Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this very low mileage Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG, which looks wonderful in its classic combination of Iridium Silver with Anthracite. The promise of open-air touring with all that power and German reliability, is quite irresistible.
The SL-Class is a grand tourer sports car manufactured by Mercedes-Benz since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sport-Leicht, meaning Sport Light.
Mercedes-Benz launched its new SL-Class (R230) of high-performance GTs in September 2001 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, though one had already served as Formula 1's Safety Car at Hockenheim in July. Hailed by Evo magazine as 'a supercar in disguise', the latter was powered by a 5.4 litre V8 engine producing 469bhp and a monstrous 520lb/ft of torque.
In 2006 the SL-Class underwent a facelift and the SL55 AMG received a host of modifications. The improved AMG 5.5-litre V8 supercharged engine at the heart of the SL 55 AMG was equipped with a new, higher-speed supercharger compressor and a larger throttle valve to optimise the fresh-air supply. These modifications, alongside the installation of an even more efficient engine management unit boosted the output of the AMG V8 powerplant from 469 bhp to 510 bhp, while the peak torque has been increased from 700 to 720 Nm. The electronic engine management featured cylinder-selective pilot control of the firing angle: this function set the optimum combustion point individually for each cylinder, resulting in a further improvement in the efficiency of the AMG V8 engine. The SL 55 AMG accelerates from 0 to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and goes on to reach an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
