$67,500 US Base Price
$79500.00 Cdn for the base. Ouch!! A bit of a discrepancy I'd say.
As with all CND AMG models, however, that "base model" usually includes a lot of the goodies to begin with (Save for perhaps things like the "AMG Package"). We'll see. Thank you for posting

Hello boys,

you are "lucky guys" ....here in Germany the base price for the 2012 SLK 55 AMG is 72.590 € = 95.419,56 USD (18.02.2012)!!!!!!

What do you think about that?

Bye, Sven

Bad Boy, just wondering, how much is the tax over there for a "luxury" item such as this? In Canada is about 13% of the purchase price, in the States even half of that (varies with location). I bet tax differential alone can amplify the difference even farther.

..we dont have luxury tax as such we only pay VAT 19% on everything (except dog food which is 7% ).

So you are very lucky with the price over there considering the fact that the cars are manufactured in Germany and shipped to the US or CND which is also adding to the production cost of each car.

Bye,

Sven

Well in Alberta, which last I checked was still part of .canada... We only pay 5% GST. No provincial sales tax on anything!!!! No luxury tax either. We are very luxurious... I think there is a low gas mileage tax but if I remember correctly that is a federal thing.

10% (combined GST and PST) here in Saskatchewan for new ones...
Plus only 5% GST if the vehicle is used and was originally purchased here..

...so, assuming the Cdn/US dollars stay near par (highly likely given the current politics and economies), there should still be an advantage to shopping down south in a year or so...

In the UK a SLK 55 AMG will cost Ł54,950 on the road (including all taxes).

$ 87174
C$ 86449
€ 65991

Then you can start adding extras!

In other words, the closer you get to the factory the more expensive it gets

In Saturday's San Diego Tribune newspaper, there was a nice article on the 2012 SLKs. It also stated that the starting price for the SLK55 AMG will be $68,375 (US).
