Either he's pedaling that thing just right, or they have SLK55's with manual transmissions over there???

May be using paddles. Friends say I can make a manual sound like an automagic. Crossfire 6 speed is one of the fastest shifing traanys I'we see (have to granny shift 1-2 or the TC takes over), wonder if a SLK230 is the same.
I just had my '430 out for it's first test drive yesterday. (with the crossfire 6 speed)... I think the thing shifts surprisingly quick. Especially since everyone was saying "it's clunky and slow".

either way, some automatics - if you let off and then get back on it just before the shift - it can sound like a manual with an inexperienced driver.
