Does anyone know when the production of the 171s will end?

Has anyone traded in to take advantage of any lower prices as the distrubs try and sell the 172s?

2010 AMG 55 model ended last year is what I was told. The other models they continued to make 2011's

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I got the last build for 2010 AMG 55 for Canada so I was told.

Inventory pretty much dried up in my area. MB do not have any used 350s lying around either. Seems like salesman I have spoken to have a cautious towards the 172 have been luke warm. People seem to prefer the baby mclaren better. They said time will tell.

Production of the R171 is done, with 172's hitting the dealers in about a month stateside. Will be mid/late 2012 before we see a 172 AMG.

My price list as of a month ago lists the SLK55.
Hi could be possible being in another part of the world, anyone seen or heard of a 2011 55 AMG?

I just happen to be at my local MB dealer yesterday to aproach while others were having this exact conversation. The manager being present apparently was in the middle of saying their location was the one who sold the last one in production for Canada while I was aproaching, shook my hand saying this is the lucky owner.

I also recall someone mentioning last year in a thread saying the run for 55 AMG's had come to a end but others models would still be made.

Factory production on the '55 stopped last year globally as far as I know. Would be interesting to go to a dealer in Oz and try and order a custom build and see what they said! :)

WIS and EPC do not show a MY11 SLK55.

I received this reply on an enquiry to MB a while back. Not seen any news on the new 55 though.
