2003 Car Review: Mercedes-Benz AMG



MODEL: Mercedes-Benz AMG ENGINE: 3.2-liter supercharged V6 349 hp @ 6,100 rpm/332 lb-ft @ rpm TRANSMISSION: Five-speed automatic manual control WHEELBASE: in. LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT: x 67.5 x 50.4 in. STICKER $56,115

At last year’s New Auto Show, a Mercedes-Benz introduced the AMG version of one of the company’s by saying you could give AMG an desk to work with and you end up with an office desk could go from 0-60 in 5 seconds.

Well the SLK sports car exactly an office desk to with. In its mildest form, a 2.3-liter supercharged four-cylinder it is capable of seven-second 0-60 and a top speed of 130 mph. In this it is a very nice sports at a Mercedes-Benz price of $40,265. It with the BMW Z4 and Porsche Boxster, of which were introduced at the time.

Mercedes offers a warmer of the SLK in the 320, with a 3.2-liter V6. version puts out 215 horsepower and a few tenths off the 0-60 time. It is at $46,715 for people who would a little more performance out of the This version would with the Boxster S, for example.

week’s tester, however, has competition in the Small German Car class. It’s the AMG-improved of the SLK, with a supercharged V6 that delivers 349 horsepower and can the little rocket from in 4.8 seconds with an automatic Granted, the automatic has a manual but you can leave it in D and get all the performance you’d I know that the capabilities of the SLK 32 AMG are far than my abilities, even I’d love to try it out on a track

But the SLK 32 AMG isn’t just about It’s a fine little car (as opposed to the larger SL-Class that is a ball to drive. you have the potential under foot for some exciting makes the AMG that more

One of the SLK’s greatest attributes is its When the car was delivered, it came as a coupe. But push a button in the of the console and the coupe coverts to a in just a few seconds (you to be certain that a shade is in the position in the trunk first, but to protect whatever may be in there). And a convertible around, even in summer, isn’t bad, between the two roll bars each seat is a screen takes away a lot of the backwash that can make a convertible car uncomfortable in cool weather. a long way from the days of my where I had to manually remove the top time I wanted it down, and the reverse when I

wanted it up, like in sudden storms.

Cargo volume is compromised by the though. You can put 9.5 cubic feet of in the trunk with the top up, but only 3.9 feet with the top down. begs weekending to the location the top up to hold the luggage, then the top down once you have the location, and putting it back up for the home. It’s a small for a lot of fun.

Being a Mercedes, the SLK has all the of a luxury car. Power seats, steering column and conform the cockpit to the environment you The seats, while flat, are at least when you have padding to put into them. The falls right to hand, so if you to use the manual mode, it isn’t

The SLK32 AMG uses 17-inch with 225/45ZR-17 tires up and 245/40ZR-17 tires in the rear. The has also been tweaked by AMG to better handling without ride quality, while the disc brakes are larger to stop it from exciting

The Mercedes-Benz SL cars have been slightly out of my league. not to say that a car costing $56,115 is in my but it’s a lot less that the of the larger car. There’s a large market for cars in price range that Corvette and Viper, for example, the German manufacturers.

But the SLK32 AMG, while at the top of SLK lineup, has a lot to offer if you’re to pony up the pennies.
