2012 slk55 amg

Hello everyone!!! I am so excited to tell everyone that I got the new SLK55 AMG! It is a remarkable car. There were none available in the Midwest so I ended up picking up the closest one (which was in Maryland) and I drove it home last Friday. I have already put on 800 miles! This car is in a different league from the old AMG. I used to feel that the old SLK was Mercedes' way of telling you that you should have spent a bit more money and gotten an SL, where every material is a tad nicer. However, this new SLK is truly a shrunken SL63. I checked out both cars and this won hands-down! I hope these pictures will upload, but if they don't I'll have to see what's wrong.

Thanks for all of the help!

Beautiful car. What does it say on the fender badge? "V8 something", not Kompressor, right? I thought it was naturally aspirated?

Thanks for all the great comments! And yes, the side just says "V8 ///AMG" and it is indeed also black/black. The car is incredible-I hope I get to see some of you guys on the road in the Detroit-area this summer!

Congratulations! Only the second 2012 SLK 55 here? Hope to see plenty more. I saw a black 2012 SLK 350 at the local MB dealer yesterday. Looked gooooooood!

The 172 is growing on me. Especially the cup holders. The ones in my '09 can barely be considered cup holders. Your car is beautiful!

To be completely honest, I was originally not the biggest fan of the R172. However, after spending a few days with it in person, it feels better than the R171 in both cosmetics and functionality. And by the way, if anyone has any questions about the car, let me know (if I might be able to help)

Looks great! I picked up my 55AMG a few weeks ago- couldn't be happier with the car - I went with red though.

A great car! Love it. Just one advice - throw away your camera and make some better photos!
