Slk 550

Walking out from Home Depot this afternoon I saw an 09 or later (it had the split front lip) red slk pulled up to park in front of me. It had these two stuck-on, crome-fins tacked onto the sides of the car in the spots where the "AMG 6.3" badges would go on 63 models. These were gigantic, truck sides ones. I shook my head and walked to my car. As I drove past it from behind, I noticed the badge that read "Slk550".
Wish I had taken a picture or talked to the owner. It had Maryland plate on it so keep an eye out for this rare car if you're in that area. Driver was an african-american woman who looked to be in her 40s.

SLK550? I'm confused... Was this a 350 with the 3 replaced by a 5, or a 55 with a 0 added to it (who would do that??)

It has the trapezoid exhausts so it must have been a 350 or 300 rebadged with an extra 5.
