We are talking about rear wheel HP.

FYI, by the book - HP & torque measured at the flywheel

By the book numbers:

SLK32
Tare weight - lbs 3295.9
Tare weight - kg 1,495
Torque ft/lb - 332
Torque Nm - 450
Rated power HP - 354
Rated power Kw - 260
Tare weight (lbs) / HP - 9.310
Tare weight (kg) / Kw - 5.750

SLK55
Tare weight - lbs 3395.1
Tare weight - kg 1,540
Torque ft/lb - 376
Torque Nm - 510
Rated power HP - 360
Rated power Kw - 265
Tare weight (lbs) / HP - 9.431
Tare weight (kg) / Kw - 5.811

The SLK32 has a better weight to power ratio but the torque numbers push the SLK55 ahead.
