Cool All model AMG drag race

The power of AMG....shame the SLC ended up dead last even beaten by the 'A' Class in this drag race. But I guess the A Class doesn't have a folding roof

Shame the SLC has been dumbed down so much. AMG really don't seem bothered with it. Hopefully the next iteration is better. Certainly wont be buying it after seeing that. Like you say, at least it has the open top aspect which most don't . Impressive performance by the A class.

I wonder how the SLK 55 would have faired....I doubt it would have been dead last.

Dissapointment.
So the new AMG models will just have a tuned stock engine?
What am I missing here?

A buddy has a GLA45 - nothing to sneeze at! Really impressive little car.

I suspect there's a future where a GT C sits in my garage - they rustle my jimmies (in a strangely enjoyable fashion) every damned time....

SLK55 (mine is an 05) is an absolute beast. 27 drag races at the local track) and only 2 losses; one to a Mustang Super Snake and other to a Vette ZR1 (both north of 700HP). No disappointments in the older models... what the H*** did they do??

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

First please update your vehicle (year?: 1996-2017) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Join the gang! Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
