ 220

And hell knows what else.....

Damn....

There is one in India too, but I think its not a 55. If I'm not mistaken the pics are also taken.

EDIT: My mistake, just checked, there is a SL500 with the SLK nose in India.

Errr....you seem to have misunderstood the thread all together. This originally was a SLK 55 AMG, which now has a SLR, of the McLaren-Mercedes fame, engine in it. So read 626 bhp going to the rear wheels. How he manages to put all that power down with those tyres, and whether his ESP warning light flickers, or remains continuously lit up is a different issue.

There is none other like this in the whole world, i'm sure, and definitely nothing like this anywhere in India.

Once again, these are not pics of just another SLK 55 AMG, it's a SLK 55 with a SLR engine!!!!

Maybe he got the engine from one of the crashed SLRs, a couple have been totalled so far.
