EDITOR GRAHAM KOZAK: I put a lot of on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG the course of a pretty darn ideal September weekend, and be kidding if I didn’t say I enjoyed my in the car.

On paper it’s enough to see why: a 415-hp aspirated V8, rear-wheel drive, galore. I must have five minutes playing the Magic Sky moonroof, it really is I think. And Air Scarf? Neat and it seemed to work

I wanted to see the SLK55 AMG as the 190SL to the SLS 300SL — a respectable cousin to Benz’s range-topping Unfortunately for the comparatively affordable that car would be the far more SL roadster.

Look past the awkwardly abbreviated rear end for a though. A correctly optioned AMG will happily take you 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds on the way to a hypothetical top of 174 mph, which you almost won’t be able to touch if you any respect for law or fellow drivers and all in and relative safety. It even a statement while doing so with the top down the appearance of is diminished.

But something about the car itself satisfying, at least when as a driver’s car and not a road-going space I always wanted more of an It was just so easy to do everything. to go fast, easy to stop, to take a corner with a bit too much confidence only to the car wrestle you back into a line.

Feeling like crawling along the expressway effortlessly passing slow (and even a few not-so-slow gets boring after a few miles. All the while, you have to hard to get the car to grace your with a decent V8 exhaust (puzzling, because AMG is usually good about this) and by the you hear something you like you you’re flying into territory.

Maybe it would be irresponsible to someone keys to a car with a top to 174 mph without giving them an well-woven technological safety net to them up, but in making everything the SLK55 made things less fun.

”He must be ,” you’re probably saying to as you roll your eyes. And true that it’s not to enjoy a top-down expressway in a car like this — I said I had a fun couple of hundred Certainly, performance and handling are as is build quality. There are legitimately cool gizmos to you wide-eyed the whole ride and bold enough to turn (the matte paint job helped) rolling or parked.

But if looking for a raw, emotional you’re better off looking especially for $87K. That of cash really opens up options; for example: The Porsche S without a bunch of silly And I’d love to get in the new Chevrolet for comparison…

SENIOR ONLINE EDITOR CARROLL: Wow, what a little car. At risk of sexist, the SLK is a car that a lot of people rich guys buying for wives, or rich women for themselves. It’s not what call butch. Even in AMG with just about butchifying option and accessory to the modern Mercedes driver it still looks like a in a spiked collar. Yes, in flat gray.

The interior is also given the treatment. There’s plenty of red carbon-fiber and aluminum, but there’s a lot of plastic, considering the $87K tag. The seats squeak crazy when they’re all the way back, which is where want them if you’re 6 feet tall.

With the big and the most overactive traction system on the market, it’s fast. In most cars, curse the always-on electronic hand, but with a wheelbase short and that much on tap, it’s probably the thing that keeps a lot of AMG buyers alive.
