Thanks for posting those. I'm liking the new SLK55 AMG more and more (funny how that works). I wonder if the spin doctors at Renntech, Kleemann etc will have a supercharger for this thing??

The rear almost reminds me of the SLR McLaren while the front reminds me of the SLR (not bad things I might add). This is definitely becoming a contender for a second vehicle...

Now the new R172 is more like a German car but to me the R171 is like an Italian design. I still like the front view of my R171.

I agree. I think the 172 has lost the sports car look with that bulging bonnet (hood) The 171 has that look that will make it a classic

I just read the figures for horse power for r172 amg..around 400hp and around 400 trq out of a 5.5 v8 turbo. Other than a cleaner engine there is lots more potential in the motor since porsche turbos have been making this power out of 3.6 ltr for over 10 years. Just a bit disappointing figures for a great car. I guess it's like the cayman so much potential yet always on the back burner.
