Incredibly comfortable, blisteringly fast, laden with tech and a convertible… what more could you want from a car? The Mercedes SL55 AMG was hailed at the time of its launch and as a consequence, demand quickly outgrew the supply making a hugely hot car to get your hands on. Fast forward 17 years and the numbers still stack up as very impressive. The 5.0-litre V8 from the SL500 has been strengthened and its capacity increased to 5.4-litres and after bolting a supercharger on coupled with some clever engine management and few other tricks, the final product is 469bhp and a 0-62mph of just 4.5 seconds. Even by today’s standards, that is quick.
The SL isn’t just fast, it’s also comfortable, surprisingly practical and clever. Fitted with Mercedes’ ABC (Active Body Control) suspension setup, you can switch from a wafty and supple ride to a more direct and engaging Sport mode at the touch of a button and then when the sun comes out, the folding metal Vario-roof opens up the cabin in just 16 seconds creating the ultimate supercar experience with the wind in your hair.
This particular example is in a flawless condition and has covered only 25,000 miles since 2003. The SL55 is quickly becoming a collectable modern classic and low-mileage examples like this one are sure to look after their owners as much as their owners look after them.
Finished in brilliant metallic silver with light grey heated and cooled leather seats, this car comes with all the standard SL55 AMG options like ABC suspension, a 5-speed automatic gearbox with steering wheel0-mounted paddle shifters, BOSE surround sound and Linguatronic voice control along with factory Navigation, Keyless Go and many many other extras.
Finance and warranty can be arranged on request.
