Say what you about the SLK’s recent which marks the halfway in the life of the second generation, but no getting away from the 55 menacing presence – our glossy test car looked both and understated. The intelligently configured and solid cabin is still a in ergonomic clarity. And then that massive 5439cc V8 into the nose.

Because the 55 was a hit with buyers in Europe and Mercedes decided not to drop the new V8 into the SLK. Customers the 5.4-litre – and after just a few in the 55, you’ll understand why. It doesn’t feel that — flick the seven-speed transmission into drive, and the SLK along, V8 just ticking with a lovely liquid Gearshifts are all but imperceptible and with all torque to draw on, you can make and smooth progress without going above 3000rpm. And gear is so long legged 85mph equates to just on the rev counter. But it only takes a stab of the throttle to unleash the engine’s massive power.

At 1575kg, the flagship SLK is no lissom but with 355bhp at a low 5750rpm and of torque — 375lb ft at – performance is never anything than neck-straining. Gunned standstill it will smoke its and bellow its way to 60mph in just five seconds. Mid-range is just as devastating, the SLK rocketing into three figures ease, those four spitting out a hard-edged serrated

The chassis rarely feels by all that power – even provocation it feels unflappable and Stiff too – it’s only the deepest potholes that the smallest hint of shudder in the rearview mirror. The brakes – 340mm front and 330mm discs – are superb, easily with the car’s speed plenty of feel and fade-free

What is it? Mercedes’ 451bhp C63 AMG, a bit extra. AMG’s Performance doesn’t actually turn up the V8’s volume at all, the extras are all added elsewhere. For you get new springs (10 per cent stiffer), brakes, aluminium trim, a steering wheel and, notably, a locking rear

What’s it like? Well, the diff and springs do a great endowing the C63 with levels of and lateral grip that AMG pilots may not be accustomed to. You will to try very hard to unstick the and even if you do, the diff will sure that things progressively enough for you to cope. The have terrific stopping too, and decent pedal

The best bits of the C-class’s remain, including fantastic seats, and the AMG steering wheel is a to hold.

Now, the downsides: the diff is a tad (its whine becomes after a while) and the trade-off for rigid chassis is a ride borders on uncomfortable; it tramlines a too.

Our test car was fitted optional 19in wheels, so we’d ask for a test drive on before dismissing the suspension.

While a bit shy of, an unobtainable Rolls-Royce or Bentley, the CL the finest Mercedes money can buy — and it take plenty of cash to it home. I normally mention at the end of a story, but here it is now — $118,665, a few options (base price With that over let’s consider what you get for sizeable sum.

Most is the sheer beauty and presence of the Based on the large S-Class platform, the CL is a pillarless coupe — a these days. The themes of Mercedes products are especially blended here. The side swell boldly around the and a deep crease rises the trailing edge of the front and sails over the rear, in a frontleaning taillamp lens. The angle of roofline to rear and turned-up headlamps all contribute to a sporty look.

Inside, you’ll find luxury you can imagine. A stunning of traditional leather and wood and plastics swirl about you in motion. The wood-covered central puffs out its chest proudly. for many features have a metallic touch. The small, analog clock looks one of those stratospherically priced that hide in glass at upscale jewelers. The cognac and leather on my 14-way adjustable seats was about as fine as you want.

My Pewter CL550 the standard 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 With 382 horsepower and 391 lb.-ft. of on tap through a sevenspeed adaptable transmission, the 4,486-pound car dashes 0-60 in just 5.4 seconds. The features adaptive shift — it conforms to your driving — and touch shift for near-instant gear changes if you so desire.

For all its the CL550 is a pleasant traveling My son nearly cried when I had to it. Some weeks are simply than others, I explained.

Reviewer’s rating:

What is it? A mild mid-life for Mercedes compact MPV, some aesthetic revisions and tweaks – and a good chance to with the A-Class’s bigger

Of most relevance will be economy improvements across the with the smaller petrol getting the option of Merc’s ECO system and the diesel versions revised engine tuning. 180CDI and 200CDI versions of the use the same 2.0-litre common diesel engine, but in different of tune – with the 108bhp being the most popular – and – choice.

What’s it like? As expect from such tweakery, pretty much to the original. The revised styling is unnoticeable, but inside the cabin a audio system looks and better than the previous

It’s no more useful before. The cabin is airy and but despite being over a longer than the A-Class based on, the B-Class feels any more spacious for front or seat occupants. It’s match cheaper mainstream for utility, not least because it comes with five

Dynamically the B-Class doesn’t any thrills, but it’s a solid-feeling performer. Our test car came the optional CVT automatic transmission, copes well in town but saps open road and delivers acceleration at the expense of to its very industrial top-end A shame, because the standard manual ‘box is a sweet-shifting

And before I go, a special thanks to our Shiv for sending us each of the reviews. As always my good we sincerely appreciate each and tip.
