2007 slk55 AMG in Storm Red

Hi All,
I have seen several posts where some of the members were looking for the Storm Red color. Here is a picture (not a real good one, but should give you an idea of the color). Hope this gives those interested a good idea. Take care!!!!

Doug,
Better cool it with the wife. Buy her a tanning package!! Painting her will go over like a lead balloon.

To the rest of you, Thanks for all the nice comments. I was a little scared of the color when I ordered it but, I am very happy with the way it turned out, specially with the beige interior. thanks to you all, again!!!

I have one too!

I actually pick mine up in Germany on Friday!

It's also Storm Red but I went for the black/ash two tone interior.

I was nervous about this color, because nobody has seen it since the 2007 change from firemist to storm.

The pic you posted shows well. The only difference in appearance with mine will be the interior and the standard rims, because I didn't go for the 030 pkg.

When I get back from my trip, I'll post some pics of my beast in its native habitat!

Congrats,

I don't know why the biege doesn't come with the two tone seats, I prefer two tone, it just looks better.

Can't wait for the pics.

My only regret was that I didn't stay longer and didn't have a great camera, so didn't take that much pics.

ya i noticed that there was two options, one was like a one night thing, and the black alps rally? it was several nights, wish I could go back or ship my car there! haha. That would be great!

The only thing I dont mind about it so much is, I got my car at EDP price, without doing EDP! Its the families 8th benz bought at the dealership. (4th convertible, 2 of which were Slks!

I recommend the alps rally, it's a nice way to get to know your benz and the beautiful parts of southern Germany and northern Austria, 1200 isn't bad for five nights in five star hotels, with breakfast include and some had dinner. The scenery was breath taking.

I'll let you know... But I can guarantee it won't cost me 1200 bucks!
