Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG with F1 Technology
From the display, AMG aero kit adds front and rear wheels combined with a lightweight wide black berkelir. In the interior, not much changes, except for a pair of seats wrapped in leather.
The focus of reform is carried out precisely at AMG 5.5L V8 engine made from aluminum. At the heart of the runway has been using a new air intake, cylinder heads, valve drive systems, lubricating, crankcase, and most important-this-cylinder deactivation system that is inspired by F1.
With that change, do not be surprised if the energy boost from 62 HP to 422 HP with torque also increased to 540Nm (especially for European specification). While for the American market, maximum power is limited to 415 HP at 6,800 rpm with maximum torque of 398-ft at 4500 rpm.
According to Mercedes, acceleration 0-100 km per hour can be achieved just 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 250 km per hour (electronically limited). SLK equipped with 7-speed automatic transmission with AMG Speedshift three modes, namely sports, manuals, and efficiency.
Although powerful, fuel consumption is 8.5 l/100 km or 1 liter can travel a distance of 11.7 km, quite economical for a car powered 422 HP. Can be economical because AMG has changed the management of the engine, especially when driving with the engine speed between 800 to 3600 rpm using only four cylinders.
