The SL55 Is built from ground up by AMG. The basic shell and parts are provided by Daimler Chrysler and then AMG does the rest.
V12,
to add to what S600 sayd, the SL55 has a totally different _ i forget what...a major chasis component to handle the extra torque... after all it does put out 55% more horsepower than the SL500.....do the math!

Guys those Rims ure talking about first of all dont come on the SL. They are only for the C or CLK or E. And the 1 SL in the Golden colour are Brabus Rims if Im not mistaken.

RG is right,

However the SL55 does have the choice of optional 5-spoke wheels, but not twinspoke......just 5 wide spokes..like the F1 kit for the SL55.

Are u sure u saw 5-spoke (twinspokes) V12?

Ok guys. Heres the Silver SL500.



I doubt this is Sunny deols car. Cos when I seen his car it had stock alloys. So the count is 5 for SL500's in Bombay.

A guy in Jaipur has a hot colour,
See it often at the service station here,
I hear guys sayin that SL500 is a waste of money, Lacks horse power,
But i seriously think it's money well spent,
And that too with a peace of mind with MB officially present at most cities!
