The SLK55 AMG was introduced in 2004 as the high-performance version of the R171 SLK-Class roadster, equipped with a 5.4L M113 V8 producing 355 HP, a 7-speed automatic transmission, larger brakes, a lowered and stiffened suspension, an AMG body kit, 18” alloy wheels, and an additional oil cooler. This 2005 example is finished in the striking and rarely-seen color of Andradite Green Metallic over a Beige Nappa leather interior, and was first titled in Texas in 2005, before being relocated to Wisconsin in 2008, and was acquired by the seller in 2020 with approximately 58k miles. Now showing around 61k on the odometer, this 2005 SLK55 AMG is being offered at auction by the seller based out of Washington.
The exterior is finished in Andradite Green Metallic (816) and is equipped with an electrohydraulic retractable hardtop. Equipment includes AMG-specific front and rear bumpers, AMG molded side skirts, a rear lip spoiler, front bumper vents, gold AMG-branded brake calipers over cross-drilled rotors, heated power mirrors with integrated turn signals, heated windshield wiper nozzles, projector headlamps, fog lights, and smoked LED tail lights. The seller notes that the lower portion of the front bumper has been refinished and that rock chips on the front hood have been touched up. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The 18” staggered-width AMG wheels are mounted with Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires showing date codes from 2013. An aftermarket front license plate tow hook mount is present.
The interior features heated and 8-way power-adjustable AMG-design sport seats upholstered in Beige Nappa leather, with a matching lower dashboard and door panels, contrasted with a black upper dashboard, center console, and carpeting. Driver’s amenities include an electronically heated rear window, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, an AMG three-spoke leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with paddle shifters, full power accessories, electronic cruise control, automatic ambient lighting, rubber-studded brushed aluminum pedals, AMG-branded stainless steel door trim, AMG floor mats, and a 6.5” LCD COMAND infotainment display with navigation connected to a 380-watt Harman Kardon audio system and 6-CD changer. An aftermarket fiberglass wind deflector and the factory wind baffle net are said to be included in the sale.
The SLK55 AMG is powered by a hand-built 5.4L M113 V8 with sequential multipoint fuel injection that produces as much as 355 HP and 376 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by an AMG-enhanced 7-speed automatic transmission, which allows the SLK55 AMG to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 4.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH. Performance features include 6-piston AMG brake calipers in the front and 4-pistons in the rear, an AMG sport suspension with AMG-calibrated coil springs and shock absorbers, and variable speed-sensitive power steering. Said to have been properly maintained, provided documents show a B service was completed in May of 2021. The seller states that an oil change will be performed prior to delivery of the vehicle.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s books, the original factory first aid kit, and a custom car cover.
